nlp-scores-0.4.0: Scoring functions commonly used for evaluation in NLP and IR

Safe HaskellSafe-Infered




Scoring functions commonly used for evaluation of NLP systems. Most functions in this module work on sequences which are instances of Foldable, but some take a precomputed table of Counts. This will give a speedup if you want to compute multiple scores on the same data. For example to compute the Mutual Information, Variation of Information and the Adjusted Rand Index on the same pair of clusterings:

>>> let cs = counts $ zip "abcabc" "abaaba"
>>> mapM_ (print . ($ cs)) [mi, ari, vi]
>>> 0.9182958340544894
>>> 0.4444444444444445
>>> 0.6666666666666663


Scores for classification and ranking

accuracy :: (Eq a, Fractional c, Foldable t) => t a -> t a -> cSource

Accuracy: the proportion of elements in the first sequence equal to elements at corresponding positions in second sequence. Sequences should be of equal lengths.

recipRank :: (Eq a, Fractional b, Foldable t) => a -> t a -> bSource

Reciprocal rank: the reciprocal of the rank at which the first arguments occurs in the sequence given as the second argument.

Scores for clustering

ari :: (Ord a, Ord b) => Counts a b -> DoubleSource

mi :: (Ord a, Ord b) => Counts a b -> DoubleSource

Mutual information: MI(X,Y) = H(X) - H(X|Y) = H(Y) - H(Y|X). Also known as information gain.

vi :: (Ord a, Ord b) => Counts a b -> DoubleSource

Variation of information: VI(X,Y) = H(X) + H(Y) - 2 MI(X,Y)
