Tuning Spaces

The package mlr3tuningspaces ships with some predefined tuning spaces for hyperparameter optimization. See the respective manual page for the article from which they were extracted.

Example Usage

Load a tuning space for the classification tree learner from the Bischl et al. (2021) article.


# load learner and set search space
learner = lts(lrn("classif.rpart"))

# retrieve task
task = tsk("pima")

# load tuner and set batch size
tuner = tnr("random_search", batch_size = 10)

# hyperparameter tuning on the pima data set
instance = tune(
  tuner = tnr("grid_search", resolution = 5, batch_size = 25),
  task = task,
  learner = learner,
  resampling = rsmp("holdout"),
  measure = msr("classif.ce"),

# best performing hyperparameter configuration
          cp minbucket minsplit learner_param_vals  x_domain classif.ce
       <num>     <num>    <num>             <list>    <list>      <num>
1: -4.029524         0 1.734813          <list[4]> <list[3]>  0.2421875
# fit final model on complete data set
learner$param_set$values = instance$result_learner_param_vals
