Accelerating Neural Architecture Search with Theory-Grounded, Training-Free Metrics
March 28, 2022
Over the past decade, the world has seen tremendous increases in the deployment of artificial intelligence (AI) technology. The main horsepower behind the success of AI systems is provided by deep learning models and machine learning (ML) algorithms. Recently, a new AI paradigm has emerged: Automated Machine Learning (AutoML) including its subfield Neural Architecture Search (NAS). More....
The U.S. National Science Foundation propels the nation forward by advancing fundamental research in all fields of science and engineering. NSF supports research and people by providing facilities, instruments and funding to support their ingenuity and sustain the U.S. as a global leader in research and innovation. With a fiscal year 2023 budget of $9.5 billion, NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 40,000 competitive proposals and makes about 11,000 new awards. Those awards include support for cooperative research with industry, Arctic and Antarctic research and operations, and U.S. participation in international scientific efforts.
