When doing fitting, I always come across code like

clf = svm.SVC(kernel='linear', C=1).fit(X_train, y_train)


What does clf stands for? I googled around but didn't find any clues.

In terms of machine learning, Clf is an estimator instance, which is used to store model.

We use clf to store trained model values, which are further used to predict value, based on the previously stored weights.
