The training time for SVMs to compute the maximal marginal hyper-plane is at least O(N/sup 2/) with the data set size N, which makes it nonfavorable for large data sets. This work presents a study for enhancing the training time of SVMs, specifically when dealing with large data sets, using hierarchical clustering analysis. We use the dynamically growing self-organizing tree (DGSOT) algorithm for clustering because it has proved to overcome the drawbacks of traditional hierarchical clustering… CONTINUE READING
