Median regression analysis has robustness properties which make it an attractive alternative to regression based on the mean. Support vector machine (SVM) is used widely in real-world regression tasks. In this paper, we propose a new SV median regression based on check function. And we illustrate how this proposed SVM performs and compare this with the SVM based on absolute deviation loss function.
