## Rademacher Observations, Private Data, and Boosting

### Description

The minimization of the logistic loss is a popular approach to batch supervised learning. Our paper starts from the surprising observation that, when fitting linear (or kernelized) classifiers, the minimization of the logistic loss is \textit{equivalent} to the minimization of an exponential \textit{rado}-loss computed (i) over transformed data that we call Rademacher observations (rados), and (ii) over the \textit{same} classifier as the one of the logistic loss. Thus, a classifier learnt from...[Show more]
