abstract (eng):

We consider a general scheme of parallel classifier combinations in the framework of statistical pattern recognition. Each statistical classifier defines a set of output variables in terms of a posteriori probabilities, i.e. it is used as a feature extractor. The output vectors of classifiers are combined in parallel. The statistical Shannon information is used as a criterion to compare different combining schemes. By means of relatively simple arguments we derive a hierarchy between different methods.
