The ROC curve was first developed by electrical engineers and radar engineers during World War II for detecting enemy objects in

ROC analysis since then has been used in medicine, radiology, biometrics, forecasting of natural hazards,[5] meteorology,[6] model performance assessment,[7] and other areas for many decades and is increasingly used in machine learning and data mining research.
