Compact multiclass model for support vector machines (SVMs) and other classifiers

`CompactClassificationECOC`

is a compact version of the multiclass
error-correcting output codes (ECOC) model. The compact classifier does not include the data
used for training the multiclass ECOC model. Therefore, you cannot perform certain tasks, such
as cross-validation, using the compact classifier. Use a compact multiclass ECOC model for
tasks such as classifying new data (`predict`

).

You can create a `CompactClassificationECOC`

model in two ways:

Create a compact ECOC model from a trained

`ClassificationECOC`

model by using the`compact`

object function.Create a compact ECOC model by using the

`fitcecoc`

function and specifying the`'Learners'`

name-value pair argument as`'linear'`

,`'kernel'`

, a`templateLinear`

or`templateKernel`

object, or a cell array of such objects.
