# Plot classification probabilityΒΆ

Plot the classification probability for different classifiers. We use a 3 class dataset, and we classify it with a Support Vector classifier, L1 and L2 penalized logistic regression with either a One-Vs-Rest or multinomial setting, and Gaussian process classification.

The logistic regression is not a multiclass classifier out of the box. As a result it can identify only the first class.

Out:

```  classif_rate for GPC : 82.666667
classif_rate for L2 logistic (OvR) : 76.666667
classif_rate for L1 logistic : 79.333333
classif_rate for Linear SVC : 82.000000
classif_rate for L2 logistic (Multinomial) : 82.000000
```
