The theoretical analysis of multiclass classification has proved that the existing multiclass classification methods can train a classifier with high classification accuracy on the test set, when the instances are precise in the training and test sets with same distribution and enough instances can be collected in the training set. However, one limitation with multiclass classification has not been solved: how to improve the classification accuracy of multiclass classification problems when… 



Reducing Multiclass to Binary: A Unifying Approach for Margin Classifiers

A general method for combining the classifiers generated on the binary problems is proposed, and a general empirical multiclass loss bound is proved given the empirical loss of the individual binary learning algorithms.

A Kernel Fuzzy c-Means Clustering-Based Fuzzy Support Vector Machine Algorithm for Classification Problems With Outliers or Noises

A common misunderstanding of Gaussian-function-based kernel fuzzy clustering is corrected, and a kernel fuzzy c-means clustering-based fuzzy SVM algorithm (KFCM-FSVM) is developed to deal with the classification problems with outliers or noises.

Learning from Imprecise Observations: An Estimation Error Bound based on Fuzzy Random Variables

This paper proposes a more realistic problem called learning from imprecise observations (LIMO), where a classifier is trained with fuzzy observations (i.e., fuzzy vectors) based on the distribution of fuzzy random variables and proves the estimation error bound.

Nonparametric criteria for supervised classification of fuzzy data

A Transfer-Based Additive LS-SVM Classifier for Handling Missing Data

This paper solves the problem of missing data using a novel transfer learning perspective and shows that when an additive least squares support vector machine (LS-SVM) is adopted, model transfer learning can be used to enhance the classification performance on incomplete training datasets.

Rademacher Complexity Bounds for a Penalized Multiclass Semi-Supervised Algorithm

The theoretical result exhibit convergence rates extending those proposed in the literature for the binary case, and experimental results on different multi-class classification problems show empirical evidence that supports the theory.

Classification of Heterogeneous Fuzzy Data by Choquet Integral With Fuzzy-Valued Integrand

The DCIFI acts as a projection to project high-dimensional heterogeneous fuzzy data to one-dimensional crisp data to handle the classification problems involving different data forms, such as crisp data, interval values, fuzzy numbers, and linguistic variables, simultaneously.

Fuzzy clustering of fuzzy data based on robust loss functions and ordered weighted averaging

Oversampling for Imbalanced Learning Based on K-Means and SMOTE

Optimal learners for multiclass problems

A surprising result is proved: a generic optimal multiclass learner must be improper, namely, it must have the ability to output hypotheses which do not belong to the hypothesis class, even though it knows that all the labels are generated by some hypothesis from the class.
