Thanks again!

The original (binary classification) SVM is pretty mature from both the theoretical side and the practical side for mid-scale data. Large-scale learning with SVM remains to be a challenging research direction. In recent years, my observation is that people work more on studying other SVM-related formulations for different machine learning tasks.

Hope this helps.
