Non-linear performance measures are widely used for the evaluation of learning algorithms. For example, F -measure is a commonly used performance measure for classification problems in machine learning and information retrieval community. We study the theoretical properties of a subset of non-linear performance measures called pseudo-linear performance… CONTINUE READING
