Boyce Sigweni (2013-2016)

Boyce investigated the use of metaheuristic search to find effective feature spaces for case-based reasoners. This will be accomplished by searching for feature weights and applying wrapper techniques. It will be an extension of:

We are working in the problem domain of software project effort prediction.  Key outputs include:
