Question

F1 Measure - What is the difference between accuracy and F1?

Answer

Accuracy can be used when the class distribution is similar while F1-score is a better metric when there are imbalanced classes as in the above case. In most real-life classification problems, imbalanced class distribution exists and thus F1-score is a better metric to evaluate our model on.
