This thesis describes the expansion of the machine learning algorithm known as the two-layered Sup- port Vector Machine (SVM) (Wiering, Schutten, Millea, Meijster, and Schomaker, 2013) in order to improve the performance of this system. First, a de- scription of the standard SVM is given, followed by an overview of the two-layered SVM. Then another layer of SVMs is added to the two-layered SVM. The mathematical implications of this expansion will be described in detail. The metaparameters of the three-layered SVM are then found by using a combination of particle swarm optimisation and the UCB bandit algorithm. Experimental results show that the three-layered SVM outperforms a single- layered SVM. However, these results do not show an increase in performance compared to the two- layered SVM.
