    • A.RahimK.Mohammadi
      Spring 2011
      Support Vector Machine for ECG Beat Classification
    • Maximum Margin
      Support Vector Machine (SVM)
      Multi-class SVM
      Result and Discussion
    • Maximum Margin
      denotes +1
      denotes -1
      Any of these would be fine..
      ..but which is best?
    • Linear Classifiers
      denotes +1
      denotes -1
      How would you classify this data?
      to +1 class
    • Maximum Margin
      SVM is a binary classification which separates classes in feature space
      The maximum margin linear classifier is the linear classifier with the maximum margin.
      This is the simplest kind of SVM (Called an LSVM)
      Support Vectors are those datapoints that the margin pushes up against
      Linear SVM
    • SVM
    • SVM
      Given the training sample
      and kernel function K
      SVM will find a coefficient ai for each xi through an quadratic maximization programming
      𝑖=1𝑛𝑎𝑖− 12𝑖,𝑗=1𝑛𝑎𝑖𝑎𝑗𝑦𝑖𝑦𝑗𝐾𝒙𝑖,𝒙𝑗𝑠𝑢𝑏𝑗𝑒𝑐𝑡 𝑡𝑜 0≤𝑎𝑖≤𝐶,  𝑖=1,2,…,𝑛 𝑎𝑛𝑑 𝑖=1𝑛𝑎𝑖𝑦𝑖=0
      Wher C is The cost parameter 
      Every new pattern x is classified to either one of the two categories
    • Non-linear SVMs: Feature spaces
      • General idea: the original input space can always be mapped to some higher-dimensional feature space where the training set is separable:
      Φ: x->φ(x)
    • One-against-all (OAA) SVMs
      Multi-class SVM
    • One-Against-One (OAO) SVMs
      Multi-class SVM
    • ECG beat Classification System
    • Results
    • Some Issues
      Choice of kernel
      - Gaussian or polynomial kernel is default
      - if ineffective, more elaborate kernels are needed
      - domain experts can give assistance in formulating appropriate similarity measures
      Choice of kernel parameters
      - e.g. σ in Gaussian kernel
      - σ is the distance between closest points with different classifications
      - In the absence of reliable criteria, applications rely on the use of a validation set or cross-validation to set such parameters.
      Optimization criterion – Hard margin v.s. Soft margin
      - a lengthy series of experiments in which various parameters are tested
    • SVMs are currently among the best performers for a number of classification tasks
      SVMs can be applied to complex data types beyond feature vectors (e.g. graphs, sequences, relational data) by designing kernel functions for such data.
      SVM successfully applied for multi-class classification
      The result shows the high performance of SVM in ECG beat classification
      SVM is good when we have high dimension feature space and lots of train patterns
