What's a range of good F1 scores?

I have watched a lot of videos on machine learning and in terms of F1 scores, all are different. One video says that an F1 score of .8 is bad, but another says an F1 score of .4 is excellent. What's ...

Should I balance the classifier train/test set, if metrics is Precision/Recall (F1 score)?

I want to train a classifier on an unbalanced data set. Proportions of classes C0/C1 are 65/35. Importantly, the success metrics is F1_score. In other words, the proper classification of class 1 (...

How to verify that one ML-classifier is better then the other using the same train and test data set without cross-validation?

I have compared 5 methods (ML classifiers) on the same data set. These methods are 5 different types of neural networks. Each is trained on the training set and evaluated with precision, recall and f1-...

F1 score macro-average

In this question I'll differentiate by using lower-case for class-wise scores, e.g. prec, rec, f1, which would be vectors, and the aggregate macro-average Prec, Rec, F1. My formulae below are written ...

Issue with training on classification metrics other than accuracy (using R and caret)

I have a binary classification problem with two classes 0 and 1. For training an XGBoost classification model, I apply a balanced data set (50% 0's, 50% 1's). In reality, 1's are much more abundant ...

what is the correct interpretation of precision, recall and F1 in R?

Im using R and i had some cases of NAs for F1 when there is NA for precision and 0 for recall and also when both are 0, i also noticed that with both 0 i had f1 as Nan. So im not sure how to interpret ...

Why does the 'weighted' f1-score result in a score not between precision and recall?

On the F1 score sklearn page there's a section that explains each of the options for the average parameter. Under the weighted option, it says: "it can result in an F-score that is not between ...
