DMLC/XGBoost

Build Status Gitter chat for developers at https://gitter.im/dmlc/xgboost

An optimized general purpose gradient boosting library. The library is parallelized, and also provides an optimized distributed version.

It implements machine learning algorithms under the Gradient Boosting framework, including Generalized Linear Model (GLM) and Gradient Boosted Decision Trees (GBDT). XGBoost can also be distributed and scale to Terascale data

XGBoost is part of Distributed Machine Learning Common projects

XGBoost in Graphlab Create

  • XGBoost is adopted as part of boosted tree toolkit in Graphlab Create (GLC). Graphlab Create is a powerful python toolkit that allows you to do data manipulation, graph processing, hyper-parameter search, and visualization of TeraBytes scale data in one framework. Try the Graphlab Create
