The generalization performance of the SVM classifier depends mainly on the VC dimension and the dimensionality of the data. By reducing the VC dimension of the SVM classifier, its generalization performance is expected to increase. In the present paper, we argue that the VC dimension of SVM classifier can be reduced by applying bootstrapping and dimensionality reduction techniques. Experimental results showed that bootstrapping the original data and bootstrapping the projected (dimensionally reduced) data improved the performance of the SVM classifier.
