Combination of Hyperband and Bayesian Optimization for Hyperparameter Optimization in Deep Learning

5 Jan 2018  ·  Jiazhuo Wang, Jason Xu, Xuejun Wang ·

Deep learning has achieved impressive results on many problems. However, it requires high degree of expertise or a lot of experience to tune well the hyperparameters, and such manual tuning process is likely to be biased. Moreover, it is not practical to try out as many different hyperparameter configurations in deep learning as in other machine learning scenarios, because evaluating each single hyperparameter configuration in deep learning would mean training a deep neural network, which usually takes quite long time. Hyperband algorithm achieves state-of-the-art performance on various hyperparameter optimization problems in the field of deep learning. However, Hyperband algorithm does not utilize history information of previous explored hyperparameter configurations, thus the solution found is suboptimal. We propose to combine Hyperband algorithm with Bayesian optimization (which does not ignore history when sampling next trial configuration). Experimental results show that our combination approach is superior to other hyperparameter optimization approaches including Hyperband algorithm.
