Pocket Algorithm
 
Hi, all, i am currently coding pocket algorithm. However, since we are using it on a non-separable data, the PLA is never going to converge and thus run into infinite loops. Do i just set a break point or it there any other stoping conditions?

AND BTW, hw1 specifies that we could only use the training data, but the first problem asks us to plot the train data and test set data.

As I understand it, the idea of the pocket algorithm is that you save the best weights, and stop at an arbitrary point, say after 10,000 iterations. Then return that best weight. I think part1 of the homework is saying that you are only supposed to train off the training set, but then plot both sets with the separator.
