      Description

      After discussed with guys in this community, I decided to re-implement a Sequential SVM solver based on Pegasos for Mahout platform (mahout command line style, SparseMatrix and SparseVector etc.) , Eventually, it will support HDFS.

      Sequential SVM based on Pegasos.

      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Currently, this package provides (Features):
      -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      1. Sequential SVM linear solver, include training and testing.

      2. Support general file system and HDFS right now.

      3. Supporting large-scale data set training.
      Because of the Pegasos only need to sample certain samples, this package supports to pre-fetch
      the certain size (e.g. max iteration) of samples to memory.
      For example: if the size of data set has 100,000,000 samples, due to the default maximum iteration is 10,000,
      as the result, this package only random load 10,000 samples to memory.

      4. Sequential Data set testing, then the package can support large-scale data set both on training and testing.

      5. Supporting parallel classification (only testing phrase) based on Map-Reduce framework.

      6. Supoorting Multi-classfication based on Map-Reduce framework (whole parallelized version).

      7. Supporting Regression.
