Conditional optimization of a noisy function using a kriging metamodel

Sambakhe D., Rouan L., Bacro J.N., Gozé E.. 2019. Journal of Global Optimization, 73 (3) : p. 615-636.

The efficient global optimization method is popular for the global optimization of computer-intensive black-box functions. Extensions exist, either for the optimization of noisy functions, or for the conditional optimization of deterministic functions, i.e. the search for the values of a subset of parameters that optimize the function conditionally to the values taken by another subset, which are fixed. A metaphor for conditional optimization is the search for a crest line. No method has yet been developed for the conditional optimization of noisy functions: this is what we propose in this article. Testing this new method on test functions showed that, in the case of a high level of noise on the function, the PEQI criterion that we propose is better than the PEI criterion usually implemented in such a situation.
