Support Vector Machines are one of the most popular and widely used supervised machine learning algorithms. SVM offers very high accuracy compared to other classifiers such as logistic regression, and decision trees. SVM is known for its kernel trick to handle nonlinear input space. It is used in a variety of applications such as face detection, intrusion detection, classification of emails, news articles, and web pages, classification of genes, and handwriting recognition.
SVM isan exciting algorithm and the concepts are relatively simple. SVM classifier separates data points using a hyperplane with the largest amount of margin. Thats why an SVM classifier is also known as a discriminative classifier. SVM finds an optimal hyperplane which helps in classifying new data points.
Generally, Support Vector Machines considered to be a classification approach but, it can be employed in both types of classification and regression problems. It can easily handle multiple continuous and categorical variables. SVM constructs hyperplane in multidimensional space to separate different classes. SVM generates optimal hyperplane in an iterative manner, which is used to minimize an error. The core idea of SVM is to find a maximum marginal hyperplane(MMH) that best divides the dataset into classes.
Support vectors are the data points, which are closest to the hyperplane. These points will define the separating line better by calculating margins. These points are more relevant to the construction of the classifier.
A margin is a gap between the two lines on the closest class points. This is calculated as the perpendicular distance from the line to support vectors or closest points. If the margin is larger in between the classes than it is considered as good margin otherwise it is a bad margin.
The main objective is to segregate the given dataset in the best possible way. The distance between the nearest points is known as the margin. The objective is to select a hyperplane with the maximum possible margin between support vectors in the given dataset. SVM searches for the maximum marginal hyperplane in the following steps:
In such a situation, SVM uses a kernel trick to transform the input space to a higher dimensional space as shown on the right. The data points are plotted on the x-axis and z-axis (Z is the squared sum of both x and y: z=x=y). Now you can easily segregate these points using linear separation.
The SVM algorithm is implemented in practice using a kernel. A kernel transforms an input data space into the required form. SVM uses a technique called the kernel trick. Here, the kernel takes a low-dimensional input space and transforms it into a higher-dimensional space. In other words, you can say that it converts nonseparable problems to separable problems by adding more dimension to it. It is most useful in a non-linear separation problem. Kernel trick helps us to build a more accurate classifier.
Here gamma is a parameter, which ranges from 0 to 1. A higher value of gamma will perfectly fit the training dataset, which causes over-fitting. Gamma=0.1 is considered to be a good default value. The value of gamma needs to be manually specified in the learning algorithm.
In the model the building part, you can use the cancer dataset, which is a very famous multi-class classification problem. This dataset is computed from a digitized image of a fine needle aspirate (FNA) of a breast mass. They describe the characteristics of the cell nuclei present in the image.
The dataset comprises 30 features (mean radius, mean texture, mean perimeter, mean area, mean smoothness, mean compactness, mean concavity, mean concave points, mean symmetry, mean fractal dimension, radius error, texture error, perimeter error, area error, smoothness error, compactness error, concavity error, concave points error, symmetry error, fractal dimension error, worst radius, worst texture, worst perimeter, worst area, worst smoothness, worst compactness, worst concavity, worst concave points, worst symmetry, and worst fractal dimension) and a target (a type of cancer).
This data has two types of cancer classes: malignant (harmful) and benign (not harmful). Here, you can build a model to classify the type of cancer. The dataset is available in the scikit-learn library or you can also download it from the UCI Machine Learning Library.
Lets split dataset by using function train_test_split(). you need to pass basically 3 parameters features, target, and test_set size. Additionally, you can use random_state to select records randomly.
SVM Classifiers offer good accuracy and perform faster prediction compared to the Nave Bayes algorithm. They also use less memory because they use a subset of training points in the decision phase. SVM works well with a clear margin of separation and with high dimensional space.
SVM is not suitable for large datasets because of its high training time and also it takes more time in training compared to Nave Bayes. It works poorly with overlapping classes and also sensitive to the type of kernel used.

