Embedded hyper-parameter tuning by Simulated Annealing

4 Jun 2019Matteo FischettiMatteo Stringher

We propose a new metaheuristic training scheme that combines Stochastic Gradient Descent (SGD) and Discrete Optimization in an unconventional way. Our idea is to define a discrete neighborhood of the current SGD point containing a number of "potentially good moves" that exploit gradient information, and to search this neighborhood by using a classical metaheuristic scheme borrowed from Discrete Optimization...
