Ruby SVM text classifier

There are several useful Ruby gems/libraries for using Support Vector Machines (SVM) and another to convert text into SVM style feature vectors. I recently packaged up what I needed with a Ruby script to fold the data for testing, etc.

Here is the github repository.

It took me a short while to get everything working together so hopefully this will save you several minutes of extra effort if you want to use SVM for text classification.

My new book "Power Java" is released today

I recommend that you look through the github repo for my book to see what I cover and if it looks interesting please please consider buying my new book on leanpub.

I cover a wide range of topics including machine learning, linked data, network programming techniques for IoT, and some ideas for knowledge management using cloud data.
