Real Boosting a la Carte with an Application to Boosting Oblique Decision Tree


In the past ten years, boosting has become a major field of machine learning and classification. This paper brings contributions to its theory and algorithms. We first unify a well-known top-down decision tree induction algorithm due to [Kearns and Mansour, 1999], and discrete AdaBoost [Freund and Schapire, 1997], as two versions of a same higher-level… (More)
