Day #31 - Support Vector Machines

  • Support Vector Machines
  • Widest Street approach separating +ve and -ve classes, Separations as wide as possible
  • SVM works on classifying only two classes
  • Hard SVM (Strictly linearly separable)
  • Soft SVM (Minimize how they fall on another side, Constant C to minimize how much allow one point go on another side)
  • Kernel Functions perform transformation of data
  • Using Kernel function we simulate idea of finding linear separator 
  • Kernels take data into higher dimensional space
  • Other Key concepts discussed (Lagrange Multipliers, Quadratic Optimization problem)
  • Lagrangian constraint transform from 1D to 2D data
  • SVM (Linear way of approximation)
  • Types of Kernels - Polynomial Kernel, Radial Basis Function Kernel, Sigmoid Kernel
