Binary Classification Function
From GM-RKB
(Redirected from Predictive Relation)
A Binary Classification Function is a predictive function that is a classification function (whose target class is a binary set).
- AKA: Binary Classifier, Two-Class Classifier, Predictive Decision Model, Two-valued Classifier, Binary Classification Model.
- Context:
- It must have input of : Data Item(e.g. a Test Instance)
- Function Output: Data Value from Binary Set.
- It can be a Predictive Logic Relation if the Target Class is the Boolean Set.
- It can make a Correct Prediction or an Incorrect Prediction.
- Its Performance can be measured in terms of:
- True Positive Rate (Recall/Sensitivity), True Negative Rate, Precision, Fallout, Accuracy, F-Score.
- It can be an Input to a Binary Classification Task.
- Example:
- A Credit Risk Model that predicts whether a person is a good credit risk (Yes, No).
- A Predictive Logic Relation (based on a Logic Relation).
- A Logistic Classification Function (based on a Logistic Function).
- a Decision Tree Classification Function (based on a Tree Data Structure).
- Counter-Example(s):
- a Multiclass Classification Function.
- a Continuous Function.
- a Weather Forecasting Model that predicts whether there will be frost tomorrow, the day after, and the subsequent day.

- QUOTE: The support vector machine (SVM) is a widely used tool for classification. Many efficient implementations exist for fitting a two-class SVM model. The user has to supply values for the tuning parameters: the regularization cost parameter, and the kernel parameters. In this paper we study the support vector machine (SVM)(Vapnik, 1996; Schölkopf and Smola, 2001) for two-class classification.
