Testing Our Classifier to Detect Narrow Helixes
To test the performance of our newly created classifier. I created a python script that runs the classifier against a set of ear samples that were not used to train the classifier. None of the positive samples that went into building our positive vector file were included. Our wonderful mentor Dr. Washington stressed to "Don't test on what you train!" doing so will greatly skew the results and not provide an accurate depiction of the classifier's quality.
