Empirical Evaluation of Resampling Procedures for Optimising SVM Hyperparameters

Tuning the regularisation and kernel hyperparameters is a vital step in optimising the generalisation performance of kernel methods, such as the support vector machine (SVM). This is most often performed by minimising a resampling/cross-validation based model selection criterion, however there … Continue reading
