AFNI file: README.3dsvm.realtime
How to configure the 3dsvm plugin for real-time experiments using plugout_drive:
plugout_drive is a command-line program that can be used to drive (control)
AFNI (please see README.driver for more details) and allows the user to automate
the configuration of the 3dsvm plugin for real-time experiments.
Using plugout_drive to set up the 3dsvm plugin for real-time experiments is
very similar to the usage of the command-line program 3dsvm for off-line
SVM analysis. Most of the 3dsvm (and SVM-Light) command-line options can be
used in conjunction with plugout_drive.
plugout_drive -com '3DSVM [options]'
plugout_drive -com '3DSVM -rt_train -trainlabels run1_categories.1D ...
-mask mask+orig -model model_run1'
plugout_drive -com '3DSVM -rt_test -model model_run1+orig ...
-stim_ip 111.222.333.444 -stim_port 5000'
N.B.: -rt_train and -rt_test serve as flags for the real-time training
and testing modes, respectively. No brik or nifti file is
specified since it is expected from the scanner (or rtfeedme).
N.B. The plugout_drive options are almost identical to the "normal" 3dsvm usage,
(see 3dsvm -help) but restricted to 2-class classification and regression.
Coming soon (or someday when asked): multi-class classification
