A linear classifier separating two classes of points (squares and circles) in two dimensions.

The decision boundary divides the space into two sets depending on the sign of f(x) = 〈w,x〉+b. The grayscale level represents the value of the discriminant function f(x): dark for low values and a light shade for high values.
