Abstract

Computational complexity is one of the most important issues while dealing with the training of Support Vector Machines(SVMs), which is done by solving corresponding linear constrained convex quadratic programming problems. The state-ofthe- art training of SVMs takes iterative decomposition strategies that focus on working-set selection to solve quadratic programming problems. Shrinking and caching are two indispensable strategies to reduce the complexity of the decomposition process. Yet, most existing caching strategies mainly consider usage records of samples, while ignoring probabilities of samples being selected into working sets. These probabilities might determine the efficiency of caching. This paper proposes an improved caching strategy by taking into account these probabilities of samples being selected into working sets, to reduce computational costs of kernel evaluations in the training of SVMs. Experiments on several benchmark data sets show that our caching strategy is more efficient than those existing ones.
