Perform "One vs. Rest" classification by (weighted) majority vote prediction from classification Predictions. This works in combination with PipeOpOVRSplit.

Weights can be set as a parameter; if none are provided, defaults to equal weights for each prediction.

Always returns a "prob" prediction, regardless of the incoming Learner's $predict_type. The label of the class with the highest predicted probability is selected as the "response" prediction.

Missing values during prediction are treated as each class label being equally likely.

This PipeOp uses a Multiplicity input, which is created by PipeOpOVRSplit and causes PipeOps on the way to this PipeOp to be called once for each individual binary Task.

Note that Multiplicity is currently an experimental features and the implementation or UI may change.


R6Class inheriting from PipeOpEnsemble/PipeOp.


PipeOpOVRUnite$new(id = "ovrunite", param_vals = list())
  • id :: character(1)
    Identifier of the resulting object, default "ovrunite".

  • param_vals :: named list
    List of hyperparameter settings, overwriting the hyperparameter settings that would otherwise be set during construction. Default list().

Input and Output Channels

Input and output channels are inherited from PipeOpEnsemble. Instead of a Prediction, a PredictionClassif is used as input and output during prediction and PipeOpEnsemble's collect parameter is initialized with TRUE to allow for collecting a Multiplicity input.


The $state is left empty (list()).


The parameters are the parameters inherited from the PipeOpEnsemble.


Inherits from PipeOpEnsemble by implementing the private$.predict() method.

Should be used in combination with PipeOpOVRSplit.
