The classification of patterns into naturally ordered labels is referred to as ordinal regression or ordinal classification. Usually, this classification setting is by nature highly imbalanced, because there are classes in the problem that are a priori more probable than others. Although standard over-sampling methods can improve the classification of(More)
The classification of patterns into naturally ordered labels is referred to as ordinal regression. This paper proposes an ensemble methodology specifically adapted to this type of problem, which is based on computing different classification tasks through the formulation of different order hypotheses. Every single model is trained in order to distinguish(More)
The imbalanced nature of some real-world data is one of the current challenges for machine learning researchers. One common approach oversamples the minority class through convex combination of its patterns. We explore the general idea of synthetic oversampling in the feature space induced by a kernel function (as opposed to input space). If the kernel(More)
