Project Description


Make sure you have python3.

You need to have the following dependencies in order to use BOSS: GPy - OR GPy with gradients (if you use gradient observations) - (this should also be called simply GPy) GPyOpt-1.0.2 - paramz-0.5.6 - sobol_seq -

NB: GPyOpt needs to be version 1.0.2. Install this with pip3 uninstall GPyOpt pip3 install [–user] GPyOpt==1.0.2 (–user flag is in case you are installing locally for yourself)

Copy all the files in boss/ to your computer.

Make a folder for your own boss files and copy there from examples/ the files - runoptions - sh_script [in case your own script is a shell script] - empty_script [in case you want to write your own python script]

Edit the copied script file and make sure it works.

Edit runoptions, make sure it references the correct script.

run: $ python3 /path/to/boss/ runoptions
