[XGBoost] Is Anyone Using XGBoost?
I'm planning to use xgboost too, but I'm not quite to that step yet in my project. I'm still working on feature extraction stuff with my data set.
I have never used it before, but am looking forward to trying it out :)
I haven't settled on a final algorithm choice yet, but I am having a lot of success with GBM's at the moment. However, I did find this resource last semester while reading about XGBoost in R:
Most of the tuning parameters are listed and helpful tips are provided for starting values, things to look out for, etc...
I found it very useful while tuning in R, but the same tuning concepts could be applied to Python as well.
