Paper Abstract

Improved performance evaluation results for complex data sets, in the Bayes error estimation sense, are shown by first decomposing the data sets into approximately normal modes before input to the error estimator. More specifically, the utility of a particular nonparametric Bayes error estimator, the Parzen error estimator, is generalized to multimodal data sets by preprocessing the data through a mode seeker before input to the error estimator. The utility of the mode seeker and the Parzen error estimator for data analysis and performance evaluation is demonstrated on a field collected radar data set.
