Mainstream sentence classification algorithms rely on a single word vector model to obtain the feature vector representation of text, which leads to insufficient text mapping ability. Therefore, a multi-kernel learning method is used to fuse multiple text representations based on different word vectors to improve the accuracy of sentence classification. In the process of fusing different kernel functions, traditional kernel function coefficient optimization methods often lead to long training time and difficulty in finding a local optimum. To address this problem, a new kernel function coefficient optimization method that continuously approximates the optimal kernel function coefficient value based on parameter space segmentation and breadth first search was developed. In this study, a support vector machine (SVM) was used as a classifier to perform classification experiments on seven text datasets, and the experimental results showed that the multi-kernel learning classification results were significantly better than those of single-kernel learning. Moreover, the proposed optimization method performed better than traditional methods with less training cost.
