Our paper has been accepted to AAAI 2018!

Our paper, “Dynamic Optimization of Neural Network Structures Using Probabilistic Modeling”, has been accepted to the Thirty-Second AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI-18). This paper proposes the framework to dynamically optimize the neural network structure during the training using gradient-based method.

Best Paper Award in GECCO 2017

We won the Best Paper Award of Evolutionary Machine Learning (EML) Track in GECCO 2017! The title of the award paper is “A Genetic Programming Approach to Designing Convolutional Neural Network Architectures”. This paper achieved to find high-performance architectures of the convolutional neural networks by the genetic programming with the reasonable computational resource.
