Example text

For purposes of medical diagnosis, values of the features could represent the results of certain medical tests. For recognition of written addresses on envelopes, the relevant area of an envelope could be represented by a grid of W Â H pixels, with a feature value for each pixel representing the intensity of light at the pixel, so there would be W Â H different features. For face recognition from color photographs using a grid of W Â H pixels, Induction and VC Dimension 31 feature values could include representations of each of the RGB values of each pixel (the intensities of red, green, and blue components of the color of the pixel), so there would be 3 Â W Â H features.

More precisely, the VC dimension of a set of rules C is the maximum number of data points that can be arranged so that C ‘‘shatters’’ those points. C shatters N data points iff for every one of the 2 N ways of assigning values to each of those points there is a rule in C that is in accord with that assignment. Vapnik connects the role of VC dimension with Popper’s (1934) discussion of the importance of falsifiability in science. 26 Chapter 1 used to classify new cases ( Joachims 1999; Vapnik 2000; Weston et al.

The ‘‘long run’’ is infinitely long and thus much longer than any merely finite beginning. Any infinite series in which the frequencey of heads approaches 1=2 will continue to do so with any large finite number of tails added to its beginning. 1 Reliability of Rules of Classification and Estimation Reliability of a Classification Rule We have discussed the distinction between rules of classification and a method for finding those rules. We have discussed how items to be classified might be represented as points in a feature space and how data might be represented as labeled points in a feature space.
