Automated Machine Learning (AutoML) is one of the techniques that will greatly advance recommender systems in the near future (see also AutoRecSys). Recently, there was a free open access book published on AutoML by Frank Hutter, Lars Kotthoff, and Joaquin Vanschoren. Just a few days ago, a new free online lecture on AutoML was announced on KI-Campus.org. Marius Lindauer, Bernd Bischl, Frank Hutter, Lars Kotthoff, and Janek Thomas offer a comprehensive introduction to AutoML in a 14-weeks course, each week containing 8 hours of video material. The creators are well-known authorities in the field of AutoML, and even though I haven’t looked at the course yet, I am quite sure it will be excellent.
