1. Introduction NIR Hyperspectral Imaging System  Hyperspectral imaging of meat in NIR spectral ranges To predict meat quality of Freshness Tenderness Fat Protein Moisture content Image processing and machine learning techniques like neural network are used for prediction & classification. Nearly non-invasive and accurate
1. Introduction –Existing Work NIR sampling over 700-2500nm is preferred to allow spectra acquired in three modes, reflection, transmission and transflection, and also enables response to key food components like C-H, O-H and N-H molecular bonds. 1) Qiao et al  used selected bands on a trained neural network for prediction of drip loss, pH and surface colour of pork, and the prediction correlation coefficients are 0.77, 0.56 and 0.86. 2) Eimasry  employed PCA for data reduction and partial least square regression for prediction of surface colour, tenderness and pH of beef. The correlations are 0.88, 0.73 and 0.81; 3) Carigie  used similar linear regression on beef data captured under commercial conditions and the correlation is less than 35% for surface colour, pH and M. longissimus dorsi tenderness.
2. Feature Selection – Spectral Profiles Usually the spectral profiles are used as features yet some spectral bands or their combinations are more distinguishable than others thus feature selection is desirable.
2. Feature Selection 1) Spectral redundancy makes it possible for feature selection and data reduction; 2) Band selection is not used here as though it is found to yield good results [1, 10]. Instead, principal component analysis (PCA) is utilised as it is a standard one which has been integrated in many existing development tools like Matlab. 3) We apply PCA to the original spectral data and then select the dominant principal components as new features for training and prediction.
3. Machine Learning for Prediction 1) Linear regression and its variations are widely used for prediction of relevant parameters, such as partial least square regression (PSLR) in , the general linear models (GLM) in  and multi-linear regression (MLR) in . 2) Since the parametric models are not necessary linear, machine learning approaches is preferred where support vector machine (SVM) is employed. 3) SVM enables effective regression and prediction for both linear and non-linear cases and it general outperforms neural network in machine learning.
3. Support Vector Machine (SVM) Parameters w and b respectively refer to a weight vector and a bias that can be determined in the training process through minimizing a cost function, and Φ refers to a (nonlinear) mapping to map the input vector x into a higher dimensional space for easily separated by a linear hyperplane as illustrated below. This figure illustrates the concept of SVM where a non-linearly-separable problem becomes linearly separable in the mapped feature space.
3. SVM- Kernel Functions & Evaluation LibSVM is used for the implementation of the SVM in both training and prediction. The correlation is defined to the right for evaluation.
4. Experimental Datasets 1)Our data is the one used in  captured under commercial conditions; 2)The data is acquired using a NIR spectrometer at Quality Meat Scotland  and the spectrum ranges from 350nm to 1800nm with a spectral resolution of 1nm; 3)The mean and median values in the absorbance form from 10 repetitive scans are recorded for processing. 4)The data samples are 234 in total. 5)A 10-fold cross validation scheme is used for evaluation.

Experimental Results CorrelationlinearpolynomialRBF Number of principal components = 13 0.2980.4500.396 Number of principal components = 20 0.3050.5330.288 Table 1: Correlation of predicted M. longissimus dorsi shear force values to the ground truth under various kernel functions and number of principal components.
4. Analysis of Results 1)Polynomial kernel function produces the best results; and increasing the number of principal components helps to improve the prediction. 2)Linear kernel function and RBF kernel function tend to yield much worse results. Increasing the number of principal components does not certainly improve the results from RBF kernel, though slightly better results can be found for linear kernel. 3)This on one hand indicates that polynomial kernel function seems the best choice for this application. On the other hand, it explains why linear models used in  generated the poor results.
4. Experimental Results Fig. 3. Correlation values between the ground truth and the extracted principal components. For some principal components, the correlation values are as high as 0.2- 0.25! It is possible to choose useful principal components for data prediction, and this will be investigated in the next stage.
4. Conclusions 1) We have applied SVM for data prediction in food quality analysis and found polynomial kernel to yield the best results; 2) Using PCA for dimension reduction, we have significantly improved the prediction of M. longissimus dorsi shear force correlation values from less than 0.35 to about 0.533; 3) How to apply our approach to predict other parameters and also to evaluate the possibility in choosing principal components for prediction will be investigated in the near future.
