XGB Predictive Tool

I checked out the "Boosted" model and see that it basically wraps the "gbm" model in R.  I would like to request a similar wrapping for the newer xgb (or xgboost) -- eXtreme Gradient Boosting, which is very fast and accurate, and is winning Kaggle competitions left and right.  It would be a great addition and is something SAS probably won't have it for another 10 years, if ever.

Aside: lightgbm and catboost now in the mix as well.

Upvote! The performance and accuracy with xgbm is far away better than gbm.

@JohnJPS  @PedrodeOl  Here is the latest XGBoost macro in both R & Python version: https://gallery.alteryx.com/#!app/XGBoost/5ca42dfe826fd31188cd0f08

 

Give a try and let me know if any issue. Will publish a blog to explain the feature soon. Cheers, TL

From my angle (submitter of the idea), this could be marked as completed/implemented: the gallery solution given by @TimothyL is great.

Thanks!

XGBoost, Catboost and LightBGM are seriously needed.
