Average of absolute correlation (AAC) at each stage and its relationship with NB, SVM. The top panel gives the AAC for each dataset. ‘Original’ refers to the entire dataset; ‘filtering’ refers to the stage after the procedures in Section 5.1; ‘Detailed evaluation’ refers to the stage at the end of Section 5.2. The bottom panels show the relationship between the AAC on the original dataset with NB, BMSF-NB, SVM, and BMSF-SVM classifiers. The original AAC appears to be reversely related to the accuracy of NB. The relationship of the original AAC with SVM is not obvious. BMSF-NB and BMSF-SVM are much less influenced by the original AAC.
