## Is SVM same as logistic regression?

Difference between SVM and Logistic Regression SVM works well with unstructured and semi-structured data like text and images while logistic regression works with already identified independent variables. SVM is based on geometrical properties of the data while logistic regression is based on statistical approaches.

## Why is SVM better than logistic regression?

SVM try to maximize the margin between the closest support vectors whereas logistic regression maximize the posterior class probability. For the kernel space, SVM is faster.

**Why is SVM used for image classification?**

The main advantage of SVM is that it can be used for both classification and regression problems. SVM draws a decision boundary which is a hyperplane between any two classes in order to separate them or classify them. SVM also used in Object Detection and image classification.

### Is SVM good for image classification?

If the SVM algorithm is very simple, using kernel is nontrivial. Then the best approach nowadays for image classification is deep neural network. Not because they are magic but mostly because of the use of convolutional layers. Let say that for 10 000 neurons in a network, 100 will do what SVM do: classification.

### Why is SVM more accurate?

SVMs offer similar accuracy to logistic regression using fewer transcript variables. SVMs also require less computational power than both random forests and logistic regression by using only the data points, termed support vectors, that define the boundary between classes.

**When should you use SVM?**

SVM can be used for classification (distinguishing between several groups or classes) and regression (obtaining a mathematical model to predict something). They can be applied to both linear and non linear problems. Until 2006 they were the best general purpose algorithm for machine learning.

#### Which algorithm is best for image classification?

Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) is the most popular neural network model being used for image classification problem. The big idea behind CNNs is that a local understanding of an image is good enough.

#### What is SVM good at?

SVM can be used for classification as well as pattern recognition purpose. Speech data, emotions and other such data classes can be used. We can use SVM when a number of features are high compared to a number of data points in the dataset. By using the correct kernel and setting an optimum set of parameters.

**What is the purpose of SVM?**

SVM is a supervised machine learning algorithm which can be used for classification or regression problems. It uses a technique called the kernel trick to transform your data and then based on these transformations it finds an optimal boundary between the possible outputs.

## What’s the difference between SVM and logistic regression?

• Logistic regression focuses on maximizing the probability of the data. The farther the data lies from the separating hyperplane (on the correct side), the happier LR is. • An SVM tries to find the separating hyperplane that maximizes the distance of the closest points to the margin (the support vectors).

## Which is better support vector machine or logistic regression?

The risk of overfitting is less in SVM, while Logistic regression is vulnerable to overfitting. Depending on the number of training sets (data)/features that you have, you can choose to use either logistic regression or support vector machine. 1.

**When to use SVM with a nonlinear kernel?**

Use SVM with a nonlinear kernel if you have reason to believe your data won’t be linearly separable (or you need to be more robust to outliers than LR will normally tolerate). Otherwise, just try logistic regression first and see how you do with that simpler model. If logistic regression fails you, try an SVM with a non-linear kernel like a RBF.

### Which is better, a SVM or a LR?

• LR can be (straightforwardly) used within Bayesian models. • SVMs don’t penalize examples for which the correct decision is made with sufficient confidence. This may be good for generalization. • SVMs have a nice dual form, giving sparse solutions when using the kernel trick (better scalability).
