Machine Learning & Support Vector Machines (SVM) Lecture 9 CSCSI 494
Last lecture we discussed the major topics in machine learning and an important classification algorithm entitled Support Vector Machines (SVM). Modern search engines use a combination of these fundamental techniques to find the relevance of documents w.r.t a given search query.
Papers to read: Standard SVM [Cortes and Vapnik, 1995]
We also discussed a two dimensional problem and showed how to expand a machine learning problem to infinite dimensions.
