SVM - Support vector machine

SVM (Support Vector Machine) is a supervised learning algorithm which is well adapted for high dimensional problems. We implement the John Platt's SMO (sequential minimal optimization) algorithm into Tanagra.

In this tutorial, we show how to implement SVM with TANAGRA. We compare the classifier performance with that of the lineardiscriminant analysis (LDA). The error rate is measured using the bootstrap resamppling approach.
