Synthetic Petri Dish: A Novel Surrogate Model for Rapid Architecture Search

27 May 2020Aditya RawalJoel LehmanFelipe Petroski SuchJeff CluneKenneth O. Stanley

Neural Architecture Search (NAS) explores a large space of architectural motifs -- a compute-intensive process that often involves ground-truth evaluation of each motif by instantiating it within a large network, and training and evaluating the network with thousands of domain-specific data samples. Inspired by how biological motifs such as cells are sometimes extracted from their natural environment and studied in an artificial Petri dish setting, this paper proposes the Synthetic Petri Dish model for evaluating architectural motifs...
