Papers We Love Bucharest is happy to announce the meetup #14 in which we'll present and discuss the original paper that introduced AdaBoost, the adaptive algorithm designed to boost the accuracy of hypotheses in machine learning. This paper received the Godel Prize in 2003 (the most important prize for outstanding papers in the area of theoretical computer science) and the award committee considered it as "a permanent contribution to science even beyond computer science"!

AdaBoost - the original paper

Original Paper:

Y. Freund, R. E. Schapire, "A decision-theoretic generalization of on-line learning and an application to boosting (", Journal of Computer and System Sciences, 55(1):[masked], 1997

Let's enjoy together its elegance and power! We'll present also some code.
