However, AdaBoost performs worse on noisy tasks [10, 11], such as the iris and the breast cancer benchmark data sets [1]. On the latter tasks, a large margin on all training points cannot be achieved without adverse effects on the generalization error. This experimental observation was supported by the study of

However, AdaBoost performs worse than other learning machines on noisy tasks [6, 7], such as the iris and the breast cancer benchmark data sets [5]. The present paper addresses the overfitting problem of AdaBoost in two ways. Primarily, it makes an algorithmic contribution to the problem of constructing regularized boosting algorithms.
