Multicategory Support Vector Machines

  title={Multicategory Support Vector Machines},
  author={Yoonkyung Lee and Yi Juain Lin and Grace Wahba},
The Support Vector Machine (SVM) has shown great performance in practice as a classification methodology. Oftentimes multicategory problems have been treated as a series of binary problems in the SVM paradigm. Even though the SVM implements the optimal classification rule asymptotically in the binary case, solutions to a series of binary problems may not be optimal for the original multicategory problem. We propose multicategory SVMs, which extend the binary SVM to the multicategory case, and… CONTINUE READING
