We want to find a line/curve (in 2D) or a manifold (in n-D) that divides the class from each other. This is a type of
Consider a simple case of classification task, in which the two classes of points are well separated. We can find region in space which best separates the data into two classes. The
Support Vectors in Support Vector Machine are the (hyper)planes which lie at the edge of the individual classes. This idea is much easier to understand from 2D perspective.
