Evaluation Measures for Quantification: An Axiomatic Approach

6 Sep 2018 Fabrizio Sebastiani

Quantification is the task of estimating, given a set $\sigma$ of unlabelled items and a set of classes $\mathcal{C}=\{c_{1}, \ldots, c_{|\mathcal{C}|}\}$, the prevalence (or `relative frequency') in $\sigma$ of each class $c_{i}\in \mathcal{C}$. While quantification may in principle be solved by classifying each item in $\sigma$ and counting how many such items have been labelled with $c_{i}$, it has long been shown that this `classify and count' (CC) method yields suboptimal quantification accuracy...
