I'm relatively new to machine learning (started about 5 months ago), and I'm looking at potentially implementing an ensemble classifier as part of my research.
I have built 3 models that I use to classify whether sales data is going to win or lose. Each model produces the probability of the sale winning or losing, and then I apply thresholds to those to classify them as either a "Win", "Loss" or "Borderline Loss". There are 25 variables, all of which are discrete.
The three models are Naive Bayes, Tree Augmented Naive Bayes (TAN) and Logistic Regression. I am using the bnlearn package for the bayesian classifiers, and a simple glm for the Logistic Regression. All models have high accuracy performances when tested on unseen data:
Naive Bayes Accuracy: 88%
TAN Accuracy: 91%
Logistic Regression Accuracy: 92%
I want to try implementing an ensemble classifier to see if I can get the best possible accuracy across all three models. My question is, how do I go about implementing something like this? I can't find too many examples online, at least not with these models for implementing one. From what I have read, one way to do it is to have a voting system, where if the 2 models predict the sale will win, but 1 predicts with will lose, then it is classified as a win. But what happens in this case if all 3 models had different predictions? I have all my prediction data ready, as in I have all the test data and each models prediction for each sale, my question so is, how would I proceed from here?
If someone knows of any available resources or tutorials that may help, I would greatly appreciate it!