A computer program is said to learn from experience E with respect to some task T and some performance measure P, if its performance on T, as measured by P, improves with experience E. Tom Mitchell, 1997
For example, your spam filter is a machine learning program that can learn to flag spam after being given examples of spam emails that are flagged by users,and examples of regular non-spam (also called ham) emails. The examples the system uses to learn are called the training set. In this case, the task (T) is to flag spam for new emails, the experience (E)is the training data, and the performance measure (P) needs to be defined. For example, you can use the ratio of correctly classified emails as P. This particular performance measure is called accuracy and it is often used in classification tasks as it is a supervised learning approach.
In supervised learning, algorithms learn from labeled data. After understanding the data, the algorithm determines which label should be given to new data by associating patterns to the unlabeled new data.
Logistic regression is kind of like linear regression, but is used when the dependent variable is not a number but something else (e.g., a "yes/no" response). It'scalled regression but performs classification based on the regression and it classifies the dependent variable into either of the classes.
Logistic regression is used for prediction of output which is binary, as stated above. For example, if a credit card company builds a model to decide whetheror not to issue a credit card to a customer, it will model for whether the customer is going to default or not default on theircard.
K-NN algorithm is one of the simplest classification algorithms and it is used to identify the data points that are separated into several classes to predict the classification of a new sample point. K-NN is anon-parametric,lazy learning algorithm. It classifies new cases based on a similarity measure (i.e.,distance functions).
Support vector is used for both regression and classification. It is based on the concept of decision planes that define decision boundaries. A decision plane (hyperplane) is one that separates between a set of objects having different class memberships.
The RBF kernel SVM decision region is actually also a linear decision region. What RBF kernel SVM actually does is create non-linear combinations of features to uplift the samples onto a higher-dimensional feature space where a linear decision boundary can be used to separate classes.
The naive Bayes classifier is based on Bayes theorem with the independence assumptions between predictors (i.e., it assumes the presence of a feature in a class is unrelated to any other feature). Even if these features depend on each other, or upon the existence of the other features, all of these properties independently. Thus, the name naive Bayes.
Multinomial, Bernoulli naive Bayes are the other models used in calculating probabilities. Thus, a naive Bayes model is easy to build, with no complicated iterative parameter estimation, which makes it particularly useful for very large datasets.
Decision tree builds classification or regression models in the form of a tree structure. It breaks down a dataset into smaller and smaller subsets while at the same time an associated decision tree is incrementally developed. The final result is a tree withdecision nodesandleaf nodes. It follows Iterative Dichotomiser 3(ID3) algorithm structure for determining the split.
Intuitively, it tells us about the predictability of a certain event. Entropy calculates the homogeneity of a sample. If the sample is completely homogeneous the entropy is zero, and if the sample is equally divided it has an entropy of one.
Information gain measures the relative change in entropy with respect to the independent attribute. It tries to estimate the information contained by each attribute. Constructing a decision tree is all about finding the attribute that returns the highest information gain (i.e., the most homogeneous branches).
An ensemble model is ateam of models. Technically, ensemble models comprise several supervised learning models that are individually trained and the results merged in various ways to achieve the final prediction. This result has higher predictive power than the results of any of its constituting learning algorithms independently.
Random forest classifier is an ensemble algorithm based on bagging i.e bootstrap aggregation. Ensemble methodscombines more than one algorithm of the same or different kind for classifying objects (i.e., an ensemble of SVM, naive Bayes or decision trees, for example.)
Deep decision trees may suffer from overfitting, but random forests prevent overfitting by creating trees on random subsets. The main reason is that it takes the average of all the predictions, which cancels out the biases.
Random forest adds additional randomness to the model while growing the trees. Instead of searching for the most important feature while splitting a node, it searches for the best feature among a random subset of features. This results in a wide diversity that generally results in a better model.
Gradient boosting classifier is a boosting ensemble method. Boosting is a way to combine (ensemble) weak learners, primarily to reduce prediction bias. Instead of creating a pool of predictors, as in bagging, boosting produces a cascade of them, where each output is the input for the following learner. Typically, in a bagging algorithm trees are grown in parallel to get the average prediction across all trees, where each tree is built on a sample of original data. Gradient boosting, on the other hand, takes a sequential approach to obtaining predictions instead of parallelizing the tree building process. In gradient boosting, each decision tree predicts the error of the previous decision treetherebyboosting(improving) the error (gradient).
