xgboost (0.6-0)

Extreme Gradient Boosting.


Extreme Gradient Boosting, which is an efficient implementation of gradient boosting framework. This package is its R interface. The package includes efficient linear model solver and tree learning algorithms. The package can automatically do parallel computation on a single machine which could be more than 10 times faster than existing gradient boosting packages. It supports various objective functions, including regression, classification and ranking. The package is made to be extensible, so that users are also allowed to define their own objectives easily.
