Abstract
We introduce an extension of the modified valuedifference kernel of $k$nn by replacing the kernel's default class distribution matrix with the matrix produced by the maximumentropy learning algorithm. This hybrid algorithm is tested on fifteen machine learning benchmark tasks, comparing the hybrid to standard $k$nn classification and maximumentropybased classification. Results show that the hybrid typically outperforms the lowerscoring of the two other algorithms, often significantly; in a majority of cases the hybrid yields the highest accuracy of the three algorithms. Error analysis indicates that the hybrid's errors overlap more with $k$nn than with maximum entropy modeling
