I've read that decision trees are able to solve XOR operation so I conclude that XGBoost algorithm can solve it as well.

But my tests on the datasets (datasets that should be highly "xor-ish") do not produce good results, so I wanted to ask whether XGBoost is able to solve this type of problem at all, or maybe I should use a different algorithm like ANN?

EDIT: I found a similar question with a negative answer here.

Could someone please confirm that XGBoost cannot perform XOR operation due to "greedy approach" and whether this can maybe be changed in parameters?
