Bending the Curve: Improving the ROC Curve Through Error Redistribution [article]

Oran Richman, Shie Mannor
2016 arXiv   pre-print
We propose an algorithm for the derivation of optimal thresholds by redistributing the error depending on features that hold information about difficulty.  ...  Features that hold information about the "difficulty" of the data may be non-discriminative and are therefore disregarded in the classification process.  ...  and p − (x) should be estimated. All of these functions can be estimated using conventional parametric estimation methods (For example, maximizing the log likelihood).  ...

Connections between Survey Calibration Estimators and Semiparametric Models for Incomplete Data

Thomas Lumley, Pamela A. Shaw, James Y. Dai
2011 International Statistical Review
