Sparse probabilistic classifiers


The scores returned by support vector machines are often used as a confidence measures in the classification of new examples. However, there is no theoretical argument sustaining this practice. Thus, when classification uncertainty has to be assessed, it is safer to resort to classifiers estimating conditional probabilities of class labels. Here, we focus… (More)
