Bagging and boosting have become increasingly important ensemble methods for combining models in the data
mining and machine learning literature. We review the basic ideas of these methods, propose a new robust boosting
algorithm based on a non-convex loss function and compare the performance of these methods to both simulated and real
data sets with and without contamination.
