Confusion Matrix Report#

This notebook provides an overview for using and understanding the Confusion Matrix Report check.


What is the Confusion Matrix Report?#

The ConfusionMatrixReport produces a confusion matrix visualization which summarizes the performance of the model. The confusion matrix contains the TP (true positive), FP (false positive), TN (true negative) and FN (false negative), from which we can derive the relevant metrics, such as accuracy, precision, recall etc. (confusion matrix).

Generate data & model#

import pandas as pd
from sklearn.datasets import load_iris
from sklearn.ensemble import AdaBoostClassifier
from sklearn.model_selection import train_test_split

from deepchecks.tabular import Dataset
from deepchecks.tabular.checks import ConfusionMatrixReport

iris = load_iris(as_frame=True)
clf = AdaBoostClassifier()
frame = iris.frame
X =
y =
X_train, X_test, y_train, y_test = train_test_split(X, y, test_size=0.5, random_state=42), y_train)
ds = Dataset(pd.concat([X_test, y_test], axis=1),

Run the check#

check = ConfusionMatrixReport()
result =, clf)
Confusion Matrix Report

Define a condition#

We can define our check a condition that will validate if all the misclassified cells/samples in the confusion matrix is below a certain threshold. Using the misclassified_samples_threshold argument, we can specify what percentage of the total samples our condition should use to validate the misclassified cells.

# Let's add a condition and re-run the check:

check = ConfusionMatrixReport()
result =, clf)
