optbayesexpt: Sequential Bayesian Experiment Design for Adaptive Measurements
Robert McMichael, Sean M. Blakley, Sergey Dushenko
Optbayesexpt is a free, open-source python package that provides adaptive algorithms for efficient estimation/measurement of parameters in a model function. Parameter estimation is the type of measurement one would conventionally tackle with a sequence of data acquisition steps followed by fitting. The software is designed to provide data-based control of experiments, effectively learning from incoming measurement results and using that information to select future measurement settings "live," "in real time," "online," "on the fly." The settings are chosen to have the best chances of improving the measurement results. With these methods optbayesexpt is designed to increase the efficiency of a sequence of measurements, yielding better results and/or lower cost.
