Experiment initialization parameters

In the tutorial materials, we provide the following sample init.yaml file. This section explains each initialization parameter. For further details, consult initExp(app_id,args) on the NEXT GitHub wiki.

  • app_id:
    init_yaml_app_idThis refers to the built-in algorithm apps provided by NEXT. For a triplet experiment, the app_id is PoolBasedTripletMDS. Other algorithms, such as DuelingBandits, refer to different types of experiments.
