Kernel Functions For Machine Learning

PERPETUAL ENIGMA

You must have heard the term ‘kernel’ floating around quite a few times. People from many different backgrounds use it in different contexts. The thing is that this term has been applied to different things in different domains. When we talk about operating systems, we talk about which kernel is being used. Kernel is also used extensively in parallel computing and in the GPU domain, where it is the function which is called repetitively on a computing grid. It has a few other meanings in different hardware related programming fields. But in this post, I will discuss kernels as applied to machine learning. Kernels are used in machine learning to transform the data so that the classification becomes easier. One common thing in all these different definitions of the term ‘kernel’ is that it is being used as a bridge between two things. In operating systems, it is the bridge…
