Surgery on ROC Plots

This note is a little break from our model homotopy series.

I have a neat example where one combines two classifiers to get a better classifier using a method I am calling “ROC surgery.” In ROC surgery we look at multiple ROC plots and decide we want to cut out a section from one the plots for use. It is a sensor fusion method to try and combine the best parts of two classifiers.

Please check it out.
