Hierarchical classification is critical to knowledge management and exploration, as in gene function prediction and document categorization. In hierarchical classification, an input is classified according to a structured hierarchy. In a situation as such, the central issue is how to effectively utilize the inter-class relationship to improve the generalization performance of flat classification ignoring such dependency. In this article, we propose a novel large margin method through… CONTINUE READING
