Nearly Uniform Validation Improves Compression-Based Error Bounds
Eric Bax; 9(Aug):1741--1755, 2008.
AbstractThis paper develops bounds on out-of-sample error rates for support vector machines (SVMs). The bounds are based on the numbers of support vectors in the SVMs rather than on VC dimension. The bounds developed here improve on support vector counting bounds derived using Littlestone and Warmuth's compression-based bounding technique.
