BayesianOptimization tuning with Gaussian process.

**Arguments**

**hypermodel**: Instance of`HyperModel`

class (or callable that takes hyperparameters and returns a`Model`

instance). It is optional when`Tuner.run_trial()`

is overriden and does not use`self.hypermodel`

.**objective**: A string,`keras_tuner.Objective`

instance, or a list of`keras_tuner.Objective`

s and strings. If a string, the direction of the optimization (min or max) will be inferred. If a list of`keras_tuner.Objective`

, we will minimize the sum of all the objectives to minimize subtracting the sum of all the objectives to maximize. The`objective`

argument is optional when`Tuner.run_trial()`

or`HyperModel.fit()`

returns a single float as the objective to minimize.**max_trials**: Integer, the total number of trials (model configurations) to test at most. Note that the oracle may interrupt the search before`max_trial`

models have been tested if the search space has been exhausted. Defaults to 10.**num_initial_points**: Optional number of randomly generated samples as initial training data for Bayesian optimization. If left unspecified, a value of 3 times the dimensionality of the hyperparameter space is used.**alpha**: Float, the value added to the diagonal of the kernel matrix during fitting. It represents the expected amount of noise in the observed performances in Bayesian optimization. Defaults to 1e-4.**beta**: Float, the balancing factor of exploration and exploitation. The larger it is, the more explorative it is. Defaults to 2.6.**seed**: Optional integer, the random seed.**hyperparameters**: Optional`HyperParameters`

instance. Can be used to override (or register in advance) hyperparameters in the search space.**tune_new_entries**: Boolean, whether hyperparameter entries that are requested by the hypermodel but that were not specified in`hyperparameters`

should be added to the search space, or not. If not, then the default value for these parameters will be used. Defaults to True.**allow_new_entries**: Boolean, whether the hypermodel is allowed to request hyperparameter entries not listed in`hyperparameters`

. Defaults to True.****kwargs**: Keyword arguments relevant to all`Tuner`

subclasses. Please see the docstring for`Tuner`
