Many classification problems have in fact an ordinal nature, i.e., the class labels are ordered. We introduce a decision rule algorithm, called RankRules, tailored for this type of problems, that is based on minimization of the rank loss. In general, the complexity of the rank loss minimization is quadratic with respect to the number of training examples… CONTINUE READING
