Applying Conformal Prediction to the Bovine TB Diagnosing

Abstract : Conformal prediction is a recently developed flexible method which allows making valid predictions based on almost any underlying classification or regression algorithm. In this paper, conformal prediction technique is applied to the problem of diagnosing Bovine Tuberculosis. Specifically, we apply Nearest-Neighbours Conformal Predictor to the VETNET database in an attempt to allow the increase of the positive prediction rate of the existing Skin Test. Conformal prediction framework allows us to do so while controlling the risk of misclassifying true positives.