A confusion matrix is a table that is often used to describe the performance of a classification model on a set of test data for which the true values are known. It is a table with four different combinations of predicted and actual values in the case for a binary classifier.
The terms false positive and false negative are used in determining how well the model is predicting with respect to classification. A false positiveis an outcome where the modelincorrectlypredicts thepositiveclass. And afalse negativeis an outcome where the modelincorrectlypredicts thenegative class. The more values in main diagonal, the better the model, whereas the other diagonal gives the worst result for classification.
An example in which the model mistakenly predicted thepositive class. For example, the model inferred that a particular email message was spam (the positive class), but that email message was actually not spam. Its like a warning sign that the mistake should be rectified as its not much of a serious concern compared to false negative.
An example in which the model mistakenly predicted thenegative class. For example, the model inferred that a particular email message was not spam (the negative class), but that email message actually was spam. Its like adangersign that the mistake should be rectified early as its more serious than a false positive.
This picture perfectly easily illustrates the above metrics. The mans test results are a false positive since a man cannot be pregnant. The woman's test results are a false negative because she's clearly pregnant.
Accuracy alone doesnt tell the full story when working with a class-imbalanced data set, where there is a significant disparity between the number of positive and negative labels. Precision and recall are better metrics for evaluating class-imbalanced problems.
It is often convenient to combine precision and recall into a single metric called the F-1 score, particularly if you need a simple way to compare two classifiers. The F-1 score is the harmonic mean of precision and recall.
The regular mean treats all values equally, while the harmonic mean gives much more weight to low values thereby punishing the extreme values more. As a result, the classifier will only get a high F-1 score if both recall and precision are high.
ROC curve is an important classification evaluation metric. It tells us how well the model has accurately predicted. The ROC curve shows the sensitivity of the classifier by plotting the rate of true positives to the rate of false positives. If the classifier is outstanding, the true positive rate will increase, and the area under the curve will be close to one. If the classifier is similar to random guessing, the true positive rate will increase linearly with the false positive rate. The better the AUC measure, the better the model.
The CAP of a model represents the cumulative number of positive outcomes along they-axis versus the corresponding cumulative number of a classifying parameters along thex-axis. The CAP is distinct from the receiver operating characteristic (ROC), which plots the true-positive rate against the false-positive rate. CAP curve is rarely used as compared to ROC curve.
Consider a model that predicts whether a customer will purchase a product. If a customer is selected at random, there is a 50% chance they will buy the product. The cumulative number elements for which the customer buys would rise linearly toward a maximum value corresponding to the total number of customers. This distribution is called the random CAP. Its the blue line in the above diagram. A perfect prediction, on the other hand, determines exactly which customer will buy the product, such that the maximum customer buying the property will be reached with a minimum number of customer selection among the elements. This produces a steep line on the CAP curve that stays flat once the maximum is reached, which is the perfect CAP. It's also called the ideal line and is the grey line in the figure above.

Species potential distribution modelling consists of building a representation of the fundamental ecological requirements of a species from biotic and abiotic conditions where the species is known to occur. Such models can be valuable tools to understand the biogeography of species and to support the prediction of its presence/absence considering a particular environment scenario. This paper investigates the use of different supervised machine learning techniques to model the potential distribution of 35 plant species from Latin America. Each technique was able to extract a different representation of the relations between the environmental conditions and the distribution profile of the species. The experimental results highlight the good performance of random trees classifiers, indicating this particular technique as a promising candidate for modelling species potential distribution.
We employ Machine Learning techniques in species potential distribution modelling. The distribution of 35 species from Latin America was modelled by classifiers. The best performance in potential distribution modeling was achieved by random trees.
