[…] computed for each run were z-scored per voxel. multivariate decoding was performed on these z-scored β weights using linear support vector machines [svm; pymvpa’s linearcsvmc implementation of the libsvm classification algorithm; , in a within-subject leave-one-run-out cross-validation of 5-way multi-class classification of musical genres. leave-one-out cross-validation was performed in order […]

[…] mcr scores of these three methods, we directly fetch the mcr values for comparison., in the process of svm training and predicting, we use the open source tool “library for support vector machines (libsvm [])” to perform svm training and predicting tasks. libsvm is an integrated software for support vector classification, regression and distribution estimation. it provides an easy-to-use […]

[…] amounts of disparate datasets. the two datasets that were collected during this study represent gait with multiple asymmetric changes and hence, can be used to find patterns. for this study the libsvm library (chang and lin, ) was used because it is easy to implement and it is widely used for research data. the machine is trained using labels and a training dataset. the labels are long […]

[…] we chose the “%incmse” (increase of mean squared error) to represent the criteria of relative importance measure. for svr, we utilized the e1071 r package, which provides functionalities to use the libsvm library []. the absolute values of the coefficients of the normal vector to the “optimal” hyperplane can be considered the relative importance of each predictor variable contributing […]

[…] to specific features of the methods (). the different method classes had different features. in the functions class, most of the methods use a functional solution for modeling the data, such as libsvm [] and logistic regression [], and in most cases, few mechanisms are available for ensemble learning, such as voting or resampling. however, in the meta class, the methods use resampling […]
