Last chance: Free access to article about Model-based Methods #optimization

If you are interested in “Model-based Methods for Continuous and Discrete Global Optimization“, you can freely access the article until April 11, 2017:
The SPO Toolbox was used for performing the experiments described in this article. The Sequential Parameter Optimization Toolbox 2.0.1 is a major update of the SPOT R package. It provides a set of tools for model based optimization and tuning of algorithms. It includes surrogate models, optimizers and design of experiment approaches. The main interface is spot, which uses sequentially updated surrogate models for the purpose of efficient optimization. The main goal is to ease the burden of objective function evaluations, when a single evaluation requires a significant amount of resources. See:
