What you’ll learn—and how you can apply it
You’ll learn the core concepts one of the most popular models in Machine Learning—support vector machines—how to use them, and how they work.
Readers will gain an intuitive understanding of the mathematics involved in SVMs, including an introduction to using polynomial kernels.
At the end of this Lesson, readers will be able to do binary classification for rather simple problems.
This lesson is for you because
You have some programming experience and you’re ready to code a Machine Learning project.
You want to classify attributes on small- to medium-sized datasets and possibly complex datasets.
