"SVM and weights"
I was wondering if it is possible to apply weights (via "scale by weights") to a set of data before loading it into the SVM to begin learning from the data? Or does the SVM already apply its own weights, thus not allowing my to use any other weights?
If this is possible, how would i go about doing it? I believe i should apply weights after the SVM has learned all the data, but I'm not sure.
I wish to use the SVM to model my data and help me predict the label attribute, but then also use my own set of weights to further enhance the model.
