How to use SVM Classifier and Regressor in Python?

This recipe helps you use SVM Classifier and Regressor in Python

Recipe Objective

Have you ever tried to use SVM (support vector machine) models ie. regressor or classifier. In this we will using both for different dataset.

So this recipe is a short example of how we can use SVM Classifier and Regressor in Python.

Step 1 - Import the library

from sklearn import datasets from sklearn import metrics from sklearn.model_selection import train_test_split import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import seaborn as sns plt.style.use("ggplot") from sklearn.svm import SVC, SVR

Here we have imported various modules like datasets, SVC, SVR and test_train_split from differnt libraries. We will understand the use of these later while using it in the in the code snipet.
For now just have a look on these imports.

Step 2 - Setup the Data for classifier

Here we have used datasets to load the inbuilt cancer dataset and we have created objects X and y to store the data and the target value respectively. dataset = datasets.load_breast_cancer() X = dataset.data y = dataset.target X_train, X_test, y_train, y_test = train_test_split(X, y, test_size=0.25)

Step 3 - Model and its Score

Here, we are using Support Vector Classifier (SVC) as a Machine Learning model to fit the data. model = SVC() model.fit(X_train, y_train) print(model) Now we have predicted the output by passing X_test and also stored real target in expected_y. expected_y = y_test predicted_y = model.predict(X_test) Here we have printed classification report and confusion matrix for the classifier. print(metrics.classification_report(expected_y, predicted_y)) print(metrics.confusion_matrix(expected_y, predicted_y))

Step 4 - Setup the Data for regressor

Here we have used datasets to load the inbuilt boston dataset and we have created objects X and y to store the data and the target value respectively. dataset = datasets.load_boston() X = dataset.data y = dataset.target X_train, X_test, y_train, y_test = train_test_split(X, y, test_size=0.25)

Step 5 - Model and its Score

Here, we are using Support Vector Regressor (SVR) as a Machine Learning model to fit the data. model = SVR() model.fit(X_train, y_train) print(model) Now we have predicted the output by passing X_test and also stored real target in expected_y. expected_y = y_test predicted_y = model.predict(X_test) Here we have printed r2 score and mean squared log error for the Regressor. print(metrics.r2_score(expected_y, predicted_y)) print(metrics.mean_squared_log_error(expected_y, predicted_y)) plt.figure(figsize=(10,10)) sns.regplot(expected_y, predicted_y, fit_reg=True, scatter_kws={"s": 100})

As an output we get:

SVC(C=1.0, cache_size=200, class_weight=None, coef0=0.0,
  decision_function_shape="ovr", degree=3, gamma="auto_deprecated",
  kernel="rbf", max_iter=-1, probability=False, random_state=None,
  shrinking=True, tol=0.001, verbose=False)

              precision    recall  f1-score   support

           0       0.00      0.00      0.00        47
           1       0.67      1.00      0.80        96

   micro avg       0.67      0.67      0.67       143
   macro avg       0.34      0.50      0.40       143
weighted avg       0.45      0.67      0.54       143


[[ 0 47]
 [ 0 96]]

SVR(C=1.0, cache_size=200, coef0=0.0, degree=3, epsilon=0.1,
  gamma="auto_deprecated", kernel="rbf", max_iter=-1, shrinking=True,
  tol=0.001, verbose=False)
