Abstract / Description:In this paper we build upon the Multiple Kernel Learning (MKL) framework
and in particular on [1] which generalized it to infinitely many
kernels. We rewrite the problem in the standard MKL formulation which
leads to a Semi-Infinite Program. We devise a new algorithm to solve it
(Infinite Kernel Learning, IKL). The IKL algorithm is applicable to both
the finite and infinite case and we find it to be faster and more stable
than SimpleMKL [2]. Furthermore we present the first large scale
comparison of SVMs to MKL on a variety of benchmark datasets, also
comparing IKL. The results show two things: a) for many datasets there
is no benefit in using MKL/IKL instead of the SVM classifier, thus the
flexibility of using more than one kernel seems to be of no use, b) on
some datasets IKL yields massive increases in accuracy over SVM/MKL due
to the possibility of using a largely increased kernel set. For those
cases parameter selection through Cross-Validation or MKL is not applicable.
