Gradient Boosting Machine in III Acts: Dr. Trevor Hastie, Netflix & 0xdata. Triple Header on Boosting & GBM:
Act I: Trevor Hastie, Of Stanford Mathematical Sciences, the mathematician behind Lasso & GBM speaks of the nuances of the Algorithm.
Act II: Cliff Click, CTO of 0xdata, the implementor of parallel and distributed GBM.
Act III: Antonio Molins, Data Scientist at Netflix, who uses GBM in his practice of data science for Marketing Algorithmic Models.
Boosting is a simple strategy that produces dramatic improvement in prediction performance. It works by sequentially applying a Classification Algorithm to reweighted versions of training data and taking the weighted majority vote of the sequence of classifiers produced.

“In the last 10 years my colleagues and I have been drawn into the machine learning domain, probably after the lure of neural networks. This has led us to offer a statistical perspective on novel and popular techniques arising outside of statistics, such as boosting and support-vector machines. This culminated in our 2001 book “Elements of Statistical Learning”, but the interest continues.”
-Trevor Hastie,
