Abstract

We discuss the challenges of the 2009 KDD Cup along with our ideas and methodologies for modelling the problem. The main stages included aggressive nonparametric feature selection, careful treatment of categorical variables and tuning a gradient boosting machine under Bernoulli loss with trees.
