Compact classification ensemble

Syntax

cens = compact(ens)

Description

cens = compact(ens) creates a compact version of ens. You can predict classifications using cens exactly as you can using ens. However, since cens does not contain training data, you cannot perform some actions, such as cross validation.

Input Arguments

ens

A classification ensemble created with fitensemble.

Output Arguments

cens

A compact classification ensemble. cens has class CompactClassificationEnsemble.

Examples

Compare the size of a classification ensemble for Fisher's iris data to the compact version of the ensemble:

load fisheriris
ens = fitensemble(meas,species,'AdaBoostM2',100,'Tree');
cens = compact(ens);
b = whos('ens'); % b.bytes = size of ens
c = whos('cens'); % c.bytes = size of ens
[b.bytes c.bytes] % shows cens uses less memory
