SVM: Support Vector Machine in R and Python

This tutorial completes the course material devoted to the Support Vector Machine approach (SVM).

It highlights two important dimensions of the method: the position of the support points and the definition of the decision boundaries in the representation space when we construct a linear separator; the difficulty to determine the “best” values of the parameters for a given problem.

We will use R (“e1071” package) and Python (“scikit-learn” package).

Keywords: svm, package e1071, logiciel R, logiciel Python, package scikit-learn, sklearn
