Kernel is the heart of kernel based learning. To choose an appropriate parameter for a specific kernel is an important research issue in the data mining area. In this paper, we propose an automatic parameter selection approach for polynomial kernel. The algorithm is tested on support vector machines (SVM). The parameter selection is considered on the basis of prior information of the data distribution and Bayesian inference. The new approach is tested on different sizes of benchmark datasets with binary class problems as well as multi class classification problems.
