Hierarchical classification

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hierarchical classification is a system of grouping things according to a hierarchy.[1]

In the field of machine learning, hierarchical classification is sometimes referred to as instance space decomposition,[2] which splits a complete multi-class problem into a set of smaller classification problems.
