Package

weka.filters.unsupervised.attribute

Synopsis

Converts the given set of predictor variables into a kernel matrix. The class value remains unchanged, as long as the preprocessing filter doesn't change it.
By default, the data is preprocessed with the Center filter, but the user can choose any filter (NB: one must be careful that the filter does not alter the class attribute unintentionally). With weka.filters.AllFilter the preprocessing gets disabled.

For more information regarding preprocessing the data, see:

K.P. Bennett, M.J. Embrechts: An Optimization Perspective on Kernel Partial Least Squares Regression. In: Advances in Learning Theory: Methods, Models and Applications, 227-249, 2003.
