Classification problems are sometimes divided into binary (yes or no) and multi-category problems (animal, vegetable, or mineral). Classifiers are ubiquitous in data science. The world around is full of classifiers. Classifiers help in identifying customers who may churn. Classifiers help in predicting whether it will rain or not. Classifiers help in preventing spam e-mails. If the targets are designed to be binary (two-class classification) then a binary classifier is used, the target will only take a 0 or 1 value.
