Summary: We discuss algorithmic aspects of boosting techniques, such as Majority Vote Boosting, AdaBoost, and MadaBoost. Considering a situation where we are given a huge amount of examples and asked to find some rule for explaining these example data, we show some reasonable algorithmic approaches for dealing with such a huge dataset by boosting techniques. Through this example, we explain how to use and how to implement “adaptivity” for scaling-up existing algorithms.
