Being that XGBoost achieves implementations with the ability to handle missing values, which are one of the major drawbacks in most of the other algorithms, scalabilities, not just time-efficiencies, are very promising for the adoption of XGBoost.

In the simplest terms, XGBoost is a sequence tree for ranking.

1. It automatically learns the model of the input (usually, the feature) and then fits a new one (this is where the approach gained the name gradient boosting.)

2. It is an ensemble learning algorithm that uses a gradient descent framework as the base for the construction of the gradient descent estimator. Gradient Boosting is associated with gradient descent methods and one of the best-performing ensemble methods because of its ability to yield accurate results.

4. It arrives with many performances tuning hyper-parameters, encapsulating the components of an… Read the full blog for free on Medium.
