Bayesian Optimization for Dynamic Problems

9 Mar 2018  ·  Favour M. Nyikosa, Michael A. Osborne, Stephen J. Roberts ·

We propose practical extensions to Bayesian optimization for solving dynamic problems. We model dynamic objective functions using spatiotemporal Gaussian process priors which capture all the instances of the functions over time... Our extensions to Bayesian optimization use the information learnt from this model to guide the tracking of a temporally evolving minimum. By exploiting temporal correlations, the proposed method also determines when to make evaluations, how fast to make those evaluations, and it induces an appropriate budget of steps based on the available information. Lastly, we evaluate our technique on synthetic and real-world problems. read more
