This package provides hyperparameter tuning for mlr3. It offers various tuning methods e.g. grid search, random search and generalized simulated annealing and different termination criteria can be set and combined. AutoTuner provides a convenient way to perform nested resampling in combination with mlr3. The package is build on bbotk which provides a common framework for optimization.
