I am looking for a Java library with already implemented local search algorithms. Does such a thing exist? Would anyone recommend one?
I am testing several AI programs and need to select the best parameters for each one (in a relatively large number of experiments). I could write my own search algorithm, of course, but it would be so much easier to use several already implemented algorithms and choose the best one.
No, I certainly do not mean that. I cannot have the complete search tree built a priori. As I said, I need to search through possible parameter configurations, so I cannot run them all exhaustively. I need local search algorithms (such as gradient descent, local stochastic search etc) which make decisions locally.
Hmm, interesting tip. I would think that a Java forum is an appropriate place to ask about existence general-purpose library. But thanks for comparing it in complexity to building a rocket ship, I am flattered
