# COMP/INDR 421/521 ELEC 443/543 HW02: Discrimination by Regression

\$30.00

## Description

In this homework, you will implement a discrimination by regression algorithm for multiclass
classification in R, Matlab, or Python. Here are the steps you need to follow:
1. Read Section 10.8 from the textbook.
2. You are given a multivariate classification data set, which contains 195 handwritten
letters of size 20 pixels × 16 pixels (i.e., 320 pixels). These images are from five distinct
classes, namely, A, B, C, D, and E, where we have 39 data points from each class. The
figure below shows five sample figures from each class. You are given two data files:
a. hw02_data_set_images.csv: letter images,
b. hw02_data_set_labels.csv: corresponding class labels.
3. Divide the data set into two parts by assigning the first 25 images from each class to the
training set and the remaining 14 images to the test set.
4. Learn a discrimination by regression algorithm using the sigmoid function for this
multiclass classification problem. You can use the following learning parameters.
eta <- 0.01
epsilon <- 1e-3
set.seed(521)
5. Draw the objective function values throughout the iterations. Your figure should be
similar to the following figure.
6. Calculate the confusion matrix for the data points in your training set using the
discrimination rule you will develop using the estimated parameters. Your confusion
matrix should be similar to the following matrix.
y_train
y_predicted 1 2 3 4 5
1 25 0 0 0 0
2 0 25 0 0 0
3 0 0 25 0 0
4 0 0 0 25 0
5 0 0 0 0 25
7. Calculate the confusion matrix for the data points in your test set using the parametric
discrimination rule you will develop using the estimated parameters. Your confusion
matrix should be similar to the following matrix.
y_test
y_predicted 1 2 3 4 5
1 13 1 0 0 0
2 1 11 0 0 2
3 0 0 14 0 0
4 0 1 0 14 0
5 0 1 0 0 12
What to submit: You need to submit your source code in a single file (.R file if you are using R,
.m file if you are using Matlab, or .py file if you are using Python) and a short report explaining
