## Description

We derive SVMs from a geometric perspective as well as the regularization perspective. Optimality and duality is introduced to demonstrate how large SVMs can be solved. A comparison is made between SVMs and RLSC. We introduce Regularized Least Squares regression and classification.## Slides
