# Binary Imbalanced Learning A practical Approach in R

Introduction and motivation Binary classification problem is arguably one of the simplest and most straightforward problems in Machine Learning. Usually we want to learn a model trying to predict whether some instance belongs to a class or not. It has many practical applications ranging from email spam detection to medical testing (determine if a patient has a certain disease or not). Slightly more formally, the goal of binary classification is to learn a function f(x) that map x (a vector of features for an instance/example) to a predicted binary outcome ŷ (0 or 1). Most classification algorithms, such as logistic regression, Naive Bayes and decision trees, … Continue reading Binary Imbalanced Learning A practical Approach in R
