Hello there,

Is it possible to use Support Vector Machines and Artificial Neural Networks in Weka? Which classifier should I use?

I would like to get some more information on this topic, because it's quite new for me...

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Yes, Weka has support vector machines (both for classification and regression) and multi-layer perceptrons (neural nets). Try

weka.classifiers.functions.SMO (classification), weka.classifiers.functions.SMOreg (regression) and weka.classifiers.functions.MultilayerPerceptron.

More information can be found in the book that accompanies Weka:

Ian H. Witten and Eibe Frank. 2005. Data Mining: Practical Machine Learning Tools and Techniques. Morgan Kaufmann.

Plenty of information can be found on the web as well. Here is a guide to applying support vector machines:

Thank you very much! I will start reading whenever I have some time left...
