Query Learning with Large Margin Classifiers

Proceedings of ICML2000 (Stanford, CA, 2000).:8.

The active selection of instances can significantly improve the generalisation performance of a learning machine. Large margin classifiers such as Support Vector Machines classify data using the most informative instances (the support vectors). This makes them natural candidates for instance selection strategies. In this paper we propose an algorithm for the training of Support Vector Machines using instance selection. We give a theoretical justification for the strategy and experimental results on real and artificial data demonstrating its effectiveness. The technique is most efficient when thedataset can be learnt using few support vectors.
