A common way to evaluate a multi-way classifier is a confusion matrix that plots, for each of the learned concepts, the true class of test instances against the predicted classes. Aggregate accuracy figures of the classifier are obtained by summing up the diagonal entries of the confusion matrix. However, invaluable information about the relationships amongst classes is often ignored. In this report we show various ways in which the notion of similarity amongst subsets of classes from the confusion matrix can be exploited.
