BluePyOpt

The Blue Brain Python Optimization Library (BluePyOpt) is an extensible framework for data-driven model parameter optimization that wraps and standardises several existing open-source tools. It simplifies the task of creating and sharing these optimization, and the associated techniques and knowledge. This is achieved by abstracting the optimization and evaluation tasks into various reusable and flexible discrete elements according to established best-practices. Further, BluePyOpt provides methods for setting up both small- and large-scale optimizations on a variety of platforms, ranging from laptops to Linux clusters and cloud-based compute infrastructures. This software is also part of the Human Brain Project Brain Simulation Platform.
