How to create a confusion matrix for clustering? For this how can I get predicted class and actual class? And how can I get those TP, TN, FP and FN values from it? I am confused please help me.
Thanks in advance.

I used confusionmat() also. How can I get the TP, TN, FP, FN values using a MatLab?

Lets use the cifar10 demo included in Matlab for your question
close all
[m,order] = confusionmat(trueLabels,predictedLabels);
cm = confusionchart(m,order);
Please look at the confusionchart and consider the following for one particular class c,
  • The diagonal element of class c is the amount of TP
  • Everything inside the predicted class column except the diagonal element is falsely predicted as class c --> FP
  • Everything inside the true class row except the diagonal element is of class c but not predicted as c --> FN
  • Every other diagonal element except the diagonal element of class c itself is TN.
Now, we can put this easily in in code by summing up row, column and diagonal elements and substracting the TP. Lets pick a class, e.g. c=2 "automobile", and calculate TP, FP, FN, TN for that class
c = 2;
TP = cm.NormalizedValues(c,c) % true class is c and predicted as c
FP = sum(cm.NormalizedValues(:,c))-TP % predicted as c, true class is not c
FN = sum(cm.NormalizedValues(c,:))-TP % true class is c, not predicted as c
TN = sum(diag(cm.NormalizedValues))-TP % true class is not c, not predicted as c

Sir, I tried this in a different data set I got some errors like:
" Index in position 1 exceeds array bounds (must not exceed 2).
Error in shpa (line 68)
TP = cm.NormalizedValues(c,c) ; "
[idx, corepts] = dbscan(data,epsilon,minpts);
nearEnough = 0.02;
x = data(:,1);
y = data(:,2);
indexesToKeep = false(1, length(x));
for k = 1 : length(x)
distances = sqrt((x(k) - x).^2 + (y(k) - y).^2);
if sum(distances > nearEnough) >= 5
indexesToKeep(k) = true;
x = x(indexesToKeep);
y = y(indexesToKeep);
P=[x y];
dist2 = (data(:,1) - P(:,1).').^2 + (data(:,2) - P(:,2).').^2;
[~,id] = mink(distances,20,1);
clusters = data(id);
maximum_num_clusters = 7;
Z = linkage(clusters, 'average');
id= cluster(Z, 'Maxclust', maximum_num_clusters);
X= -ones(748,1);
B=[-ones(length(I) - length(id),1);id];
% load('Cifar10Labels.mat','trueLabels','predictedLabels');
[m,order] = confusionmat(I,idx);
cm = confusionchart(m,order);
c = 3;
TP = cm.NormalizedValues(c,c) ;
FP = sum(cm.NormalizedValues(:,c))-TP ;
FN = sum(cm.NormalizedValues(c,:))-TP ;
TN = sum(diag(cm.NormalizedValues))-TP;
How can I get this? Please help me.
