Table 3

Comparison of model results. The table summarizes the results for three different models on a subset of 439 samples. The amount of information provided by the features is compared as well as the model evidences and the cross validation error. The values in parentheses give the results for a reduced sample set, which contains no samples labeled BLACK with the degradometer software.
