We propose hashing to facilitate efﬁcient kernels. This generalizes previous work using sampling and we show a principled way to compute the kernel matrix for data streams and sparse feature spaces. Moreover, we give deviation bounds from the exact kernel matrix. This has applications to
estimation on strings and graphs.
