Abstract: The generalization error bounds for the entire input space found by current error models using the number of effective parameters of a classifier and the number of training samples are usually very loose. But classifiers such as SVM, RBFNN and MLPNN, are really local learning machines used for many application problems, which consider unseen samples close to the training samples more important. In this paper, we propose a localized generalization error model which bounds above the generalization error within a neighborhood of the training samples using stochastic sensitivity measure (expectation of the squared output perturbations). It is then used to develop a model selection technique for a classifier with maximal coverage of unseen samples by specifying a generalization error threshold. Experiments by using eight real world datasets show that, in comparison with cross-validation, sequential learning, and two other ad-hoc methods, our technique consistently yields the best testing classification accuracy with fewer hidden neurons and less training time.
