In the previous post on Support Vector Machines (SVM), we looked at the mathematical details of the algorithm. In this post, I will be discussing the practical implementations of SVM for classification as well as regression. I will be using the iris dataset as an example for the classification problem, and a randomly generated data as an example for the regression problem.
