# Boosting, Pre-decesor

- Now we're implementing something called spam classfier.
- Boosting is one of the famous ensemble learning
- First let's introduce a problem of spam email
- we can think of being positive as one indication of spam
- and negative as non spam

- This is the core algorithm of boosting algorithm
- First learn a simple spam indicator. set that as a rule
- Then for every other spam, combine more and more until whole one rule
- But it's not be the case to include directly whole data as a rule. That would be called overfiting.

- This is just how overall boosting should look like.
- One of the simplest method of 1 is just taking subset(email) and learn from it.
- Then for combine, just average of it
- So if we take it to the learning algorithm
- We have n points, and the attribute is all 0th order poloynomial.
- We take one data point and take to the learner, the results is the mean for one particuular data points.
- The ensemble outputs are just mean with n-numbers.

- First we take randomly 5 subsets; each subset takes randomly 5 example from it.
- the red points is the all available data points, and the green one is cross validation points
- Then we apply third order polynomial, and average each of the subsets.
- The curve will then produced 5 lines.
- We can see that all line perform polynomial regression.
- Some of the lines match point 1 to 4, but last two points maybe missed
- The red line is the average of all subsets with 3rd degree polynomial
- The blue line is the average of all subsets with 4th degree polynomial
- These overall called bagging, takes bag of data, but not necessarily called boosting.
