Default Re: Q14 - on using LIBSVM : C parameter?

Good catch, thanks! I had the same problem.

One might assume (wrongly as it turns out) that it does hard margin svm by default but of course it does soft margin by default as that is probably more useful in practice.

Also I guess, if you choose enough of a large C as you suggest, SVM should have no trouble to deal with such noiseless data, similar to the example we had in class.
