Welcome to AutoML@ChaLearn. ChaLearn is a non-for-profit organization bringing to you challenges and workshops in Machine Learning. The AutoML track works since 2014 to stimulate the community to work on the problem of creating ML algorithms that work without any human intervention. This means completely automatically choosing models, architectures, hyper-parameters, etc. There are statistical challenges (not over-fitting) and computational challenges (searching fast a large space of possibilities).

ChaLearn also has a very active Computer Vision track.
