Neural Optimizer Search with Reinforcement Learning

  title={Neural Optimizer Search with Reinforcement Learning},
  author={Irwan Bello and Barret Zoph and Vijay Vasudevan and Quoc V. Le},
We present an approach to automate the process of discovering optimization methods, with a focus on deep learning architectures. We train a Recurrent Neural Network controller to generate a string in a specific domain language that describes a mathematical update equation based on a list of primitive functions, such as the gradient, running average of the gradient, etc. The controller is trained with Reinforcement Learning to maximize the performance of a model after a few epochs. On CIFAR-10… CONTINUE READING
