SVMs in One Picture


SVMs (Support Vector Machines) are a way to classify data by finding the optimal plane or hyperplane that separates the data. In 2D, the separation is a plane; In higher dimensions, it’s a hyperplane. For simplicity, the following picture shows how SVM works for a two-dimensional set.
