Timon Ruban - Automated Hyperparameter Tuning

Abstract:

We'll philosophize about how machine learning is really nothing else than hyperparameter tuning, then take a look at how hyperparameter tuning is often done today and end with a deep dive on Population Based Training (PBT) and Asynchronous Simple Halving Algorithm (ASHA) two simple but efficient algorithms for automated hyperparameter tuning
