2.9.1. Co to jest Classifier?

A mapping from unlabeled instances to (discrete) classes. Classifiers have a form (e.g., decision tree) plus an interpretation procedure (including how to handle unknowns, etc.). Some classifiers also provide probability estimates (scores), which can be threshold to yield a discrete class decision thereby taking into account a utility function.
