  1. SEN, SPC, and ACC refer to the sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy of the classifier with the validation set. The accuracy of the classifier does not increase significantly when more attributes are added, implying that some of the attributes contribute little to the performance of the classifier. The table shows the performance of the classifier when constructed from combinations of attributes (attributes used are indicated by 1, not used by 0).
