Biological Data Analysis using Incremental Kernel Machines: A Comparative Study



Kernel Machines, and Support Vector Machines in particular, are state-of-the-art performers in the current machine learning paradigm. However, traditional implementations work in a batch fashion, limiting its application. Recent developments conducted to incremental algorithms that further decompose the learning process, which enable the application to large scale datasets, a common feature in biological data analysis. This work presents a set of experiments in order to evaluate the performance of incremental algorithms using five biological benchmark datasets, opening the possibility to further extend these incremental approaches to large scale problems.
