TREGO: a Trust-Region Framework for Efficient Global Optimization

Efficient Global Optimization (EGO) is the canonical form of Bayesian optimization that has been successfully applied to solve global optimization of expensive-to-evaluate black-box problems. However, EGO struggles to scale with dimension, and offers limited theoretical guarantees. In this work, a trust-region framework for EGO (TREGO) is proposed and analyzed. TREGO alternates between regular EGO steps … Read more
