This paper presents a four-step training method for increasing the efficiency of support vector machine (SVM). First, a SVM is initially trained by all the training samples, thereby producing a number of support vectors. Second, the support vectors, which make the hypersurface highly convoluted, are excluded from the training set. Third, the SVM is re-trained only by the remaining samples in the training set, Finally, the complexity of the trained SVM is further reduced by approximating the separation hypersurface with a subset of the support vectors. Compared to the initially trained SVM by all samples, the efficiency of the finally-trained SVM is highly improved, without system degradation.
