Description:
Boosting is an approach to machine learning based on the idea of creating a highly accurate predictor by combining many weak and inaccurate 'rules of thumb'. A remarkably rich theory has evolved around boosting, with connections to a range of topics, including statistics, game theory, convex optimization, and information geometry.
