—In this paper, we show how to learn a good similarity metric for SVM classification. We present a novel approach to simultaneously learn a Mahalanobis similarity metric and an SVM classifier. Different from previous approaches, we optimize the Mahalanobis metric directly for minimizing the SVM classification error. Our formulation generalizes the(More)
Society is more and more interested in developing mathematical models to assess and forecast the environmental and biological health conditions of our planet. However, most existing models cannot determine the long-range impacts of potential policies without considering the complex global factors and their cross effects in biological systems.
