Exercise 8.5

The given data file (Ex8_5_NLC) (in Matlab format or text format) contains two predictors x1 and x2 and predictand data y (400 observations), with y taking on the value of 0 or 1. Develop a nonlinear classification model of y as a function of x1 and x2. Briefly describe the approach taken (e.g. MLP, SVM, etc.). Forecast ytest using the new test predictor data x1test and x2test provided (100 observations).
