Lessons Learned From Benchmarking Fast Machine Learning Algorithms

[unable to retrieve full-text content]Boosted decision trees are responsible for more than half of the winning solutions in machine learning challenges hosted at Kaggle, and require minimal tuning. We evaluate two popular tree boosting software packages: XGBoost and LightGBM and draw 4 important lessons.
