Support vector machines (SVM) are machine learning tools originally developed in the field of artificial intelligence to perform both classification and regression. In this paper, we show how SVM can be used to determine the most relevant quantities to characterize the confinement transition from low to high confinement regimes in tokamak plasmas. A set of 27 signals is used as starting point. The signals are discarded one by one until an optimal number of relevant waveforms is reached, which is the best tradeoff between keeping a limited number of quantities and not loosing essential information. The method has been applied to a database of 749 JET discharges and an additional database of 150 JET discharges has been used to test the results obtained.

    Age is a human attribute which grows alongside an individual. Estimating human age is quite difficult for machine as well as humans, however there has been and are still ongoing efforts towards machine estimation of human age to a high level of accuracy. In a bid to improve the accuracy of age...

    Although the solution of support vector machine (SVM) is relatively sparse, it makes unnecessarily liberal use of basis functions since the number of support vectors required typically grows linearly with the size of the training set. In this paper, we present a simple post-processing method to...
