Abstract

We consider classification problems in which the class labels are organized into an abstraction hierarchy in the form of a class taxonomy. We define a structured label classification problem. We explore two approaches for learning classifiers in such a setting. We also develop a class of performance measures for evaluating the resulting classifiers. We present preliminary results that demonstrate the promise of the proposed approaches.
