Most machine learning systems for binary classification are trained using algorithms that maximize the accuracy and assume that false positives and false negatives are equally bad. However, in many applications, these two types of errors may have very different costs. In this paper, we consider the problem of controlling the false positive rate on SVMs, since its traditional formulation does not offer...
