HYPPO is a software package that uses adaptive surrogate models with uncertainty quantification to automatically tune hyperparameters in a variety of deep learning models. The hyperparamer optimization (HPO) process uses the following steps:

Initialization : Maps architecture to performance of trained model

Prediction : Choose which architecture to try next using surrogate modeling

Determine model’s accuracy using test data

Iteratively update with new inputoutput data
This HPO problem is formulated as a bilevel optimization problem:
The upper level problem (1) finds the optimal set of hyperparameters (i.e., the model architecture) that minimizes the objective function. The lower level problem (2) finds the optimal weights that minimze the loss function for the training data.
This documentation aims at providing a comprehensive background and instruction for the HYPPO software. The program can be used for a variety of applications, including but not limited to performing Deep Learning training across many sets of hyperparameters with multiple trials for each evaluation, doing sensitivity analysis on sparse data across the hyperparameter space, and doing surrogate modeling for hyperparameter optimization.
