Short Seminar

Title: "Tuning computer systems"

Speaker: Valentin Dalibard: University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory

Abstract: In this talk, I will show the different approaches used for tuning the performance of computer systems. I will review some of the profiling tools used for monitoring performance of computer programs and systems. I will then turn to the field of automatic tuning which has recently received some interest from the machine learning community under the field of Bayesian Optimization. I will also present some of my recent work on the topic and show how one can add structure to the tuning mechanisms to improve their performance.
