We address the task of hierarchical multi-label classification (HMC). HMC is a task of structured output prediction where the classes are organized into a hierarchy and an instance may belong to multiple classes. In many problems, such as gene function prediction or prediction of ecological community structure, classes inherently follow these constraints. The potential for application of HMC was recognized by many researchers and several such methods were proposed and demonstrated to achieve… CONTINUE READING
