# SVM-based Classification Algorithm

(Redirected from classifier SVMs)

A SVM-based Classification Algorithm is an SVM training algorithm that is a supervised classification algorithm.

**Context:**- It can be implemented by an SVM Classification System (to solve an SVM classification task).

**Counter-Example(s):****See:**SVM Hierarchical Classification Algorithm.

- QUOTE: The support vector machine (SVM) is a widely used tool for classification. Many efficient implementations exist for fitting a two-class SVM model. The user has to supply values for the tuning parameters: the regularization cost parameter, and the kernel parameters. It seems a common practice is to use a default value for the cost parameter, often leading to the least restrictive model. In this paper we argue that the choice of the cost parameter can be critical. We then derive an algorithm that can fit the entire path of SVM solutions for every value of the cost parameter, with essentially the same computational cost as fitting one SVM model.

- QUOTE: This paper presents results of a large-scale empirical comparison of ten supervised learning algorithms using eight performance criteria. We evaluate the performance of SVMs, neural nets, logistic regression, naive bayes, memory-based learning, random forests, decision trees, bagged trees, boosted trees, and boosted stumps on eleven binary classification problems using a variety of performance metrics: accuracy, F-score, Lift, ROC Area, average precision, precision/recall break-even point, squared error, and cross-entropy.
