Support Vector Machines (SVM) Fundamentals Part-III

In the second post Support Vector Machines (SVM) Fundamentals Part-II  , I discussed about margin maximization, support planes and support vectors. Lets have a quick recap: In a basic sense SVM is a two class classifier. it learns from the data lying in support planes. Data lying on support planes are called support vectors. Support Vector Machine … More Support Vector Machines (SVM) Fundamentals Part-III

Support Vector Machines (SVM) Fundamentals Part-II

Hi, In the last post Support Vector Machines (SVM) Fundamentals Part-I , I talked about basic building blocks of support vector machines (SVM), lets just recap some important points: equation of  n-dimensional hyperplane can be written asWT X  =C, where  W=[w1,w2,…….wn] and X=[X1,X2,……Xn] hyperplane separates the space into two half spaces (positive half space and negative half space).
