A SigOpt Experiment is created as an object containing all information needed to execute the optimization process. To create a SigOpt Experiment, you will define:
|Experiment Name||Name of the experiment.|
|Experiment Type||Identifier for the type of experiment.|
|Parameter Space||List of objects where each object is defining a single parameter.|
|Metric Space||List of objects where each object is defining a single parameter.|
|Integer defining the minimum number of SigOpt Runs in a given SigOpt Experiment.|
|Parallel Bandwidth||Integer defining the number of machines/nodes there will be running different asynchronous SigOpt Runs at any given time.|
The SigOpt Optimizer provides four types of experiments: optimization experiment, all constraints experiment, grid search experiment and random search experiment. They are invoked by setting the
type flag while creating an Experiment.
|Search Experiment||Type Flag|
|SigOpt Optimization Experiment|
|All Constraints Experiment|
In the next few pages we'll go through some examples on how to set up your SigOpt Experiment for each type of search above.
