Support Vector Machine Classification

Support vector machines for binary or multiclass classification

For greater accuracy and kernel-function choices on low- through medium-dimensional data sets, train a binary SVM model or a multiclass error-correcting output codes (ECOC) model containing SVM binary learners using the Classification Learner app. For greater flexibility, use the command-line interface to train a binary SVM model using fitcsvm or train a multiclass ECOC model composed of binary SVM learners using fitcecoc.

For reduced computation time on high-dimensional data sets, efficiently train a binary, linear classification model, such as a linear SVM model, using fitclinear or train a multiclass ECOC model composed of SVM models using fitcecoc.

For nonlinear classification with big data, train a binary, Gaussian kernel classification model using fitckernel.
