A modified version of Boosted Mixture of Experts (BME) is presented in this paper. While previous related works, namely BME, attempt to improve the performance by incorporating complementary features of a hybrid combining framework, they have some drawback. Analyzing the problems of previous approaches has suggested several modifications that have led us to propose a new method called Boost-wise Pre-loaded Mixture of Experts (BPME). We present a modification in pre-loading (initialization) procedure of ME, which addresses previous problems and overcomes them by employing a two-stage pre-loading procedure. In this approach, both the error and confidence measures are used as the difficulty criteria in boost-wise partitioning of problem space.
