Hyperopt Makeover: PyPI install and new web docs

12 January 2013 - Waterloo ON

After many drafts and much feedback, I am happy to announce my hyperparameter optimization software hyperopt has a new intuitive API, a snazzy new web site on github, and works with standard Python packaging software via hyperopt on pypi.

Hyperopt’s new API provides minimization via a familiar-looking “fmin()” interface that accepts:

If you use the default in-memory database then the fmin() runs serially, and if you pass the mongodb database it runs in an asynchronous cluster-friendly way.

Here’s hoping for some API stability!
