Support Vector Machines, one of the new techniques for pattern classification, have been widely used in many application areas. The kernel parameters setting for SVM in a training process impacts on the classification accuracy. Feature selection is another factor that impacts classification accuracy. The objective of this research is to simultaneously optimize the parameters and feature subset without degrading the SVM classification accuracy. We present a genetic algorithm approach for feature… CONTINUE READING
