In recent years, massive quantities of business and research data have been collected and stored, partly due to the plummeting cost of data storage. Much interest has therefore arisen in how to mine this data to provide useful information. Data mining as a discipline shares much in common with machine learning and statistics, as all of these endeavors aim to make predictions about data as well as to better understand the patterns that can be found in a particular dataset. The support vector machine (SVM) is a current machine learning technique that performs quite well in solving common data mining problems.
