Methods to rank examples in standard (multi-class) classification datasets by cleanlab's `label quality score`.
Except for :py:func:`order_label_issues <cleanlab.rank.order_label_issues>`, which operates only on the subset of the data identified
as potential label issues/errors, the methods in this module can be used on whichever subset
of the dataset you choose (including the entire dataset) and provide a `label quality score` for
every example. You can then do something like: ``np.argsort(label_quality_score)`` to obtain ranked
indices of individual datapoints based on their quality.
Note: multi-label classification is not supported by most methods in this module,
each example must be labeled as belonging to a single class, e.g. format: ``labels = np.ndarray([1,0,2,1,1,0...])``.
For multi-label classification, instead see :py:func:`multilabel_classification.get_label_quality_scores <cleanlab.multilabel_classification.get_label_quality_scores>`.
Note: Label quality scores are most accurate when they are computed based on out-of-sample `pred_probs` from your model.
To obtain out-of-sample predicted probabilities for every datapoint in your dataset, you can use :ref:`cross-validation <pred_probs_cross_val>`. This is encouraged to get better results.

"""Returns a label quality score for each datapoint.
This is a function to compute label quality scores for standard (multi-class) classification datasets,
where lower scores indicate labels less likely to be correct.
Score is between 0 and 1.
1 - clean label (given label is likely correct).
0 - dirty label (given label is likely incorrect).
Parameters
----------
labels : np.ndarray
A discrete vector of noisy labels, i.e. some labels may be erroneous.
*Format requirements*: for dataset with K classes, labels must be in 0, 1, ..., K-1.
Note: multi-label classification is not supported by this method, each example must belong to a single class, e.g. format: ``labels = np.ndarray([1,0,2,1,1,0...])``.
pred_probs : np.ndarray, optional
An array of shape ``(N, K)`` of model-predicted probabilities,
``P(label=k|x)``. Each row of this matrix corresponds
to an example `x` and contains the model-predicted probabilities that
`x` belongs to each possible class, for each of the K classes. The
columns must be ordered such that these probabilities correspond to
class 0, 1, ..., K-1.
**Note**: Returned label issues are most accurate when they are computed based on out-of-sample `pred_probs` from your model.
To obtain out-of-sample predicted probabilities for every datapoint in your dataset, you can use :ref:`cross-validation <pred_probs_cross_val>`.
This is encouraged to get better results.
method : {"self_confidence", "normalized_margin", "confidence_weighted_entropy"}, default="self_confidence"
Label quality scoring method.
Letting ``k = labels[i]`` and ``P = pred_probs[i]`` denote the given label and predicted class-probabilities
for datapoint *i*, its score can either be:
- ``'normalized_margin'``: ``P[k] - max_{k' != k}[ P[k'] ]``
- ``'self_confidence'``: ``P[k]``
- ``'confidence_weighted_entropy'``: ``entropy(P) / self_confidence``
Note: the actual label quality scores returned by this method
may be transformed versions of the above, in order to ensure
their values lie between 0-1 with lower values indicating more likely mislabeled data.
Let ``C = {0, 1, ..., K-1}`` be the set of classes specified for our classification task.
The `normalized_margin` score works better for identifying class conditional label errors,
i.e. examples for which another label in ``C`` is appropriate but the given label is not.
The `self_confidence` score works better for identifying alternative label issues
corresponding to bad examples that are: not from any of the classes in ``C``,
well-described by 2 or more labels in ``C``,
or generally just out-of-distribution (i.e. anomalous outliers).
adjust_pred_probs : bool, optional
Account for class imbalance in the label-quality scoring by adjusting predicted probabilities
via subtraction of class confident thresholds and renormalization.
Set this to ``True`` if you prefer to account for class-imbalance.

This is a function to compute label-quality scores for classification datasets,

Letting ``k`` denote the given label for a datapoint, the margin is
``(p(label = k) - max(p(label != k)))``, i.e. the probability
of the given label minus the probability of the argmax label that is not
the given label (``margin = prob_label - max_prob_not_label``).
This gives you an idea of how likely an example is BOTH its given label AND not another label,
and therefore, scores its likelihood of being a good label or a label error.
The normalized margin is simply a transformed version of the margin,
