Default Re: Support Vector Machines

Thanks everyone for your replies; I feel better.
Now I have to do the homework, though, and using a quadratic programming package that I know little about is a little scary, especially the way the answers are entered. General question on the homework: Has anyone found a way to test one's answers on these programming assignments, prior to submitting? It's exciting to submit, but I could do with a little more certainty! I'm the lazy sort of programmer - usually I debug afterwards, by seeing if the answer is right.

In this case, I guess the thing to do is graph the result: It should be obvious by eye (at least for the low-N case) if the weighting always falls "in the middle".
