Support Vector Machines

Domain Knowledge

Prior Domain Knowledge   Home Barzilay and Brailovsky (1999) “An approach to constructing a kernel function which takes into account some domain knowledge about a problem and thus essentially diminishes the number of noisy parameters in high dimensional feature space is suggested.” Chapelle (2001) and Sch?o?lkopf “The choice of an SVM kernel corresponds to the …