Chest-X ray (CXR) radiography can be used as a first-line triage process for non-COVID-19 patients with pneumonia. However, the similarity between features of CXR images of COVID-19 and pneumonia caused by other infections makes the differential diagnosis by radiologists challenging. We hypothesized that machine learning-based classifiers can reliably distinguish the CXR images of COVID-19 patients from other forms of pneumonia. We used a dimensionality reduction method to generate a set of optimal features of CXR images to build an efficient machine learning classifier that can distinguish COVID-19 cases from non-COVID-19 cases with high accuracy and sensitivity. By using global features of the whole CXR images, we successfully implemented our classifier using a relatively small dataset of CXR images. We propose that our COVID-Classifier can be used in conjunction with other tests for optimal allocation of hospital resources by rapid triage of non-COVID-19 cases.
Computed tomography (CT), lung ultrasound (LUS), and Chest-X ray (CXR) radiography are among the most commonly used imaging modalities to identify COVID-19 infections1,2,3. Compared to other modalities, chest X-ray radiography is a low-cost, easy-to-operate, and low radiation dose clinical screening method1,2,3. CXR radiography is one of the most commonly used and accessible methods for rapidly examining lung conditions4. CXR images are almost immediately available for analysis by radiologists. CXR radiography's availability made it one of the first imaging modalities to be used during the recent COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, the rapid CXR turnaround was used by the radiology departments in Italy and the U.K. to triage non-COVID-19 patients with pneumonia to allocate hospital resources efficiently2. However, there are many common features between medical pneumonia and COVID-19 images caused by other viral infections such as common flu (Influenzas A)5. This similarity makes a differential diagnosis of COVID-19 cases by expert radiologists challenging5,6. A reliable automated algorithm for theclassification of COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 CXR images can speed up the triage process of non-COVID-19 cases and maximize the allocation of hospital resources to COVID-19 cases.
Machine learning (ML) based methods have shown unprecedented success in the reliable analysis of medical images7,8,9,10,11. ML-based approaches are scalable, automatable, and easy to implement in clinical settings12,13. A common application of ML-based image analysis is the classification of images with highly similar features. This approach relies on the segmentation of image region of interest, identification of effective image features extracted from the segmented area in the spatial or frequency domain, and development of an optimal machine learning-based classification method to accurately assign image samples into target classes14. Recently, several ML-based methods for the diagnosis of COVID-19 medical images has been proposed1,2,3,15. Wang et al.3 applied a pre-trained deep learning model called DenseNet 121 to CT images aiming to classify COVID-19 imaging tests into positive and negative categories leading to 81.24% accuracy. Also, Roy et al.2 studied the application of deep learning models to analyze COVID-19 infections in a small dataset of lung ultrasonography(LUS) images (only 11 patients). Zhang et al.15 proposed the application of the lung-lesion segmentation in CT images a ResNet-18 classifier model for three classes of COVID-19, pneumonia, and normal, generating an accuracy of 92.49%.
Here, we hypothesized that CXR images of COVID-19 patients can be reliably distinguished from other forms of pneumonia using an ML-based classifier. We used a dimensionality reduction approach to generate a model with an optimized set of synthetic features that can distinguish COVID-19 images with an accuracy of 94% from non-COVID-19 cases. A distinct feature of our model is the identification and extraction of features from the whole CXR image without any segmentation process on chest lesions. This new quantitative marker not only enables us to avoid segmentation errors but also reduces the computational cost of our final model. Our study provides strong proof of concept that simple ML-based classification can be efficiently implemented as an adjunct to other tests to facilitate differential diagnosis of CXR images of COVID-19 patients. More broadly, we think that our approach can be easily implemented in any future viral outbreak for the rapid classification of CXR images.
