Q1. What are you studing ?

During my PhD study, I specialized in the field of multi-label classification. In machine learning, multi-label classification refers to classifying an instance with multiple labels simutaneously. My objective is to discover the relationship between the features and labels hiding in a large amount of data, and finally be able to make predictions on unseen test instances.
