Support Vector Machine Testing (Gaussian RBF SVM)
Test 1:
Classification of one document from the masquerade chat logs –
(y8g5C6.xml – from /masqchatlogs/Set 1/Yr8) against a training set of:
•
The Extended Brennan-Greenstadt corpus
•
My own SET document survey based corpus
Totalling approx. 1893 documents
Hypothesis:
The document would be classified to class 0, representing Imitation.
Result:
The document was classified to class 0, with 100% accuracy?
Document class
0

Total nSV = 1368
Cross Validation Accuracy = 51.2031%
Conclusion
Since the average accuracy of classification was only slightly above random chance, my model wasn’t
worth using at this time. This was probably due to the set of features I had used to distinguish
between the classes of text - obfuscation and imitation. So, I decided to increase the amount of
features included, in the document representation/feature set per document, in order to specialise
my model, to detecting obfuscation and imitation, as it was currently too general.

Cross Validation Accuracy = 53.7213%
Conclusion
Due to normalizing my features, the cross validation accuracy of my classifier, improved by 2.5182%.
This was a good result, but the accuracy needed to be of a much greater level, before it would be
worth using the classifier. After this, I decided to include more data in my classifier’s model:

Masquerade chat logs (Internet messaging)
o Class 0
And a couple of features to get information out of that data:


Proportion of incorrectly spelt words
Punctuation level/count
Implementation of ‘Proportion of incorrectly spelt words’:
This required a way to track spelling errors, and therefore I would need some kind of
dictionary corpus, to compare words to. This is when I found the ‘big.txt’ corpus file, put
together by Peter Norvig. It contains text from Project Gutenberg’s public domain books,
and lists of frequent words from Wikitionary and the British National Corpus [1].
[1] Source: http://norvig.com/spell-correct.html
This corpus seemed to be a great choice, alone, for detecting spelling errors. But, I had
noticed that the SET emails I had previously tested with, contained slang, and grammar
mistakes, which wouldn’t be picked up by the corpus. So, an extra corpus would be
required:
[EXTRA: Birkbeck spelling error corpus, by Roger Mitton.
It contains text from misspellings in children’s tests, short novels, and excerpts of freewriting by students of adult-literacy. The range of time that it spans, goes from the early 20th
century to the 80’s. Source: http://www.ota.ox.ac.uk/headers/0643.xml]
