Multiclass and multilabel learning algorithms

Reference document on Scikit-learn:
  • Multiclass classification means a classification task with more than two classes; e.g., classify a set of images of fruits which may be oranges, apples, or pears. Multiclass classification makes the assumption that each sample is assigned to one and only one label: a fruit can be either an apple or a pear but not both at the same time.

  • Multilabel classification assigns to each sample a set of target labels. This can be thought as predicting properties of a data-point that are not mutually exclusive, such as topics that are relevant for a document. A text might be about any of religion, politics, finance or education at the same time or none of these.

Below is a summary of the classifiers supported by scikit-learn grouped by strategy; you don’t need the meta-estimators in this class if you’re using one of these, unless you want custom multiclass behavior:

Some estimators also support multioutput-multiclass classification tasks Decision TreesRandom ForestsNearest Neighbors.

Updated for Python 3, scikit-learn 0.18.1 using MultiLabelBinarizer as suggested
from sklearn.preprocessing import MultiLabelBinarizer
mlb = MultiLabelBinarizer()
Y = mlb.fit_transform(y_train_text)
Example using MultipleOutputClassifier with Random Forest
from sklearn.multioutput import MultiOutputClassifier
from sklearn.ensemble import RandomForestClassifier
#X shape: [n_samples, n_features]
#y shape: [n_samples, n_classes] 
forest = RandomForestClassifier(n_estimators=100, random_state=1)
multi_target_forest = MultiOutputClassifier(forest, n_jobs=-1), Y).predict(X)
