Ancient glass is extremely susceptible to weathering due to the environment in which it was buried. In the process of weathering, there is a massive exchange of interior elements with those of the environment, resulting in the compositional proportions of the glass being affected, thereby interfering with the accurate judgment of its category. In this paper, aiming at the problem of ancient glass products, using contingency table chi-square test, linear binary classification support vector machine, K-means++ clustering algorithm and other methods, the composition analysis and identification model of glass is established, and the problem of classifying unknown samples is solved, and did a model test and sensitivity analysis.
