Kernel methods in bioengineering, signal and image by Gustavo Camps-Valls, Jose Luis Rojo-Alvarez, Manel

By Gustavo Camps-Valls, Jose Luis Rojo-Alvarez, Manel Martinez-Ramon

"In the decade, a few strong kernel-based studying equipment were proposed within the desktop studying neighborhood: help vector machines (SVMs), kernel fisher discriminant (KFD) research, kernel PCA/ICA, kernel mutual info, kernel k-means, and kernel ARMA. profitable functions of those algorithms were said in lots of fields, reminiscent of medication, bioengineering, communications, audio and picture processing, and computational biology and bioinformatics. Kernel tools in Bioengineering, sign and photograph Processing covers real-world purposes, comparable to computational biology, textual content categorization, time sequence prediction, interpolation, method id, speech reputation, snapshot de-noising, snapshot coding, category, and segmentation. Kernel equipment in Bioengineering, sign and photo Processing encompasses the tremendous box of kernel equipment from a multidisciplinary process through featuring chapters devoted to model and use of kernel tools within the chosen components of bioengineering, sign processing and communications, and photo processing."
