Bases: deephyper.search.nas._base.NeuralArchitectureSearch

Asynchronous Model-Based Search baised on the Scikit-Optimized Optimizer. It is extended to the case of joint hyperparameter and neural architecture search.

Parameters
  • problem (NaProblem) – Neural architecture search problem describing the search space to explore.

  • evaluator (Evaluator) – An Evaluator instance responsible of distributing the tasks.

  • random_state (int, optional) – Random seed. Defaults to None.

  • log_dir (str, optional) – Log directory where search’s results are saved. Defaults to “.”.

  • verbose (int, optional) – Indicate the verbosity level of the search. Defaults to 0.

  • surrogate_model (str, optional) – Surrogate model used by the Bayesian optimization. Can be a value in ["RF", "ET", "GBRT", "DUMMY"]. Defaults to "RF".

  • acq_func (str, optional) – Acquisition function used by the Bayesian optimization. Can be a value in ["UCB", "EI", "PI", "gp_hedge"]. Defaults to "UCB".

  • kappa (float, optional) – Manage the exploration/exploitation tradeoff for the “UCB” acquisition function. Defaults to 1.96 for a balance between exploitation and exploration.

  • xi (float, optional) – Manage the exploration/exploitation tradeoff of "EI" and "PI" acquisition function. Defaults to 0.001 for a balance between exploitation and exploration.

  • n_points (int, optional) – The number of configurations sampled from the search space to infer each batch of new evaluated configurations. Defaults to 10000.

  • liar_strategy (str, optional) – Definition of the constant value use for the Liar strategy. Can be a value in ["cl_min", "cl_mean", "cl_max"] . Defaults to "cl_max".

  • n_jobs (int, optional) – Number of parallel processes used to fit the surrogate model of the Bayesian optimization. A value of -1 will use all available cores. Defaults to 1.

Methods

check_evaluator

dump_context

Dumps the context in the log folder.

search

Execute the search algorithm.

to_json

Returns a json version of the search object.

dump_context()#

Dumps the context in the log folder.

search(max_evals: int = - 1, timeout: Optional[int] = None)#

Execute the search algorithm.

Parameters
  • max_evals (int, optional) – The maximum number of evaluations of the run function to perform before stopping the search. Defaults to -1, will run indefinitely.

  • timeout (int, optional) – The time budget (in seconds) of the search before stopping. Defaults to None, will not impose a time budget.

Returns

a pandas DataFrame containing the evaluations performed or None if the search could not evaluate any configuration.

Return type

DataFrame

to_json()#

Returns a json version of the search object.
