Project Work 4: Due Thursday
February 20, 2004
Each group needs to email me the following:
- Use a
version of the matlab function Evaluate_Probabilistic_Classifier(Y_tst,Y_hat,p_hat,w) (you can download it from http://www.cs.colorado.edu/~grudic/teaching/CSCI4202_2004/Project/Evaluate_Probabilistic_Classifier.m)
to evaluate Platt’s algorithm on the three datasets AND the toy data that
you have been using. You will email me Y_tst,Y_hat,p_hat for each dataset, as well as a
figure of the plot of actual_prob_est verses predicted_prob (see matlab file for details). If you
are using Matlab, you can of course just use my Evaluate_Probabilistic_Classifier(Y_tst,Y_hat,p_hat,w), but make sure its bug free! If
you have problems running these tests on your machines, email all of our executables
and tell me how to run it on my XP PC.
me your final implementation of Platt’s algorithm and code that you used
to run all your experiments.
I will give each group a final mark for Platt’s algorithm
evaluation part of the Project by Wednesday Feb. 25.
