<p>An effective data reduction technique based on vector quantization is introduced for nonparametric classifier design. Two new nonparametric classifiers are developed, and their performance is evaluated using various examples. The new methods maintain a classification accuracy that is competitive with that of classical methods but, at the same time, yields very high data reduction rates.</p>
