CVPR 2020 Tutorial on

From HPO to NAS: Automated Deep Learning

Online 06/15/2020


Researchers have spent tremendous time in optimizing hyper-parameters and tweaking architectures. Can we alleviate the efforts in developing deep learning algorithms and make the researchers focus more on innovative areas? In this tutorial, we encourage the researchers to design the hyper-parameter ranges and possible network architecture combinations, and pass the workload to the machines. This tutorial will cover the important concepts in automatic machine learning, and the applications in computer vision. The audience will be able to reproduce large scale experiments through hands-on section using Jupyter Notebooks.
