Ensemble methods such as AdaBoost are popular machine learning methods that create highly accurate classifier by combining the predictions from several classifiers. We present a parametrized method of AdaBoost that we call Top-k Parametrized Boost. We evaluate our and other popular ensemble methods from a classification perspective on several real datasets. Our empirical study shows that our method gives the minimum average error with statistical significance on the datasets.
