On the Relationship Between Binary Classification, Bipartite Ranking, and Binary Class Probability Estimation

NeurIPS 2013 Harikrishna NarasimhanShivani Agarwal

We investigate the relationship between three fundamental problems in machine learning: binary classification, bipartite ranking, and binary class probability estimation (CPE). It is known that a good binary CPE model can be used to obtain a good binary classification model (by thresholding at 0.5), and also to obtain a good bipartite ranking model (by using the CPE model directly as a ranking model); it is also known that a binary classification model does not necessarily yield a CPE model...
