RankBoost and ORBoost algorithms

The program performs ordinal regression using the large-margin thresholded ensemble model with various algorithms. One of them is an efficient implementation of the RankBoost algorithm (Freund et al., 2003) with thresholding. The other two are our proposed ORBoost algorithms. Details can be found in

H.-T. Lin and L. Li. Large-Margin Thresholded Ensembles for Ordinal Regression: Theory and Practice, 2006.

The latest implementation was finished in May 2006, and was later polished in June 2007. You can download the source code here.

Usage Example:

./boostrank-train ~/pyrimdines.dense 50 27 30 200 10 100 pyrimdines.model

Note: the file pyrimdines.dense was processed from the files provided by Dr. Wei Chu here.
