Boosting the minimum margin: LPBoost vs. AdaBoost

Li, Hanxi; Shen, Chunhua


LPBoost seemingly should have better generalization ca- pability than AdaBoost according to the margin theory [12] because LPBoost optimizes the minimum margin directly. Thus far, however, there is no empirical comparison and theoretical explanation of LPBoost against AdaBoost. We have conducted an experimental evaluation on the classi- fication performance of LPBoost and AdaBoost in this pa- per. Our results show that the LPBoost performs worse than AdaBoost in most cases. By considering the...[Show more]
