In this paper we show how to boost products of simple base learners. Similarly to trees, we call the base learner as a subroutine but in an iterative rather than recursive fashion. The main advantage of the proposed method is its simplicity and computational efficiency. On benchmark datasets, our boosted products of decision stumps clearly outperform boosted trees, and on the MNIST dataset the algorithm achieves the second best result among no-domain-knowledge algorithms after deep belief nets… CONTINUE READING
