Support Vector Machine in Waffles

  • Anonymous - 2014-01-28


    I am using the fantastic Waffles for text classification. and I need to use support vector machine algoritm on my data. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the appropriate GLearner class. Would you please explain what is the best strategy to do SVM classification in waffle? Maybe I am supposed to use LibSVM and create my own GLearner. If I am right about it, please explain me the way I can do that.

    Thanks in advance (Special Thanks to Dr. Gashler for such a holistic application),

    Waffles currently lacks an SVM classifier, so implementing your own learner that wraps LibSVM is probably the easiest way to do it. Here is our documentation about how to write a new learner for Waffles:

    This is a feature that others have requested, so I am very interested in having this deficiency addressed. If you encounter difficulties, my e-mail address is on the main waffles page.

    Dear Dr. Gashler,

    Thanks for your instant response. I will go through the development and inform you about the results as soon as possible.

    Thanks again,
