F1 Score is a common evaluation metric used in classification tasks to measure the model's accuracy. It considers both precision and recall, offering a balanced perspective on model performance.
F1 Score is the harmonic mean of precision and recall. Precision is the ratio of true positives to the sum of true positives and false positives, while recall is the ratio of true positives to the sum of true positives and false negatives.
The F1 Score formula is as follows:
F1 Score = 2 * (precision * recall) / (precision + recall)
F1 Score provides a single metric that combines precision and recall, allowing for a holistic evaluation of a classification model's performance.
By considering both precision and recall, F1 Score helps to identify situations where a model can correctly identify positive instances (precision) while also being able to capture all positive instances (recall).
Maximizing F1 Score indicates finding the right balance between precision and recall for a specific classification problem. It is especially useful when there is an imbalance in the class distribution.
