CLASS 2 - Course 2: Fundamentals of Gradient Boosting

Abstract: In this course, we start from a single decision tree and progress to random forests and gradient boosted tree models.  We cover the various hyperparameters involved in gradient boosted tree models and characterize their importance.  We also discuss why gradient boosting can generally outperform linear / logistic regression.
