Day 19 = Day -11, Tuesday, Oct 30

I have cleaned these up a bit more: delete your pngs folder and redownload pngs.zip

How would you use a linear classifier to separate this data?

Exercise: use Inkscape to draw the "best" line separating red and blue classes.

How to actually find a linear function that separates the classes?

Exercise: What are Q, p, G, h, A, b for our problem?

**Homework:** Finish off the setup of the cvxopt implementation to find the maximum margin linear classifier
for our two-class character recognition problem, solve it, and then draw the line (hyperplane) corresponding
to the solution on one of the plots of the dots in the feature space (plane). Have your plot ready to show
at the beginning of class on Thursday.
