    摘 要】In contrast to the classical binary classification paradigm that minimizes the overall classification error, the Neyman-Pearson (NP) paradigm seeks classifiers with a minimal type II error and a constrained type I error under a user-specified level, addressing asymmetric type I/II error priorities. NP paradigm is appropriate in applications such as cancer diagnosis, where a type I error (i.e., misdiagnosing a cancer patient as healthy) has more severe consequences than a type II error (i.e., misdiagnosing a healthy patient with cancer). This talk reviews the speaker's exisitng and current work on NP classification.
