Comparison of Bagging and Voting Ensemble Machine Learning Algorithm as a Classifier

Ledisi Giok Kabari


Bagging and Voting are both types of ensemble learning, which is a type of machine learning where multiple classifiers are combined to get better classification results. This paper presents an experimental comparison of Bagging and Voting ensemble machine learning algorithms. The iris dataset which has 150 data instances and 5 attributes was used to conduct the experiment.  It was observed that bagging is a better ensemble learning algorithm than voting based on the experimental data used for classification.


Key words: Bagging, Voting, Machine Learning, Classifier, Algorithm, dataset.
