AutoAI set to make it easy to create machine learning algorithms

AutoAI is a novel approach of designing, training and optimizing machine learning models automatically. With AutoAI, anyone could soon build machine learning pipelines from raw data directly, without writing complex code and performing tedious tuning and optimization, to then automate complicated, labor-intensive tasks. Several IBM papers selected for the AAAI-20 conference in New York demonstrate the value of AutoAI and different approaches to it in great detail.
