Abstract: Asymmetric margin error costs for positive and negative examples are often cited as an efficient heuristic compensating for unrepresentative priors in training support vector classifiers. In this paper we show that this heuristic is well justified via simple resampling ideas applied to the dual Lagrangian defining the 1-norm soft-margin support vector machine. This observation also provides a simple expression for the asymptotically optimal ratio of margin error penalties, eliminating the need for the trial-and-error experimentation normally encountered. This method allows the use of a smaller, balanced training data set in problems characterised by widely disparate prior probabilities, reducing training time. We demonstrate the usefulness of this method on a real world benchmark problem, that of predicting forest cover type given only cartographic data |

Abstract: The construction and implementation of a mathematical framework for the representation of the hazards that arise from Clostridium botulinum growth, and toxin production, in food are described. Botulism has been recognised as a serious foodborne illness for over a century and, more recently, has become the subject of increased concern due to changing processing and consumption patterns associated with foods. In this respect quantitative risk assessment has an increasingly important role to play in assisting risk management and ensuring the safety of minimally processed foods and foods with extended shelf life.DTLpar Bayesian Belief Networks are a type of expert system that integrates a graphical flow diagram like, representation of a hazard domain with a powerful technique for combining probabilities. This technique facilitates the accumulation of understanding and experience, for particular hazard domains, into computer tools that can be used to inspect risks and account for decisions.DTLpar Analysis of the hazards associated with foodborne botulism involves Belief Network components that represent contamination processes, thermal death kinetics for spores, germination and growth of cells, toxin production and patterns of consumer behaviour, etc. These developments are discussed and three important aspects of the food safety information supply, complexity, dependency and uncertainty highlighted. The benefits associated with a Bayesian view of food safety assessment are illustrated by a Belief Network representation which supports, and prioritises, decisions and actions that (a) minimise the chances and extent of the detrimental events and (b) maximise opportunities for awareness and control. |

Abstract: Suykens et al. describes a form of kernel ridge regression known as the least-squares support vector machine (LS-SVM). In this paper, we present a simple, but efficient, greedy algorithm for constructing near optimal sparse approximations of least-squares support vector machines, in which at each iteration the training pattern minimising the regularised empirical risk is introduced into the kernel expansion. The proposed method demonstrates superior performance when compared with the pruning technique described by Suykens et al., over the motorcycle and Boston housing datasets |

Abstract: Baudat and Anouar (2001) propose a simple greedy algorithm for estimation of an approximate basis of the subspace spanned by a set of fixed vectors embedded in a kernel induced feature space. The resulting set of basis vectors can then be used to construct sparse kernel expansions for classification and regression tasks. In this paper we describe five algorithmic improvements to the method of Baudat and Anouar, allowing the construction of an approximate basis with a computational complexity that is independent of the number of training patterns, depending only on the number of basis vectors extracted |

Abstract: Suykens et al. describe a weighted least-squares formulation of the support vector machine for regression problems and presents a simple algorithm for sparse approximation of the typically fully dense kernel expansions obtained using this method. In this paper, we present an improved method for achieving sparsity in least-squares support vector machines, which takes into account the residuals for all training patterns, rather than only those incorporated in the sparse kernel expansion. The superiority of this algorithm is demonstrated on the motorcycle and Boston housing datasets |

Abstract: Ridge regression is a classical statistical technique that attempts to address the bias-variance trade-off in the design of linear regression models. A reformulation of ridge regression in dual variables permits a non-linear form of ridge regression via the well-known ``kernel trick''. Unfortunately, unlike support vector regression models, the resulting kernel expansion is typically fully dense. In this paper, we introduce a reduced rank kernel ridge regression (RRKRR) algorithm, capable of generating an optimally sparse kernel expansion that is functionally identical to that resulting from conventional kernel ridge regression (KRR). The proposed method is demonstrated to out-perform an alternative sparse kernel ridge regression algorithm on the Motorcycle and Boston Housing benchmarks |

Abstract: A regularised kernel regression model is introduced for data characterised by a heteroscedastic (input dependent variance) Gaussian noise process. The proposed model provides more robust estimates of the conditional mean than standard models and also confidence intervals (error bars) on predictions. The benefits of the proposed model are demonstrated for the task of non-linear prediction of episodes of poor air quality in urban environments |

Abstract: Model selection methods for kernel machines often seek to minimise an upper bound on the leave-one-out cross-validation error. This paper describes an efficient algorithm for exact leave-one-out cross-validation of least-squares support vector machines, in both classification and regression settings. The proposed method exploits the considerable redundancy in the family of systems of linear equations to be solved in explicit computation of the leave-one-out error. The efficiency of the proposed approach is demonstrated using real-world and synthetic benchmark datasets |

Abstract: Kernel logistic regression models, like their linear counterparts, can be trained using the efficient iteratively re-weighted least-squares (IRWLS) algorithm. This approach suggests an approximate leave-one-out cross-validation estimator based on an existing method for exact leave-one-out cross-validation of least-squares models. Results compiled over seven benchmark datasets are presented for kernel logistic regression with model selection procedures based on both conventional k-fold and approximate leave-one-out cross-validation criteria, demonstrating the proposed approach to be viable. |

Abstract: In this paper we extend a form of kernel ridge regression (KRR) for data characterised by a heteroscedastic (i.e. input dependent variance) Gaussian noise process, introduced in Foxall et al. Foxall2002a. It is shown that the proposed heteroscedastic kernel ridge regression model can give a more accurate estimate of the conditional mean of the target distribution than conventional KRR and also provides an indication of the spread of the target distribution (i.e. predictive error bars). The leave-one-out cross-validation estimate of the conditional mean is used in fitting the model of the conditional variance in order to overcome the inherent bias in maximum likelihood estimates of the variance. The benefits of the proposed model are demonstrated on synthetic and real-world benchmark data sets and for the task of predicting episodes of poor air quality in an urban environment. |
