Truncated Variance Reduction: A Unified Approach to Bayesian Optimization and Level-Set Estimation

NeurIPS 2016 Ilija BogunovicJonathan ScarlettAndreas KrauseVolkan Cevher

We present a new algorithm, truncated variance reduction (TruVaR), that treats Bayesian optimization (BO) and level-set estimation (LSE) with Gaussian processes in a unified fashion. The algorithm greedily shrinks a sum of truncated variances within a set of potential maximizers (BO) or unclassified points (LSE), which is updated based on confidence bounds... (read more)
