Sparse least squares support vector machine with adaptive kernel parameters
© 2020 The Authors. In this paper, we propose an efficient Least Squares Support Vector Machine (LS-SVM) training algorithm, which incorporates sparse representation and dictionary learning. First, we formalize the LS-SVM training as a sparse representation process. Second, kernel parameters are adjusted by optimizing their average coherence. As such, the proposed algorithm addresses the training problem via generating the sparse solution and optimizing kernel parameters simultaneously. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed algorithm is capable of achieving competitive performance compared to state-of-the-art approaches.
