I would like to experiment with classification problems using boosted decision trees using Matlab. In the paper An Empirical Comparison of Supervised Learning Algorithms this technique ranked #1 with respect to the metrics the authors proposed. My question is, is there a library in Matlab for this type of supervised classification?
The function fitensemble(...) has multiple techniques which I'm finding difficult to understand. For example, the 'LSBoost' technique is relevant for regression problems while I'm interested in classification only. Moreover, in a similar question posted this exact question was asked and answered with regards to R, not Matlab.
