Given a set of candidate models, the goal of Model Selection is to select the model that best approximates the observed data and captures its underlying regularities. Model Selection criteria are defined such that they strike a balance between the goodness of fit, and the generalizability or complexity of the models.
We show that this interface meets the requirements for a broad range of hyperparameter search algorithms, allows straightforward scaling of search to large clusters, and simplifies algorithm implementation.
In this paper, we propose a practically Easy Transfer Learning (EasyTL) approach which requires no model selection and hyperparameter tuning, while achieving competitive performance.

Sequential model-based optimization (also known as Bayesian optimization) is one of the most efficient methods (per function evaluation) of function minimization.
metric-learn is an open source Python package implementing supervised and weakly-supervised distance metric learning algorithms.
Second is, that for k-fold cross-validation, the model performance is in most cases calculated as an average performance from particular folds, which neglects the information how stable is the performance for different folds.
In this article, we introduce The Merging Path Plot - a methodology, and factorMerger - an R package, for exploration and visualization of k-group dissimilarities.
