Kernel Method - What is the kernel method trick?


In order to avoid expensive high-dimensional operations, the kernel trick entails finding an appropriate kernel function k(xn,xm) that maps to the inner product in a higher-dimensional space. Consider the equation k(xn,xm)=(xn⊤xm)2. The kernel trick just makes the lifting trick more affordable.
