Starting from a given dataset, training a machine learning model implies the computation of a set of model parameters that minimizes/maximizes a given metric or optimization function. The optimum point is generally found using a gradient descent-based method.

However, most models are defined with an extra layer of parameters, called hyper-parameters …
