Active Bayesian Optimization: Minimizing Minimizer Entropy


The ultimate goal of optimization is to find the minimizer of a target function. However, typical criteria for active optimization often ignore the uncertainty about the minimizer. We propose a novel criterion for global optimization and an associated sequential active learning strategy using Gaussian processes. Our criterion is the reduction of uncertainty… (More)
