Visualizing Losses for Binary Classification
This page hosts a Jupyter Notebook for plotting loss functions for binary classification.
The horizontal axis, z
, represents the ground truth output y*
multiplied by the classifier score f(x)
for an input x
. Since this is binary classification, y*
is either -1 or 1 and f(x)
is a scalar.
