An implementation of Exact Soft Confidence-Weighted Learning

Project description

The algorithm

This is an online supervised learning algorithm which utilizes all the four salient properties:

  • Large margin training
  • Confidence weighting
  • Capability to handle non-separable data
  • Adaptive margin

The paper is here.

SCW has 2 formulations of its algorithm which are SCW-I and SCW-II. They can be accessed like below.

scw.SCW1(C, ETA)
scw.SCW2(C, ETA)

C and ETA are hyperparameters.


from scw import SCW1, SCW2

scw = SCW1(C=1.0, ETA=1.0), y)
y_pred = scw.perdict(X)
X and y are 2-dimensional and 1-dimensional array respectively.
X is a set of data vectors. Each row of X represents a feature vector.
y is a set of labels corresponding with X.


  1. This package performs only binary classification, not multiclass classification.
  2. Training labels must be 1 or -1. No other labels allowed.
