If SVM (Support Vector Machines) is now considered as one of the best learning methods, it is still considered as slow. Here we propose a Matlab toolbox that enables the usage of SVM in a fast and simple way. This is done thanks to the projected gradient method which is well adapted to the problem: SimpleSVM We implement this algorithm with Matlab environment since it is user-friendly and efficient. The comparison between our solution and the state of the art in this domain SMO (Sequential Minimal Optimization) shows that in some case this solution is faster and has a lower complexity.
