LogitBoost Classifier

LogitBoost is a boosting classification algorithm. LogitBoost and AdaBoost are close to each other in the sense that both perform an additive logistic regression. The difference is that AdaBoost minimizes the exponential loss, whereas LogitBoost minimizes the logistic loss.
LogitBoost within
Intel DAAL
implements a multi-class classifier.

Product and Performance Information

1

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
