Abstract: Ensemble Learning has been proved to be an effective solution to learning problems. Its success is mainly dependent on diversity. However, diversity is rarely evaluated and explicitly used to enhance the ensemble performance. Diabetic Retinopathy (DR) automatic detection is one of the important applications to support the health care services. In this research, some existing statistical diversity measures were utilized to optimize ensembles used to detect DR related signs. Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) algorithm is adopted to select the ensemble base models using various criteria. This paper evaluates several optimized and non-optimized ensemble structures used for vessel segmentation. The results demonstrate the necessity of adopting the ensemble learning and the advantage of ensemble optimization to support the DR related signs detection.
