expo_decay() can be used to increase or decrease a function exponentially over iterations. This can be used to dynamically set parameters for acquisition functions as iterations of Bayesian optimization proceed.

expo_decay(iter, start_val, limit_val, slope = 1/5)

Arguments

iter

An integer for the current iteration number.

start_val

The number returned for the first iteration.

limit_val

The number that the process converges to over iterations.

slope

A coefficient for the exponent to control the rate of decay. The sign of the slope controls the direction of decay.

Value

A single numeric value.

Details

Note that, when used with the acquisition functions in tune(), a wrapper would be required since only the first argument would be evaluated during tuning.

Examples

# \donttest{ library(tibble) library(purrr) library(ggplot2) library(dplyr) tibble( iter = 1:40, value = map_dbl( 1:40, expo_decay, start_val = .1, limit_val = 0, slope = 1 / 5 ) ) %>% ggplot(aes(x = iter, y =value)) + geom_path()
# }
