Real life classification problems require an investigation of relationships between features in heterogeneous data sets, where different predictive models can be more proper for different regions of the data set. A solution to this problem is the application of the local boosting of weak classifiers ensemble method. A main drawback of this approach is the time that is required at the prediction of an unseen instance as well as the decrease of the classification accuracy in the presence of noise in the local regions. In this research work, an improved version of the local boosting of weak classifiers, which incorporates prototype selection, is presented. Experimental results on several benchmark real-world data sets show that the proposed method significantly outperforms the local boosting of weak classifiers in terms of predictive accuracy and the time that is needed to build a local model and classify a test instance.
