libsvm v3.21

LIBSVM is an integrated software for support vector classification, (C-SVC, nu-SVC), regression (epsilon-SVR, nu-SVR) and distribution estimation (one-class SVM). It supports multi-class classification.

Accessing the software

To load the module:

$ module load apps/libsvm/v3.21

An example command to include in your job script:

svm-train <training_set_file> <model_file>

There is also a Matlab interface installed in Matlab r2015a. To run Matlab using this interface, load the modulefile for it and call the matlab binary with your libsvm script in your job script:

module load apps/matlab/r2015a
matlab -nodisplay -r <libsvmScript>

Accessing Previous Versions

Wherever possible, previous versions of this application will be retained for continuity, especially for research projects that require a consistent version of the software throughout the project. Such versions, however, may be unsupported by IT Services or the applications vendor, and may be withdrawn at short or no notice if they can no longer run on the cluster - for example, essential operating system upgrades may be incompatible with old versions.

At present there are no previous versions of this application on the BlueBEAR service.
