Averaged N-Dependence Estimators (A1DE and A2DE) achieves highly accurate classification by averaging over all of a small space of alternative naive-Bayes-like models that have weaker (and hence less detrimental) independence assumptions than naive Bayes. The resulting algorithm is computationally efficient while delivering highly accurate classification on many learning tasks. For more information, see, G. Webb, J. Boughton, Z. Wang (2005).
