Complex problems are rarely solved through singular thought or action. A collective weather forecast produced by a team of meteorologists, each with a different perspective, will likely result in better predictions than that produced by a single individual. Similarly, the world of machine learning finds power in ensemble methods — combining multiple models to improve predictions and, subsequently, decision-making.
With respect to ensemble learning, two strategies stand out: bagging and boosting. Both are powerful methods that have revolutionized the way we train our machine-learning models.
In this article, we’ll delve into the foundational concepts of these two methods and… Read the full blog for free on Medium.
