A new Support Vector Machine, SVM, is introduced, called GSVM, which is specially designed for bi-classication problems where balanced accuracy between classes is the objective. Starting from a standard SVM, the GSVM is obtained from a low-cost post-processing strategy by modifying the initial bias. Thus, the bias for GSVM is calculated by moving the original bias in the SVM to improve the geometric mean between the true positive rate and the true negative rate. The proposed solution neither… CONTINUE READING
