Imbalanced classification: an objective-oriented review

A common issue for classification in scientific research and industry is theexistence of imbalanced classes. When sample sizes of different classes areimbalanced in training data, naively implementing a classification method oftenleads to …

Neyman-Pearson classification: parametrics and sample size requirement

In contrast to the classical binary classification paradigm that minimizes the overall classification error, the Neyman-Pearson (NP) paradigm seeks classifiers with a minimal type II error while having a constrained type I error under a …

Neyman-Pearson classification algorithms and NP receiver operating characteristics

In many binary classification applications, such as disease diagnosis and spam detection, practitioners commonly face the need to limit type I error (that is, the conditional probability of misclassifying a class 0 observation as class 1) so that it …

A survey on Neyman-Pearson classification and suggestions for future research

In statistics and machine learning, classification studies how to automatically learn to make good qualitative predictions (i.e., assign class labels) based on past observations. Examples of classification problems include email spam filtering, fraud …

Neyman-Pearson Classification under High-Dimensional Settings

Most existing binary classification methods target on the optimization of the overall classification risk and may fail to serve some real-world applications such as cancer diagnosis, where users are more concerned with the risk of misclassifying one …
