CloudSVM : Training an SVM Classi Er in Cloud Computing Systems

In conventional method, distributed Support Vector Machines (SVM) algorithms are trained over pre-configured intranet/internet environments to find out an optimal classifier. These methods are very complicated and costly for large datasets. Hence, the authors propose a method that is referred as the Cloud SVM training mechanism (CloudSVM) in a cloud computing environment with MapReduce technique for distributed machine learning applications. Accordingly, SVM algorithm is trained in distributed cloud storage servers that work concurrently; merge all support vectors in every trained cloud node; and iterate these two steps until the SVM converges to the optimal classifier function. Large scale data sets are not possible to train using SVM algorithm on a single computer.
