18 In summary, (a) all classifiers show a drop in performance when there are unrepresented cases in the training set, with (b) a slightly higher impact on simple classifiers than in complex ones. 3 Experiment 3: Class Definition Changes Error rates for the four classifiers have also been assessed in the presence of changes in class definition: rules that lead to more complications (MC) and rules that lead to fewer complications (FC). A comprehensive evaluation has been carried out assessing all the possible mismatch combinations (see Table 6 for details).

Distance semantics is a robust way of handling dynamically evolving and possibly contradictory information. In this paper we show that in many cases distance-based entailments can be computerized in a general and modular way. We consider two different approaches for reasoning with distance semantics, apply them on some common cases, and show their relation to other known problems.

But, does it mean the Simple NN is more robust under this particular change? 03 for all of them. In this case, the reason why the Simple NN’s error rate is very close to those of the more complex classifiers is just that the NGP/SW environment is easier to classify. Note also that the error rate is even lower than that of the original NGP. 04 for the Complex NN). To sum up and get back to the questions posed in Sect. 2, we found that: (a) a drop in performance is observed by all the classifiers but to a lesser extent by the complex ones and (b) although differences may increase or decrease when a population drift takes place, the complex classifiers remain either more accurate or as accurate as the simple ones.
