Document classification has already been widely studied. In fact, some studies compared feature selection techniques or feature
space transformation whereas some others compared the performance of different algorithms. Recently, following the risinginterest towards the Support Vector Machine, various studies showed that the SVM outperforms other classification algorithms.So should we just not bother about other classification algorithms and opt always for SVM?
