On the other hand, the methods outlined in the previous section and section 5 can be used to handle gradients with negative components. The approach used by R¨ atsch et al. [13] can similarly be interpreted as a potential function of the margins. Recently, Friedman et al. [8] have given a maximum likelihood motivation for AdaBoost, and introduced another leveraging algorithm based on the log-likelihood criteria. They indicate that minimizing the square loss potential, (H − 1)2 performed less well in experiments than other monotone potentials, and conjecture that its non-monotonicity (penalizing margins greater than 1) is a contributing factor.

We define bad pair to be a pair of hypotheses from the version space that differ on more then proportion α of the samples. e. if two hypotheses are picked independently from the version space, the probability that they form a bad pair is less then β4k . We will show that if the algorithm did not make a query for tk consecutive samples, then the probability that the queries sampled do not form an α − β4k -net, is bounded by βk /4. Let W = {(h1 , h2 ) |Prx [h1 (x) = h2 (x)] ≥ α}. We would like to bound the probability that Pr[W ] > βk /4 when QBC” didn’t query for a tag for tk at the last consecutive samples: If Pr[W ] > βk /4, then the probability that the QBC algorithm will query for a tag is greater then αβk /4.
