COMmon Bayesian Optimization Library ( COMBO )
Bayesian optimization has been proven as an effective tool in accelerating scientific discovery. A standard implementation (e.g., scikit-learn), however, can accommodate only small training data. COMBO is highly scalable due to an efficient protocol that employs Thompson sampling, random feature maps, one-rank Cholesky update and automatic hyperparameter tuning. Technical features are described in our document.
