SVM tutorial

About this SVM e-book

Is it possible to perform SVM in Excel with mere spreadsheet without macro programming ? The answer is YES. This tutorial will explain how to do it step by step.

If you have ever read any other books on SVM, you will know how notoriously difficult it is to understand SVM. It is not the case with this tutorial. This tutorial is for real beginners with more than 60 figures and illustrations. You can enjoy reading the sample of the first two sections of SVM tutorial here. You can see that the difficult topics have been transformed into systematic and very simple explanations. In this e-book, you will learn how to perform training on Support Vector Machines, evaluating SVM training and predicting with SVM by a complete numerical examples for linearly separable as well as for linearly non-separable cases. You will learn how to use slack variables, kernel trick and well as kernel transformation through examples in Microsoft Excel. The e-book also discussed about SVM for multi classes, the strengths and weaknesses of SVM, when to use and when not to use SVM. Step by step on solving dual problem of SVM is also discussed. What is more, the e-book also comes with many spreadsheet companion files that include your own practice worksheets and the complete solutions. The complete solution include SVM training, evaluation and prediction. This e-book SVM tutorial and its companion files are designed to greatly enhance your understanding of SVM in very gentle way but fast to learn. With this e-book as your guide, learning SVM becomes easy steps and enjoyable practice moment.

You cannot find this information of doing SVM only using Spreadsheet without programming anywhere else!

What is SVM?

Support Vector Machines (SVM) is a supervised learning algorithm that classifies both linear and nonlinear data based on maximizing margin between support points and a nonlinear mapping to transform the original training data into a higher dimension. SVM was originally developed by Vapnik and Cortes and colleagues in 1992 based on the groundwork from Vapnik & Chervonenkis statistical learning theory in 1960s. SVM has been successfully applied in many applications including handwritten recognition, time-series prediction, speech Recognition, database marketing, protein sequence problem, breast cancer diagnosis and many more.

This tutorial will give you a very gentle introduction to SVM by giving simple step by step numerical solution using Microsoft Excel (and Python in the Appendix). You will learn about how you can train the SVM model, how to evaluate and use the SVM model to predict the classification. You will also learn by complete numerical example about how to handle linearly non-separable cases using slack variables and kernel tricks. By reading and do the practice of the numerical examples of this tutorial to the end, at least you will be able to ready to read other more advanced SVM books.

The e-book also comes with spreadsheet companion files that include your own practice worksheets and the complete solutions. The complete solution include SVM training, evaluation and prediction. This e-book SVM tutorial and its companion files are designed to greatly enhance your understanding of SVM in very gentle and fast to learn. With this e-book as your first guide, learning SVM becomes easy steps and enjoyable practice moment.
