Abstract
:

Recent work on statistical machine learning has shown the advantages of discriminative
classifiers such as Support Vector Machines (SVM) in a range of applications, in
cluding
seizure detection. In this talk, basics of an SVM classifier will be given followed by
description of the SVM
-
based neonatal seizure detector developed at UCC. An
alternative developed at UCC which is based on Gaussian mixture model classifier will

be also described and the comparison of performance between systems based on
discriminative SVM and generative GMM classifiers will be proposed.
