Summary
Objectives: To introduce abductive network classifier committees as an ensemble method for
improving classification accuracy in medical diagnosis. While neural networks allow many ways
to introduce enough diversity among member models to improve performance when forming a
committee, the self-organizing, automatic-stopping nature, and learning approach used by
abductive networks are not very conducive for this purpose. We explore ways of overcoming this
