    © 2017 Elsevier B.V. A post-processing technique for Support Vector Machine (SVM) algorithms for binary classification problems is introduced in order to obtain adequate accuracy on a priority class (labelled as a positive ...
  • Improving SVM classification on imbalanced datasets by introducing a new bias 

    Núñez Castro, Haydemar; Gonzalez Abril, Luis; Angulo Bahón, Cecilio (2017-10-14)
    Article
    Open Access
    Support Vector Machine (SVM) learning from imbalanced datasets, as well as most learning machines, can show poor performance on the minority class because SVMs were designed to induce a model based on the overall error. ...
  • Guest editorial: sensorimotor contingencies for cognitive robotics

    Article
    Open Access
    The sensorimotor approach to cognition states, that the key to bring semantics to the world of a robot, requires making the robot learn the relation between the actions that the robot performs and the change it experiences ...
