NAME

AI::Categorizer::Learner::SVM - Support Vector Machine Learner

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  use AI::Categorizer::Learner::SVM;
 
  # Here $k is an AI::Categorizer::KnowledgeSet object
 
  my $l = new AI::Categorizer::Learner::SVM(...parameters...);
  $l->train(knowledge_set => $k);
  $l->save_state(filename);
 
  ... time passes ...
 
  $l = AI::Categorizer::Learner->restore_state(filename);
  while (my $document = ... ) {  # An AI::Categorizer::Document object
    my $hypothesis = $l->categorize($document);
    print "Best assigned category: ", $hypothesis->best_category, "\n";
  }



DESCRIPTION

This class implements a Support Vector Machine machine learner, using Cory Spencer’s Algorithm::SVM module. In lots of the recent academic literature, SVMs perform very well for text categorization.

METHODS

This class inherits from the AI::Categorizer::Learner class, so all of its methods are available unless explicitly mentioned here.

new()

Creates a new SVM Learner and returns it. In addition to the parameters accepted by the AI::Categorizer::Learner class, the SVM subclass accepts the following parameters:
svm_kernel Specifies what type of kernel should be used when building the SVM. Default is ’linear’. Possible values are ’linear’, ’polynomial’, ’radial’ and ’sigmoid’.

train(knowledge_set => CW$k)

Trains the categorizer. This prepares it for later use in categorizing documents. The knowledge_set parameter must provide an object of the class AI::Categorizer::KnowledgeSet (or a subclass thereof), populated with lots of documents and categories. See AI::Categorizer::KnowledgeSet for the details of how to create such an object.

    categorize($document)

Returns an AI::Categorizer::Hypothesis object representing the categorizer’s best guess about which categories the given document should be assigned to. See AI::Categorizer::Hypothesis for more details on how to use this object.

    save_state($path)

Saves the categorizer for later use. This method is inherited from AI::Categorizer::Storable.
