Aggregated Conformal Predictor

Inductive conformal predictors are a computationally efficient version of conformal predictors, but they can be argued to be informationally inefficient. Aggregated conformal predictors were introduced by Carlsson et al. (2014) in an attempt to achieve both computational and informational efficiency; however, they lose the formal property of validity. One version of aggregated conformal predictors is cross-conformal predictors (Vovk, 2015). An empirical study of the validity of aggregated conformal predictors was carried out by Linusson et al. (2017).