Identification of optimal features of the CXR images can decrease the feature space of ML models by generating key correlated synthetic features and removing less important features. These synthetic features perform more reliably in classification tasks while reducing the size of the ML models. Importantly, a more robust ML classifier can be generated by decreasing the ratio between the number of image features and the number of training data cases per class. We initially extracted 252 features from the whole CXR image without involving lesion segmentation (Fig.1A and Supplementary Figure1) to finally generate a feature pool from 420 CXR images (Fig.1B). We hypothesized that we can use a feature analysis scheme to find an optimal number of features and reduce the size of the feature space. Figure1C shows the pairwise feature association by Pearson correlation coefficients matrix obtained from 252 features. An analysis of the initial feature pool's histograms reveals that more than 73% of features have correlation coefficients of less than 0.4 (Fig.1D), confirming a comprehensive view of the cases with relatively small redundancy. We used Kernel-Principal Component Analysis (PCA) method to decrease the size of the feature space to an optimal number of synthetic features composed of correlated features. By employing PCA, we converted the original pool of 252 features to 64 new synthetic features resulting in a~4smaller feature space. We used this 64-element feature vector in the final classification process.

To design our classifier, we grouped our CXR images into three target classes, each containing 140 images; normal, COVID-19, non-COVID-19 pneumonia (Supplementary Figure2). We trained a multi-layer neural network, including one output classifier layer and two hidden layers, aiming to classify CXR images into three target groups (Fig.2).
Neural network classifier including two hidden layers of 128 and 16 neurons respectively, followed by a final classifier to classify cases into three categories of normal, COVID-19, non-COVID-19 pneumonia.
After 33 epochs of the training process, both training and validation loss scores reached~0.22, corresponding theaccuracy of 94%(Fig.3A). The loss graph showed a good fit between validation and training curves, confirming that our model is not suffering from overfitting or underfitting. We would like to note that our model has~10,000 parameters that are considerably smaller than typical image classification models such as AlexNET with 60 million parameters16, VGG-16 with 138 million17, GoogleNet-V1 with 5 million18, and ResNet-50 with 25 million parameters19. Next, we generated a receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve and computed thearea under the ROC (AUC) to further evaluate the performance of our model (Fig.3B). A comparison of CXR images of COVID-19 cases with non-COVID-19 showed that our model has100% sensitivity and 96% precision when evaluated on a test set of 84 CXR images (Fig.3C and Table 1). Moreover, our synthetic feature classifier outperforms any single feature classifier as measured by AUC (Fig.3D). It is noteworthy that single synthetic features as the primary fast and low computational cost classifier can be accurate up to~90% (Supplementary Figure3).

(C) The Confusion matrix of predicting 84 test samples in three categories. (D) To compare and analyze the discrimination power of different single features among the original 252 extracted features, we used AUC values as an indicator. All features were sorted in the order of their AUC values.
In this study, we proposed an efficient machine-learning classifier that accurately distinguished COVID-19 CXR images from normal cases and pneumonia caused by other viruses. Among different imaging modalities20,21,22, X-ray is still the fastest and prevalent screening tool for detecting lung diseases and infections. However, there are some suspicious lung infection masses in x-ray images, which may result in misdiagnosis. Thus, a new approach to assist in automated lung screening analysis and facilitate the classification of different types of lung diseases is crucial. Our work shows that this is possible with relatively straightforward machine learning classifiers. Our proposed machine learning approach has the following distinctive characteristics:
First, by deriving the global image features from the entire chest area, we avoided the lesion segmentation complexities and errors. In addition, we confirmed that the diagnostic information can be distributed on the entire chest area of the X-ray image, not only in the lesion area.
Second, in the feature extraction scheme, we focused on features obtained from both the spatial domain (Texture, GLDM, GLCM) and frequency domain (Wavelet and FFT), unlike many previous machine learning models analyzing only the texture-based features in the spatial domain. In addition, using the two-class classification results shown in Supplementary Figure3 (second row), we showed that if we, in an experiment, aim at distinguishing COVID-19 cases from other categories, the discrimination power and performance of features obtained from the frequency domain (FFT group) are more effective than features extracted from the spatial domain. The average AUC of the FFT group is around 0.71, showing the significance of acquiring such frequency domain features compared to other groups with an average AUC value of less than 0.63. Furthermore, the examination of every single feature in this experiment revealed that all top seven features belonged to the FFT category with an AUC value higher than or equal to 0.77, which may indicate that those frequency domain features were more relevant to the detection of COVID-19 cases.
