Entropy_triangle is a function that implements two tools to analyze the behavior of multiple-class, or multi-class, classifiers by means of entropic measures on their confusion matrix or contingency table. First we obtain a balance equation on the entropies that captures interesting properties of the classifier. Second, by normalizing this balance equation we first obtain a 2-simplex in a three-dimensional entropy space and then the de Finetti entropy diagram or entropy triangle.

In version 2.0 the entropy triangle is added a color bar to plot another variable, e.g. accuracy, against mutual information, variation of information of entropy decrement. We have also added a script (compareETs) to visualize your own ETs and to print the NIT and EMA vs. other measures in latex-ready format.

The Normalized Information Transfer (NIT) rate, and the Entropy-Modified Accuracy (EMA) are improvements to accuracy to measure how good your multiclass classifiers are whose rationale and definition can be found in:
