In this tutorial we give an overview of the basic ideas underlying Support Vector (SV) machines for function estimation. Furthermore, we include a summary of currently used algorithms for training SV machines, covering both the quadratic (or convex) programming part and advanced methods for dealing with large datasets. Finally, we mention some modifications and extensions that have been applied to the standard SV algorithm, and discuss the aspect of regularization from a SV perspective.

We derive new bounds for the generalization error of kernel machines, such as support vector machines and related regularization networks by obtaining new bounds on their covering numbers. The proofs make use of a viewpoint that is apparently novel in the field of statistical learning theory. The hypothesis class is described in terms of a linear operator mapping from a possibly infinitedimensional unit ball in feature space into a finitedimensional space. The covering numbers of the class are then determined via the entropy numbers of the operator. These numbers, which characterize the degree of compactness of the operator, can be bounded in terms of the eigenvalues of an integral operator induced by the kernel function used by the machine. As a consequence, we are able to theoretically explain the effect of the choice of kernel function on the generalization performance of support vector machines.

Kernel Principal Component Analysis (KPCA) has proven to be a versatile tool for unsupervised learning, however at a high computational cost due to the dense expansions in terms of kernel functions. We overcome this problem by proposing a new class of feature extractors employing ` 1 norms in coefficient space instead of the reproducing kernel Hilbert space in which KPCA was originally formulated in. Moreover, the modified setting allows us to efficiently extract features maximizing criteria other than the variance much in a projection pursuit fashion.

Support Vector Machines (SVMs) have successfully shown efficiencies in many areas such as text categorization. Although recommendation systems share many similarities with text categorization, the performance of SVMs in recommendation systems is not acceptable due to the sparsity of the useritem matrix. In this paper, we propose a heuristic method to improve the predictive accuracy of SVMs by repeatedly correcting the missing values in the useritem matrix. The performance comparison to other algorithms has been conducted. The experimental studies show that the accurate rates of our heuristic method are the highest.
