To use machine learning (ML), users have to choose between many design options: (i) ML algorithms (ii) pre-processing techniques, (iii) post-processing techniques, (iv) hyperparameter settings, (v) architectures of neural networks and so on. These design decisions are often responsible whether ML systems return random predictions or achieve state-of-the-art performance. Unfortunately, even for ML-experts it is a tedious and error-prone task and thus it is not easy to make these decisions efficiently.

Automated machine learning (AutoML) addresses this challenge by automating the design process such that even non-ML experts can efficiently develop new ML applications.
