Hierarchical classification (HC) is a specialization of the well-known flat classification task. The main difference among them is that in HC examples have to be assigned to classes organized in a previously defined class hierarchy, while in traditional flat classification no class order is imposed. There are two main approaches commonly used to tackle HC: the top-down or local approach, which is classifier independent, and the big-bang or global approach, which usually is the product of a… CONTINUE READING
