XGBoost: Enhancement Over Gradient Boosting Machines
XGBoost Gradient Boosting. In the first part of this discussion on XGBoost, I set the foundation for understanding the basic components of boosting. In brief, boosting uses sequences of decision trees that seek to reduce the residuals of the prior tree. In other words, each new tree uses the residual... Read more
Gradient Boosting and XGBoost
In this article, I provide an overview of the statistical learning technique called gradient boosting, and also the popular XGBoost implementation, the darling of Kaggle challenge competitors. In general, gradient boosting is a supervised machine learning method for classification as well as regression problems. The overarching strategy involves producing a... Read more

Leveraging Time-Series Segmentation and Machine Learning for Better Forecasting Accuracy
Several papers discussed the importance of segmenting time series into groups and modeling each group separately to enhance forecasting accuracy overall. But what does this look like in practice? At the end of the day, why not use an AutoML package (Automated Machine Learning) or an Auto-Forecasting tool and let... Read more
State of Machine Learning Survey Results Part Two
Last week, we posted the first article recapping our recent machine learning survey. There, we talked about some of the results, such as what programming languages machine learning practitioners use, what frameworks they use, and what areas of the field they’re interested in.
