In this paper we describe a new training algorithm which can be used for both classification and regression problems. The Neural Support Vector Machine (NSVM) is a hybrid system whose architecture includes both neural networks and support vector machines (SVMs). The output of the NSVM is given by SVMs who take a central feature layer as their input. This feature layer is in turn the output of a number of neural networks who are trained to minimize the objectives of the SVMs. Since the system is able to handle multiple outputs, it can also be used as a dimensionality reduction method. The results of the conducted experiments indicate that the system performs on par with state-of-the-art classification and regression algorithms. NSVMs with a large feature layer seem able to outperform autoencoders on dimensionality reduction.
