Dear Community,


I am a new user. I have an xls file which contains 159 rows and 13 columns. 

1st column contains values of biological activity (Y) and the others contain(molecular descriptors)  (Xi)

I would like to do Regression for building model using Support Vector Machine LibSVM and PSO.

Best Regards,

    You will need a Read Excel, Set Role, Cross Validation, LibSVM, Apply Model and Performance operators as a starting point for your process. Something like this below:

    To expand a bit on the topic: what are the big differences between the SVM operator and the LibSVM one? When would you use one instead of the other?
