Introduction Data classification is a very important task in machine learning. Support Vector Machines (SVMs) are widely applied in the field of pattern classifications and nonlinear regressions. The original form of the SVM algorithm was introduced by Vladimir N. Vapnik and Alexey Ya. Chervonenkis in 1963. Since then, SVMs have been transformed tremendously to be used […]
