# SVM Exercise¶

A tutorial exercise for using different SVM kernels.

This exercise is used in the Using kernels part of the Supervised learning: predicting an output variable from high-dimensional observations section of the A tutorial on statistical-learning for scientific data processing.

X = iris.data
y = iris.target

X = X[y != 0, :2]
y = y[y != 0]

# fit the model

XX, YY = np.mgrid[x_min:x_max:200j, y_min:y_max:200j]
Z = clf.decision_function(np.c_[XX.ravel(), YY.ravel()])

# Put the result into a color plot
Z = Z.reshape(XX.shape)
plt.pcolormesh(XX, YY, Z > 0, cmap=plt.cm.Paired)
plt.contour(XX, YY, Z, colors=['k', 'k', 'k'], linestyles=['--', '-', '--'],
levels=[-.5, 0, .5])

plt.title(kernel)
plt.show()
