GBMs have become my favorite type of model over the last two years. In this tutorial, I demonstrate how to use a GBM for binary classification in R (predicting whether an event occurs or not). I also discuss basic model tuning and model inference with GBMs. Stay tuned for a second part focused on tuning parameters, variable selection, and cross validation with GBM!
