AutoML: Methods, Systems, Challenges (new book)

Editors: Frank Hutter, Lars Kotthoff, Joaquin Vanschoren

We’re in the process of finishing this edited book, and it should be ready for display at NIPS 2018. Next to publishing, we will keep the book open access.
Here is a draft PDF of the entire book, and a bibtex entry for it. Below, we share preliminary versions of the chapters; at this point in time, these are all drafts, before copy editing.
