Choosing the correct hyperparameters for machine learning or deep learning models is one of the best ways to extract the last juice out of your models. In this article, I will show you some of the best ways to do hyperparameter tuning that are available today.
It is possible and recommended to search the hyper-parameter space for the best cross validation score.
