#Deepboost modeling.

Travis-CI Build Status rstudio mirror downloads cran version codecov.io

Provides deepboost models training, evaluation, predicting and hyper parameter optimising using grid search and cross validation.


Based on Google’s Deep Boosting algorithm by Cortes et al.

See this paper for details

Adapted from Google’s C++ deepbbost implementation :


Another version for the package that uses the original unmodified algorith exists in :



From CRAN :



Choosing parameters for a deepboost model :

best_params <- deepboost.gridSearch(formula, data)

Training a deepboost model :

boost <- deepboost(formula, data,
                    num_iter = best_params[2][[1]], 
                    beta = best_params[3][[1]], 
                    lambda = best_params[4][[1]], 
                    loss_type = best_params[5][[1]]

Classifying using a trained deepboost model :

labels <- predict(boost, newdata)