Third, we investigated the influences of applying a dimensionality reduction method to obtain optimal and more correlated features. Interestingly, the results demonstrated that our dimensionality reduction method, in addition to reducing the dimension of feature space, is able to identify the new smaller feature fusion with more correlated information and a lower amount of redundancy. Besides, decreasing the ratio of the number of features to the number of cases per class will improve the reliability and robustness of the ML classifier while decreasing the risk of overfitting. Therefore, we could successfully classify CXR images using a relatively small image dataset of 420 cases. Typically, this is not possible with conventional deep learning models as they need a large dataset.
Although we obtained promising results, there are a few limitations in this study. First, our CXR dataset has a relatively small size. A larger dataset consisting of the cases from different institutions would be useful to more verify our proposed model's robustness and reliability. Also, in our future work, we will investigate different feature selection and feature reduction methods such as DNE23, Relief24, LPP5, Fast-ICA25, recursive feature elimination26, variable ranking techniques27, or merging them with our feature reduction approach. Besides, although the neural network-based classifier utilized in this investigation can solve our complicated problem efficiently, it might be useful to explore other efficient and prevalent classifiers such as SVM28, GLM29, Random Forest30.
This resource is fully open-source, providing users with Python codes used in preparing image datasets, feature extraction, feature evaluation, training the ML model, and evaluation of the trained ML model. We used a dataset, which is collected from two resources of31,32. Our collected dataset included 420 2-D X-ray images in the Posteroanterior (P.A.) chest view, classified by valid tests to three predefined categories of Normal (140 images), pneumonia (140 images), and COVID-19 (140 images). We set all image sizes to 512512 pixels. Supplementary Figure2 shows three example images.
In the scheme that we employed in the feature extraction part (Fig.1A andSupplementary Figure 1), a total of 252 spatial and frequency -domain features were computed and categorized into five groups of (1) Texture33, (2) Gray Level Difference Method(GLDM)11 (3), Gray-Level Co-Occurrence Matrix(GLCM)34, (4) Fast Fourier Transform(FFT)35, and (5) Wavelet Transforms(WT)36. Wavelet transforms were decomposed in eight sub-bands. GLDM and GLCM coefficients were alsocomputed in four directions. As illustrated in SupplementaryFigure1, each group or each group-subsection then was passed to a feature calculator function to calculate 14 statistical features comprising of Skewness, Kurtosis, Mean, Entropy, Energy, Std, Mean, Median, Max, Min, Mean Deviation, RMS, Range, MeanGradient, StdGradient, and Uniformity. The feature extraction scheme resulted in 252 features for each X-ray image in total (14 features for Texture, 14 features for FFT, 56 features for GLCM, 56 features for GLDM, and 112 features for Wavelet).
Supplementary Figure3A shows the AUC values of single features based on their AUC values in sorted order (highest to lowest) and considering three positive class labels. We used the AUC value as an index to compare the classification power of every single feature. As seen in all three AUCgraphs, most of the features reported AUC values ofhigher than 0.6, where features MeanDeviation_GLDM, Max_FFT, and Kurtosis_Wavelet were the best features associated with positive class labels of Normal, COVID-19, and Pneumonia with an AUC value of 0.91, 0.87, and 0.88, respectively.
Supplementary Figure3B also compares the performance of five groups of features based on their average AUC values showing there is no significant difference between them, particularly where the positive label is pneumonia. Given COVID is the target class, the FFT group recorded the best performance, while the best group for the Normal class is GLDM.
A schematic diagram of our model training and test processes is shown in Supplementary Figure4. We randomly split the original image dataset into a training set (80%) and a test set (20%). The train-test split is a technique used to evaluate supervised machine learning algorithms' performance where we have the inputs and desired output labels. The machine-learning algorithm uses the training set to make the model learn the patterns in the input by minimizing the error between predictions and target outputs. The test set is then used to evaluate the trained model's performance. Without providing a large enough training dataset, the model cannot generalize the knowledge from the training set to the test set, leading to low predictive accuracy in the test phase for unseen cases, as shown in Supplementary Figure5.
