Applications of information fusion include cases that involve a large number of information sources. Methods developed in the context of few information sources may not, and often do not, scale well to cases involving a large number of sources. This paper addresses specifically the problem of information fusion of large number of information sources. Performance of Support Vector Machine (SVM) based approach is investigated in input spaces consisting of thousands of information sources. Microarray pattern recognition, an important bioinformatics task with significant medical diagnostics applications, is considered from the information and sensor data fusion viewpoint, and recognition performance experiments conducted on microarray data are discussed. An approach involving high-dimensional input space partitioning is presented and its efficacy is investigated. The aspects of feature-level and decision-level fusion are discussed as well. The results indicate the feasibility of the SVM based information fusion with large number of information sources.
