Non-Differentiable Supervised Learning with Evolution Strategies and Hybrid Methods

7 Jun 2019 Karel Lenc Erich Elsen Tom Schaul Karen Simonyan

In this work we show that Evolution Strategies (ES) are a viable method for learning non-differentiable parameters of large supervised models. ES are black-box optimization algorithms that estimate distributions of model parameters; however they have only been used for relatively small problems so far... (read more)
