Comparison of Naïve Bayes and SVM algorithms at training Level 0. The performance of the Naïve Bayes and SVM classifiers was evaluated with 10-fold cross-validation. As is shown in the ROC curve, the SVM classifier outperformed the Naïve Bayes classifier on curatability predictions for the cross-validation dataset of 89,884 abstracts. The AUC value for the SVM classifier was 0.899 and the AUC value for the Naïve Bayes classifier was 0.854. At the 5% false negative rate for the curatability decision, the SVM classifier had a true positive rate of 41.4% and the Naïve Bayes classifier had a true positive rate of 33.5%.