We chose Adam optimizer to optimize model weights and minimize the categorical cross-entropy loss function. The learning algorithm hyperparameters were set as follows: MaxEpochs=100, BatchSize=2, LearningRate=0.001, ValidationRatio=0.2, TestRatio=0.2, TrainRatio=0.6, andDropoutValue=0.2. We also used the Early Stopping technique to stop training when the validation score stops improving, aiming to avoid learning algorithm from overfitting. The run-time of different parts of our proposed machine learning scheme, listed in Table 2, indicates that our model needed a short time of 15.4s to learntraining set and2.03sto predict one test sample.

A Microsoft 365 trainable classifier is a tool you can train to recognize various types of content by giving it samples to look at. Once trained, you can use it to identify item for application of Office sensitivity labels, Communications compliance policies, and retention label policies.
Creating a custom trainable classifier first involves giving it samples that are human picked and positively match the category. Then, after it has processed those, you test the classifiers ability to predict by giving it a mix of positive and negative samples. This article shows you how to create and train a custom classifier and how to improve the performance of custom trainable classifiers and pre-trained classifiers over their lifetime through retraining.
Opt-in is required the first time for trainable classifiers. It takes twelve days for Microsoft 365 to complete a baseline evaluation of your organizations content. Contact your global administrator to kick off the opt-in process.
When you want a trainable classifier to independently and accurately identify an item as being in particular category of content, you first have to present it with many samples of the type of content that are in the category. This feeding of samples to the trainable classifier is known as seeding. Seed content is selected by a human and is judged to represent the category of content.
You need to have at least 50 positive samples and as many as 500. The trainable classifier will process up to the 500 most recent created samples (by file created date/time stamp). The more samples you provide, the more accurate the predictions the classifier will make.
Once the trainable classifier has processed enough positive samples to build a prediction model, you need to test the predictions it makes to see if the classifier can correctly distinguish between items that match the category and items that don't. You do this by selecting another, hopefully larger, set of human picked content that consists of samples that should fall into the category and samples that won't. You should test with different data than the initial seed data you first provided. Once it processes those, you manually go through the results and verify whether each prediction is correct, incorrect, or you aren't sure. The trainable classifier uses this feedback to improve its prediction model.
Collect between 50-500 seed content items. These must be only samples that strongly represent the type of content you want the trainable classifier to positively identify as being in the classification category. See, Default crawled file name extensions and parsed file types in SharePoint Server for the supported file types.
Make sure the items in your seed set are strong examples of the category. The trainable classifier initially builds its model based on what you seed it with. The classifier assumes all seed samples are strong positives and has no way of knowing if a sample is a weak or negative match to the category.
Within 24 hours the trainable classifier will process the seed data and build a prediction model. The classifier status is In progress while it processes the seed data. When the classifier is finished processing the seed data, the status changes to Need test items.
Collect at least 200 test content items (10,000 max) for best results. These should be a mix of items that are strong positives, strong negatives and some that are a little less obvious in their nature. See, Default crawled file name extensions and parsed file types in SharePoint Server for the supported file types.
When the trainable classifier is done processing your test files, the status on the details page will change to Ready to review. If you need to increase the test sample size, choose Add items to test and allow the trainable classifier to process the additional items.
Microsoft 365 will present 30 items at a time. Review them and in the We predict this item is "Relevant". Do you agree? box choose either Yes or No or Not sure, skip to next item. Model accuracy is automatically updated after every 30 items.
Hi, welcome to the another post on classification concepts. So far we have talked bout different classification concepts like logistic regression, knn classifier, decision trees .., etc. In this article, we were going to discuss support vector machine which is a supervised learning algorithm. Just to give why we were so interested to write about Svm as it is one of the powerful technique for Classification, Regression & Outlier detection with an intuitive model.
Before we drive into the concepts of support vector machine, lets remember the backend heads of Svm classifier. Vapnik & Chervonenkis originally invented support vector machine.At that time, the algorithm was in early stages. Drawing hyperplanes only for linear classifier was possible.
