General retrieval problems require multioutput (and potentially nonlinear) regression methods. M-SVR extends the single-output SVR to multiple outputs maintaining the advantages of a sparse and compact solution by using an $epsilon$-insensitive cost function.

The test finishes when the whole likelihood ratio interval crosses one of the thresholds and reduces to the classical test as the number of samples to describe the hypotheses tend to infinity.

We consider the problem of sequential hypothesis testing when the exact pdfs are not known but instead a set of iid samples are used to describe the hypotheses. We modify the classical test by introducing a likelihood ratio interval which accommodates the uncertainty in the pdfs. The test finishes when the whole likelihood ratio interval crosses one of the thresholds and reduces to the classical test as the number of samples to describe the hypotheses tend to infinity. We illustrate the performance of this test in a medical image application related to tuberculosis diagnosis. We show in this example how the test confidence level can be accurately determined.
