Publ. Version/Full Text
Kernel based methods have turned out to be very successful in many elds of data analysis and pattern recognition. The intuitive idea behind these methods is the embedding of the data into a Hilbert space. Linear approaches can be chosen within this Hilbert space, while the embedding itself provides a way to deal with non-linearity inherent in the data. The talk will be centered around these ideas, trying to show how the role of the kernel involved is motivated from di erent points of views. Properties of the kernel will then re ect in the tools at hand to analyse the method and derive qualitative statements concerning its performance.
