##### Abstract

Suppose you are given some dataset drawn from an underlying probability distribution ¤ and you want to estimate a “simple” subset ¥ of input space such that the probability that a test point drawn from ¤ lies outside of ¥ equals some a priori specified ¦ between § and ¨. We propose a method to approach this problem by trying to estimate a function © which is positive on ¥ and negative on the complement. The functional form of © is given by a kernel expansion in terms of a potentially small subset of the training data; it is regularized by controlling the length of the weight vector in an associated feature space. We provide a theoretical analysis of the statistical performance of our algorithm. The algorithm is a natural extension of the support vector algorithm to the case of unlabelled data.
