Recognition of protein folding patterns is an important step in protein structure and function predictions. Traditional sequence similarity-based approach fails to yield convincing predictions when proteins have low sequence identities, while the taxonometric approach is a reliable alternative. From a pattern recognition perspective, protein fold(More)
We present an algorithm for the application of support vector machine (SVM) learning to image compression. The algorithm combines SVMs with the discrete cosine transform (DCT). Unlike a classic radial basis function networks or multilayer perceptrons that require the topology of the network to be defined before training, an SVM selects the minimum number of(More)
The use of general descriptive names, registered names, trademarks, etc. in this publication does not imply, even in the absence of a specific statement, that such names are exempt from the relevant protective laws and regulations and therefore free for general use. Preface Swarm intelligence is an innovative computational way to solving hard problems. This(More)
Protein fold recognition task is important for understanding the biological functions of proteins. The adaptive local hyperplane (ALH) algorithm has been shown to perform better than many other renown classifiers including support vector machines, K-nearest neighbor, linear discriminant analysis, K-local hyperplane distance nearest neighbor algorithms and(More)
This paper introduces Sphere Support Vector Machines (SVMs) as the new fast classification algorithm based on combining a minimal enclosing ball approach, state of the art nearest point problem solvers and probabilistic techniques. The blending of the three significantly speeds up the training phase of SVMs and also attains practically the same accuracy as(More)
