We investigate the effects, in terms of a bias-variance decomposition of error, of applying class-separability weighting plus bootstrapping in the construction of error-correcting output code ensembles of binary classifiers. Evidence is presented to show that bias tends to be reduced at low training strength values whilst variance tends to be reduced across the full range. The relative importance of these effects, however, varies depending on the stability of the base classifier type.
