Paper Abstract

Performance measures are derived for data-adaptive hypothesis testing by systems trained on stochastic data. The measures consist of the averaged performance of the system over the ensemble of training sets. The training set-based measures are contrasted with maximum aposteriori probability (MAP) test measures. It is shown that the training set-based and MAP test probabilities are equal if the training set is proportioned according to the prior probabilities of the hypotheses. Applications of training set-based measures are suggested for neural net and training set design.
