Machine learning approaches have been widely effective solving many simple and well de- fined problems in the literature. However, most approaches face difficulties when dealing with more complicated real-world problems, often due to high data dimensionality. One of the first applications of Deep Learning models was with data dimensionality reduction. These learning models have attracted a substantial amount of academic and industrial attention in the past years, and are the current state-of-the-art in many applications such as speech recognition, image pedestrian detection, image classification as well as many medical applications. Although building and training deep learning models is highly de- sirable, there lies a big difficulty in selecting the correct parameter settings that needs to be better understood. In this project, we aim to investigate how to combine meta-learning with optimization techniques to efficiently build Deep Learning models for classification tasks. (AU)
