  • This article deals with various aspects of normalization in the context of Support Vector Machines. We consider fist normalization of the vectors in the input space and point out the inherent limitations. A natural extension to the feature space is then represented by the kernel function normalization. A correction of the position of the Optimal Separating Hyperplane is subsequently introduced so as to suit better these normalized kernels. Numerical experiments finally evaluate the different… CONTINUE READING
