I was wondering whether anybody knew where I could find pseudocode for the XGBoost algorithm?

  • $\begingroup$ Do you know if there is anything more general? The pseudocode in Chen's paper is for specific algorithms within XGBoost. $\endgroup$ – Jack Apr 24 '18 at 20:45
  • $\begingroup$ Are you interested specifically in XGBoost, or would regular old gradient boosting be sufficient? $\endgroup$ – Matthew Drury Apr 24 '18 at 20:47
  • $\begingroup$ Pseudocode for gradient boosting would help. How tricky would it to "convert" it into pseudocode for XGBoost? $\endgroup$ – Jack Apr 24 '18 at 20:49
  • $\begingroup$ You can't "convert" it, XGBoost does stuff that regular old gradient boosting doesn't do. $\endgroup$ – jbowman Apr 24 '18 at 21:59
