In this homework, where we are using "hard-margin" SVM (the type covered in Lecture 14, as opposed to "soft-margin" which is covered next week) and with the data set being linearly separable by design, the in-sample error has to be zero. There has to be a bug somewhere. Hopefully others can share their experience with other QP packages as well.
Where everyone thinks alike, no one thinks very much