From then, Svm classifier treated as one of the dominant classification algorithms. In further sections of our article, we were going to discuss linear and non-linear classes. However, Svm is a supervised learning technique. When we have a dataset with features & class labels both then we can use Support Vector Machine. But if in our dataset do not have class labels or outputs of our feature set then it is considered as an unsupervised learning algorithm. In that case, we can use Support Vector Clustering.
For a dataset consisting of features set and labels set, an SVM classifier builds a model to predict classes for new examples. It assigns new example/data points to one of the classes. If there are only 2 classes then it can be called as a Binary SVM Classifier.
In thelinear classifiermodel, we assumed that training examples plotted in space. These data points are expected to be separated by an apparent gap. It predicts a straight hyperplane dividing 2 classes. The primary focus while drawing the hyperplane is on maximizing the distance from hyperplane to the nearest data point of either class. The drawn hyperplane called as amaximum-margin hyperplane.
In thereal world, our dataset is generally dispersed up to some extent. To solve this problem separation of data into different classes on the basis of astraight linear hyperplane cant be considered a good choice. For this Vapnik suggested creating Non-Linear Classifiers by applying the kernel trick to maximum-margin hyperplanes. In Non-Linear SVM Classification, data points plotted in a higher dimensional space.
In thereal world, you may find f ew values that correspondto extreme casesi.e, exceptions.These exceptions are known as Outliers. SVM have the capability to detect and ignoreoutliers.In the image, 2 are in between the group of . These are outliers.
While selecting hyperplane, SVM will automatically ignore these and select best-performing hyperplane.1st & 2nd decision boundaries are separating classes but 1st decision boundary shows maximum margin in between boundary and support vectors.
We can use different types of kernels like Radial Basis Function Kernel, Polynomial kernel etc. We have shown a decision boundary separating both the classes. This decision boundary resembles a parabola.
In Linear Classifier, A data point considered as a p-dimensional vector(list of p-numbers) and we separate points using (p-1) dimensional hyperplane. There can be many hyperplanes separating data in a linear order, but the best hyperplane is considered to be the one which maximizes the margin i.e., the distance between hyperplane and closest data point of either class.
TheMaximum-margin hyperplane is determined by the data points that lie nearest to it. Since we have to maximize the distance between hyperplane and the data points. These data points which influences our hyperplane are known as support vectors.
Vapnik proposed Non-Linear Classifiers in 1992. It often happens that our data points are not linearly separable in a p-dimensional(finite) space. To solve this, it was proposed to map p-dimensional space into a much higher dimensional space. We can draw customized/non-linear hyperplanes using Kernel trick. Every kernel holds a non-linear kernel function.
Linearly Separable: For the data which can be separated linearly, we select two parallel hyperplanes that separate the two classes of data, so that distance between both the lines is maximum.The region b/w these two hyperplanes is known as margin & maximum margin hyperplane is the one that lies in the middle of them.
whereis normal vector to the hyperplane, i denotes classes & xi denotes features. TheDistance between two hyperplanes is , to maximize this distance denominator value should be minimized i.e,should be minimized. For proper classification, we can build a combined equation:
For implementing support vector machine on a dataset, we can use libraries. There are many libraries or packages available that can help us to implement SVM smoothly. We just need to call functions with parameters according to our need.
SVC() and NuSVC() methods are almost similar but with some difference in parameters. We pass values of kernel parameter, gamma and C parameter etc. By default kernel parameter uses rbf as its value but we can pass values like poly, linear, sigmoid or callable function.
In R programming language, we can use packages like e1071 or caret. For using a package, we need to install it first. For installing e1071, we can type install.packages("e1071")in console. e1071 provides an SVM() method, it can be used for both regression and classification. SVM() method accepts data, gamma values and kernel etc.
 In the classification course, you willlearn about real world classification applications. Will learn the fundamental difference between the binary and multinomial classification techniques. You will be introduced to the concepts like logistic regression, support vector machine algorithms.
