We propose a variant of two SVM regression algorithms expressly tailored in order to exploit additional information summarizing the relevance of each data item, as a measure of its relative importance w.r.t. the remaining examples. These variants, enclosing the original formulations when all data items have the same relevance, are preliminary tested on synthetic and real-world data sets. The obtained results outperform standard SVM approaches to regression if evaluated in light of the above mentioned additional information about data quality.
