14th November 2003 - Active Learning

Iain and Masoumeh are going to present a review of global optimization methods based on response surfaces. This is a form of "active learning for optimisation".

Please read the following review, which has a slow didactic style:

A Taxonomy of Global Optimization Methods Based on Response Surfaces, Donald R. Jones. Journal of Global Optimization 21 (4): 345-383, December 2001.
