Sequential optimization is one of the fastest growing areas of machine learning. In this presentation we deep dive into sequential optimization based on Gaussian process models (aka Bayesian optimization). We will take a look at the analysis of popular algorithms such as UCB and Thompson sampling and wrap up with an overview of recent results and open problems.
