The variable $\eta$ plays the role of the learning rate $\eta$ employed in the perceptron algorithm and $\delta \alpha$ is the proposed magnitude of change in $\alpha_i$. | The variable $\eta$ plays the role of the learning rate $\eta$ employed in the perceptron algorithm and $\delta \alpha$ is the proposed magnitude of change in $\alpha_i$. | ||

We note that the adatron tries to maintain a //sparse// representation in terms of the training examples by keeping many $\alpha_i$ equal to zero. The adatron converges to a special case of the SVM algorithm that we will learn later in the semester; this algorithm tries to maximize the margin with which each example is classified, which is captured by the variable $\gamma$ in the algorithm (notice that the magnitude of change proposed for each $\alpha_i$ becomes smaller as the margin increases towards 1). | We note that the adatron tries to maintain a //sparse// representation in terms of the training examples by keeping many $\alpha_i$ equal to zero.
