Support Vector Machine (SVM) Explained

Support Vector Machine (SVM) is one of the most powerful classifiers in Machine learning. At the same time, it is one of the most difficult to understand.

Dot Product

Dot product between vectors results into scalar number and it shows similarity between those vectors.
