2nd Workshop "Ensemble Methods"
Max Planck Institute Tuebingen, Germany
March 4-5, 2005
The second workshop on ensemble methods will take place at the Max
Planck Institute Tuebingen (Germany) on March 4-5, 2005. This workshop
is jointly organised by the German working groups "Computational
Statistics" (IBS-DR) and "Statistical Computing" (GMDS) as well as the
Austrian Association for Statistical Computing.
The workshop aims at discussing further theoretical and practical
developments for prediction models such as boosting, random forests or
support vector machines. The workshop tries to bring together the
machine learning view with the statistical view on ensemble methods.
By now, the following talks have been scheduled:
* Gilles Blanchard: Consistency results for Boosting
* Peter Buehlmann: tba
* Gunnar Raetsch: Boosting SVMs: a new way for multiple kernel learning
* Koji Tsuda: Matrix exponentiated Gradients
Participants can attend the workshop free of charge, the number of
participants is restricted to 30 persons.
