About this Event

I am a Semiconductor Engineer currently using Bayesian Optimization for MBE growth.

These techniques are used in the oil industry to determine where to drill the next well, or any other area where function evaluation is very expensive.

We will be using the example from

you need numpy, matplotlib, skopt installed as well as an IDE like Pycharm if you want to follow along, or you can just watch my presentation.

I will be explaining the following:
Objective Function, Acquisition Function, Bayesian Optimization, black box function, kernel, hyperparameters, Curse of dimensionality, DOE, etc.

I will add a video link for the course as we near the date.
