Although a support vector machine model (binary classifier) is more commonly built by solving a quadratic programming problem in the dual space, it can be built fast by solving the primal optimization problem also. In this article a Support Vector Machine implementation is going to be described by solving the primal optimization…Continue

In this article, couple of implementations of the support vector machine binary classifier with quadratic programming libraries (in R and python respectively) and application on a few datasets are going to be discussed.
The next figure describes the basics of Soft-Margin SVM (without kernels).

In this article the multi-armed bandit framework problem and a few algorithms to solve the problem is going to be discussed. This problem appeared as a lab assignment in the edX course DAT257x: Reinforcement Learning Explained by Microsoft. The problem description is taken from the assignment itself.
Given a set of actions with some unknown reward distributions, …Continue
