SPOT Updates on CRAN

Version: 2.8.2 of the Sequential Parameter Optimization Toolbox is available on CRAN.

SPOT is set of tools for model-based optimization and tuning of algorithms (hyperparameter tuning respectively hyperparameter optimization). 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.
