Hierarchical classification is a problem with applications in many areas as protein function prediction where the dates are hierarchically structured. Therefore, it is necessary the development of algorithms able to induce hierarchical classification models. This paper presents an algorithm for hierarchical classification using the global approach, called Multilabel Hierarchical Classification using a Competitive Neural Network (MHC-CNN). It was tested on some datasets from the bioinformatics field and its results are promising.
