Understanding Support vector Machines using Python

Support Vector machines (SVM) can be used for both classification as well as regression tasks but they are mostly used in classification applications. Some of the real world applications include Face detection, Handwriting detection, Document categorisation, SPAM Filtering, image classification and protein remote homology detection. For many researchers, SVM is the first best choice for […]
