  • The main and important contribution of this paper is in establishing a connection between boosting, a newcomer to the statistics scene, and additive models. One of the main properties of boosting that has made it interesting to statisticians and others is its relative (but not complete) immunity to overrtting. As pointed out by the authors, the current paper does not address this issue. Leo Breiman 1] tried to explain this behaviour in terms of bias and variance. In our paper with Bartlett and… CONTINUE READING
