We propose a new, robust boosting method by using a siginoidal function as a loss function. In deriving the method, the stagewise additive modelling methodology is blended with the gradient descent algorithms. Based on intensive numerical experiments, we show that the proposed method is actually better than AdaBoost and other regularized method in test error rates in the case of noisy, mislabeled situation.
