Incremental Training

A Bayes Point Machine is trained incrementally using the TrainIncremental module, both in binary and multi-class classification. The TrainIncremental module reads a serialized trained classifier and a training set and returns an incrementally trained classifier, which can then be used to make predictions or train once more (incrementally).

The TrainIncremental module has the following command-line arguments:

Required arguments

Optional arguments

For more information about the command-line arguments, see Settings. A more detailed explanation of incremental training is available here.
