Automated Tuning of Optimization Software Parameters

We present a method to tune software parameters using ideas from software testing and machine learning. The method is based on the key observation that for many classes of instances, the software shows improved performance if a few critical parameters have “good” values, although which parameters are critical depends on the class of instances. Our … Read more

Enclosing Machine Learning

This report introduces a new machine learning paradigm called enclosing machine learning for data mining. This novel method utilizes the virtues of human being’s cognition process and tries to imitate the two basic principles of cognition process from a macroscopical view, which are cognizing things of the same kind, recognizing things of a new kind … Read more
