Kernel Support Vector Regression with imprecise output

We consider a regression problem where uncertainty affects to the dependent variable of the elements of the database. A model based on the standard epsilon-Support Vector Regression approach is given, where two hyperplanes need to be constructed to predict the interval-valued dependent variable. By using the Hausdorff distance to measure the error between predicted and … Read more

Building separating concentric balls to solve a multi-instance classification problem

In this work, we consider a classification problem where the objects to be classified are bags of instances which are vectors measuring d different attributes. The classification rule is defined in terms of a ball, whose center and radius are the parameters to be computed. Given a bag, it is assigned to the positive class … Read more

Support Vector Regression for imprecise data

In this work, a regression problem is studied where the elements of the database are sets with certain geometrical properties. In particular, our model can be applied to handle data affected by some kind of noise or uncertainty and interval-valued data, and databases with missing values as well. The proposed formulation is based on the … Read more

Classification problems with imprecise data through separating hyperplanes

We consider a supervised classification problem in which the elements to be classified are sets with certain geometrical properties. In particular, this model can be applied to deal with data affected by some kind of noise and in the case of interval-valued data. Two classification rules, a fuzzy one and a crisp one, are defined … Read more

Locating a semi-obnoxious facility with repelling polygonal regions

In this work, a semi-obnoxious facility must be located in the Euclidean plane to give service to a group of customers. Simultaneously, a set of populated areas, with shapes approximated via polygons, must be protected from the negative effects derived from that facility. The problem is formulated as a margin maximization model, following a strategy … Read more

Covering models with time-dependent demand

In this paper a covering model for locating facilities with time-dependent demand is introduced. Not only the facility locations, but also the instants at which such facilities become operative, are considered as decision variables in order to determine the maximal-profit decision. Expressed as a mixed nonlinear integer program, structural properties are derived for particular demand … Read more
