Optimal Asymptotic Sequential Importance Sampling

Project description

OASIS is a tool for evaluating binary classifiers when ground truth class labels are not immediately available, but can be obtained at some cost (e.g. by asking humans). The tool takes an unlabelled test set as input and intelligently selects items to label so as to provide a precise estimate of the classifier’s performance, whilst minimising the amount of labelling required. The underlying strategy for selecting the items to label is based on a technique called adaptive importance sampling, which is optimised for the classifier performance measure of interest. Currently, OASIS supports estimation of the weighted F-measure, which includes the F1-score, precision and recall.


See the Jupyter notebook under docs/tutorial/tutorial.ipynb:

>>> import oasis
>>> data = oasis.Data()
>>> data.read_h5('Amazon-GoogleProducts-test.h5')
>>> def oracle(idx):
>>>     return data.labels[idx]
>>> smplr = oasis.OASISSampler(alpha, data.preds, data.scores, oracle)
>>> smplr.sample_distinct(5000) #: query labels for 5000 distinct items
>>> print("Current estimate is {}.".format(smplr.estimate_[smplr.t_ - 1]))
