In this paper we show that this heuristic is well justified via simple resampling ideas applied to the dual Lagrangian defining the 1-norm soft-margin support vector machine. This observation also provides a simple expression for the asymptotically optimal ratio of margin error penalties, eliminating the need for the trial-and-error experimentation normally encountered. This method allows the use of a smaller, balanced training data set in problems characterised by widely disparate prior probabilities, reducing training time. We demonstrate the usefulness of this method on a real world benchmark problem, that of predicting forest cover type given only cartographic data} }

Botulism has been recognised as a serious foodborne illness for over a century and, more recently, has become the subject of increased concern due to changing processing and consumption patterns associated with foods. In this respect quantitative risk assessment has an increasingly important role to play in assisting risk management and ensuring the safety of minimally processed foods and foods with extended shelf life.\par Bayesian Belief Networks are a type of expert system that integrates a graphical flow diagram like, representation of a hazard domain with a powerful technique for combining probabilities. This technique facilitates the accumulation of understanding and experience, for particular hazard domains, into computer tools that can be used to inspect risks and account for decisions.\par Analysis of the hazards associated with foodborne botulism involves Belief Network components that represent contamination processes, thermal death kinetics for spores, germination and growth of cells, toxin production and patterns of consumer behaviour, etc. These developments are discussed and three important aspects of the food safety information supply, complexity, dependency and uncertainty highlighted. The benefits associated with a Bayesian view of food safety assessment are illustrated by a Belief Network representation which supports, and prioritises, decisions and actions that (a) minimise the chances and extent of the detrimental events and (b) maximise opportunities for awareness and control.} }

A reformulation of ridge regression in dual variables permits a non-linear form of ridge regression via the well-known ``kernel trick''. Unfortunately, unlike support vector regression models, the resulting kernel expansion is typically fully dense. In this paper, we introduce a reduced rank kernel ridge regression (RRKRR) algorithm, capable of generating an optimally sparse kernel expansion that is functionally identical to that resulting from conventional kernel ridge regression (KRR). The proposed method is demonstrated to out-perform an alternative sparse kernel ridge regression algorithm on the Motorcycle and Boston Housing benchmarks} }

The leave-one-out cross-validation estimate of the conditional mean is used in fitting the model of the conditional variance in order to overcome the inherent bias in maximum likelihood estimates of the variance.
