    Abstract: A framework for comparison and optimization of classifiers and features for classification of targets includes preparing training and testing sets, applying a classifier to the training set to achieve a distinctly trained classifier for each classifier applied, applying each resulting trained classifier to the testing data set, selecting an optimal classifier, and applying the optimal classifier to the target. The framework is used to optimally classify a physical representation of a target, such as a document, news article, or advertisement. The framework allows for targeted advertisements to be directed to consumers based on user preferences learned from user activities across a network.
