Description

select_feature_set_trainf_svmselect_feature_set_trainf_svmSelectFeatureSetTrainfSvmselect_feature_set_trainf_svmSelectFeatureSetTrainfSvmSelectFeatureSetTrainfSvm selects an optimal combination of features, to classify the data given in the training file TrainingFileTrainingFileTrainingFileTrainingFileTrainingFiletrainingFile with a Support Vector Machine (SVM), for details see create_ocr_class_svmcreate_ocr_class_svmCreateOcrClassSvmcreate_ocr_class_svmCreateOcrClassSvmCreateOcrClassSvm.

Possible features are all OCR features listed and explained in create_ocr_class_svmcreate_ocr_class_svmCreateOcrClassSvmcreate_ocr_class_svmCreateOcrClassSvmCreateOcrClassSvm. All candidates which should be tested can be specified in FeatureListFeatureListFeatureListFeatureListFeatureListfeatureList. A subset of these features is returned as selected features in FeatureSetFeatureSetFeatureSetFeatureSetFeatureSetfeatureSet.

select_feature_set_trainf_svmselect_feature_set_trainf_svmSelectFeatureSetTrainfSvmselect_feature_set_trainf_svmSelectFeatureSetTrainfSvmSelectFeatureSetTrainfSvm is specialized on OCR problems and only supports the features in the list mentioned before. In order to use other features, please use the more general operator select_feature_set_svmselect_feature_set_svmSelectFeatureSetSvmselect_feature_set_svmSelectFeatureSetSvmSelectFeatureSetSvm.

The selection method SelectionMethodSelectionMethodSelectionMethodSelectionMethodSelectionMethodselectionMethod is either a greedy search 'greedy'"greedy""greedy""greedy""greedy""greedy" (iteratively add the feature with highest gain) or the dynamically oscillating search 'greedy_oscillating'"greedy_oscillating""greedy_oscillating""greedy_oscillating""greedy_oscillating""greedy_oscillating" (add the feature with highest gain and test then if any of the already added features can be left out without great loss). The method 'greedy'"greedy""greedy""greedy""greedy""greedy" is generally preferable, since it is faster. Only in cases when a large training set is available the method 'greedy_oscillating'"greedy_oscillating""greedy_oscillating""greedy_oscillating""greedy_oscillating""greedy_oscillating" might return better results.

The optimization criterion is the classification rate of a two-fold cross-validation of the training data. The best achieved value is returned in ScoreScoreScoreScoreScorescore.

The parameters 'nu'"nu""nu""nu""nu""nu" and 'gamma'"gamma""gamma""gamma""gamma""gamma" for the SVM that is used to classify can be set to 'auto'"auto""auto""auto""auto""auto" by using the parameters GenParamNamesGenParamNamesGenParamNamesGenParamNamesGenParamNamesgenParamNames and GenParamValuesGenParamValuesGenParamValuesGenParamValuesGenParamValuesgenParamValues. If they are set to 'auto'"auto""auto""auto""auto""auto", the estimated optimal 'nu'"nu""nu""nu""nu""nu" and/or 'gamma'"gamma""gamma""gamma""gamma""gamma" is estimated. The automatic estimation of 'nu'"nu""nu""nu""nu""nu" and 'gamma'"gamma""gamma""gamma""gamma""gamma" can take a substantial amount of time (up to days, depending on the data set and the number of features). Alternatively, a certain value for both can be set the same way. An explanation of the parameters 'nu'"nu""nu""nu""nu""nu" and 'gamma'"gamma""gamma""gamma""gamma""gamma" as the kernel parameter of the radial basis function (RBF) kernel can be found in create_class_svmcreate_class_svmCreateClassSvmcreate_class_svmCreateClassSvmCreateClassSvm.

Attention

This operator may take considerable time, depending on the size of the data set in the training file, and the number of features.

Please note, that this operator should not be called, if only a small set of training data is available. Due to the risk of overfitting the operator select_feature_set_trainf_svmselect_feature_set_trainf_svmSelectFeatureSetTrainfSvmselect_feature_set_trainf_svmSelectFeatureSetTrainfSvmSelectFeatureSetTrainfSvm may deliver a classifier with a very high score. However, the classifier may perfom poorly when tested.

Parallelization

This operator returns a handle. Note that the state of an instance of this handle type may be changed by specific operators even though the handle is used as an input parameter by those operators.
