    Hyperparameter Optimization for Machine Learning Models using Bayesian Optimization


    Hyperparameters are important for machine learning algorithms since they directly control the behaviours of training algorithms and have a significant effect on the performance of machine learning models. Bayesian optimization is an optimization framework for the global optimization of expensive Blackbox functions, which recently gained traction in Hyperparameter optimization for machine learning algorithms. In this talk, Bayesian optimization as a method to optimize hyperparameter in Machine Learning models is reviewed. First, we will consider the traditional Bayesian optimization method, then we will consider new suggested methods, which are based on Bayesian Optimization and supposed to be more efficient than the traditional Bayesian optimization method.
