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

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

When LP is not a good idea – using structure in polyhedral optimization problems

It has been known for almost 50 years that the discrete l_1 approximation problem can be solved effectively by linear programming. However, improved algorithms involve a step which can be interpreted as a line search, and which is not part of the standard LP solution procedures. l_1 provides the simplest example of a class of … Read more
