Abstract

In the multi-label classification issue, some implicit constraints and dependencies are always existed among labels. Exploring the correlation information among different labels is important for many applications. It not only can enhance the classifier performance but also can help to interpret the classification results for some specific applications. This paper presents an improved multi-label classification method based on local label constraints and classifier chains for solving multi-label tasks with large number of labels. Firstly, in order to exploit local label constraints in multi-label problem with large number of labels, clustering approach is utilized to segment training label set into several subsets. Secondly, for each label subset, local tree-structure constraints among different labels are mined based on mutual information metric. Thirdly, based on the mined local tree-structure label constraints, a variant of classifier chain strategy is implemented to enhance the multi-label learning system. Experiment results on five multi-label benchmark datasets show that the proposed method is a competitive approach for solving multi-label classification tasks with large number of labels.
