Linear Discriminant and Support Vector Classiers

In: Advances in Large Margin Classifiers, ed. by A.J. Smola and P.L. Bartlett and B. Schölkopf and D. Schuurmans, pp. 147-169, Cambridge, MA, MIT Press.

At first glance, a Support Vector Classier appears to be nothing more than a generalized linear discriminant in a high dimensional transformed feature space; indeed, many aspects of SVCs can best be understood in relation to traditional linear discriminant techniques. This chapter explores interconnections between many linear discriminant techniques, including Perceptron, Radial Basis Functions (RBFs) and SVCs. The principle of duality between learning- or feature-based techniques (such as Perceptrons) and memory- or example-based methods (such as RBFs) is central to the development of SVCs. We provide several other examples of duality in linear discriminant learning algorithms.
