File Inform ation


Description Support Vector Machines only classify data into tw o classes. This function removes that restriction by
"searching" for the correct class for each row in the test data set.
This code is a clarification and optimization of Anand Mishra's code found here:
http://w w w .mathw orks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/33170-multi-class-support-vector-machine
Use only w ith more than 2 classes, otherw ise use svmtrain() directly.
Usage Example:
%% SVM Multiclass Example
% SVM is inherently one vs one classification.
% This is an example of how to implement multiclassification using the
% one vs all approach.
TrainingSet=[ 1 10;2 20;3 30;4 40;5 50;6 66;3 30;4.1 42];
TestSet=[3 34; 1 14; 2.2 25; 6.2 63];
GroupTrain=[1;1;2;2;3;3;2;2];
results = multisvm(TrainingSet, GroupTrain, TestSet);
disp('multi class problem');
disp(results);

Sir is it possible for us to add w eights for the feature w ith this
code??? if so how to proceed w ith it..?

16 Feb 2013

Subha

Thank you sir.. now trying out w ith best possible combination...

If you are getting all 1s, you should try using different options for the
svmtrain function. for example:
options = statset('MaxIter',2000000);
models(k) = svmtrain(X_Train,G1vAll,'options',options,...
'kernel_function','rbf','rbf_sigma',16);

sir,
is it possible to plot confusion matrix for this program... if so how to do
tat.. w e have tried many combinations but does not w orking...
....
else any method to calculate the performance of the overall system
from test data's..

Subha

oh.. ok sir.. now its w orking.. thank a lot...

Ok, you are not using the function correctly.


load your .mat file, then pass your new variables as parameters to the
function.

Sir,
I've loaded data and w orked in 2 class problem. its w orks w ell...
this is my code.. i've just loaded the data and didnt change anything

more.
....
function [result] = multisvm(TrainingSet,GroupTrain,TestSet)
load TrainingSet
load GroupTrain
load TestSet
u=unique(GroupTrain);
numClasses=length(u);
result = zeros(length(TestSet(:,1)),1);
%build models
for k=1:numClasses
%Vectorized statement that binarizes Group
%w here 1 is the current class and 0 is all other classes
G1vAll=(GroupTrain==u(k))
models(k) = svmtrain(TrainingSet,G1vAll,'kernel_function','rbf');
end
%classify test cases
for j=1:size(TestSet,1)
for k=1:numClasses
if(svmclassify(models(k),TestSet(j,:)))
break;
end
end
result(j) = k;
end
w here,
training set is 16*4
test set is 4*4
grouptrain is 16*1
I'm using Matlab (R2010a)

It sounds like you need to learn how to load .mat files. Simply type
'load xxx.mat' w here xxx is the file name. You w ould then need to
sample your data into training, test, and label sets for use w ith this
function.
Can you show the code you are using?

Hello Sir,
Thanks for the code.. it w orks w ell w hen w e give data... but i'm
w orking w ith large set of data, w here i need to load it(.mat)..
I cant load data, if i do so then it show ing error message
??? Undefined function or variable 'GroupTrain'.
Error in ==> neuro_multisuport at 40
u=unique(GroupTrain);
w here grouptrain is a column vector(16*1) in .mat format
.. can u please suggest me how to modify the code w hen i load data...
