Paper Abstract In high-dimensional prediction problems, especially in the p ≫ n situation, feature selection is an essential tool. A fundamental method for problems of this type is componentwise gradient boosting, which automatically selects from a pool of base learners – e.g. simple linear effects or component-wise smoothing splines (Schmid & Hothorn, 2008) – and produces a sparse additive statistical model. Boosting these kinds of models maintains interpretability and enables unbiased model selection in high-dimensional feature spaces (Hofner, Hothorn, Kneib, & Schmid, 2012).
