There are some domains where it may make sense to formulate a task as
one-class classification problem. E.g. looking at time series data one
might want to train a model to identify "normal" behaviour from
positive data only.

Though it is possible to come up with algorithms for this so-called
one-class classification problem*, I am not aware of any implementation
in Mahout.


* For instance see "One-Class SVMs for Document Classification" by
  Larry m. Manevits and Malik Yousef for some references and comparison.
