Automated Deep Learning (AutoDL-Projects) is an open source, lightweight, but useful project for researchers. This project implemented several neural architecture search (NAS) and hyper-parameter optimization (HPO) algorithms.

Who should consider using AutoDL-Projects

  • Beginners who want to try different AutoDL algorithms
  • Engineers who want to try AutoDL to investigate whether AutoDL works on your projects
  • Researchers who want to easily implement and experiement new AutoDL algorithms.

Why should we use AutoDL-Projects

  • Simple library dependencies
  • All algorithms are in the same codebase
  • Active maintenance

AutoDL-Projects Capabilities

At the moment, this project provides the following algorithms and scripts to run them. Please see the details in the link provided in the description column.

History of this repo

At first, this repo is GDAS, which is used to reproduce results in Searching for A Robust Neural Architecture in Four GPU Hours. After that, more functions and more NAS algorithms are continuely added in this repo. After it supports more than five algorithms, it is upgraded from GDAS to NAS-Projects. Now, since both HPO and NAS are supported in this repo, it is upgraded from NAS-Projects to AutoDL-Projects.

Requirements and Preparation

Please install Python>=3.6 and PyTorch>=1.3.0. (You could also run this project in lower versions of Python and PyTorch, but may have bugs). Some visualization codes may require opencv.

CIFAR and ImageNet should be downloaded and extracted into $TORCH_HOME. Some methods use knowledge distillation (KD), which require pre-trained models. Please download these models from Google Drive (or train by yourself) and save into .latent-data.
