Introduction

This book is about boosting, an approach to machine learning based on the idea of creating a highly accurate prediction rule by combining many relatively weak and inaccurate rules. Aremarkablyrichtheoryhasevolvedaroundboosting, withconnectionstoawiderangeof topics including statistics, game theory, convex optimization, and information geometry. In addition, AdaBoost and other boosting algorithms have enjoyed practical success with applications, for instance, in biology, vision, and speech processing.At various times in its history, boosting has been the subject of controversy for the mystery and paradox that it seems to present.

In writing this book, we have aimed to reach nearly anyone with an interest in boosting (aswellasanappropriate, butrelativelyminimal, technicalbackground), whetherstudents oradvancedresearchers,whethertrainedincomputerscience,statistics,orsomeotherfield. We specifically hope that the book will be useful as an educational tool, and have therefore included exercises in every chapter.Although centered on boosting, the book introduces a variety of topics relevant to machine learning generally, as well as to related fields such as game theory and information theory
