I am new to the concept of gradient boosting, I would appreciate any links that can lead me to MATLAB implentations/examples/functions that can help me better understand how to use gradient boosting in MATLAB

Gradient boosting technique has been supported in MATLAB since R2011a.
Implementations of the gradient boosting technique in MATLAB are:
  • AdaBoostM1, GentleBoost and LogitBoost in ‘fitcensemble’ for classification
  • LSBoost in ‘fitrensemble’ for regression.
MATLAB supports Gradient Boosting for specific forms of loss functions:
  • Mean squared error (MSE) through the 'LSBoost' method.
  • Exponential loss through 'AdaBoostM1' and 'GentleBoost' methods.
  • Binomial deviance through the 'LogitBoost' method.
