Binary classification measure defined as $$ \frac{\mathrm{TP} \cdot \mathrm{TN} - \mathrm{FP} \cdot \mathrm{FN}}{\sqrt{(\mathrm{TP} + \mathrm{FP}) (\mathrm{TP} + \mathrm{FN}) (\mathrm{TN} + \mathrm{FP}) (\mathrm{TN} + \mathrm{FN})}}. $$

Note

The score function calls mlr3measures::mcc() from package mlr3measures.

If the measure is undefined for the input, NaN is returned. This can be customized by setting the field na_value.

Dictionary

This Measure can be instantiated via the dictionary mlr_measures or with the associated sugar function msr():

mlr_measures$get("mcc")
msr("mcc")
