A large number of learning algorithms have been developed in the last decades and they have been applied to several tasks in different application domains, with different performance levels. According to empirical and theoretical results, no single algorithm can outperform the others in every task. Thus, when using learning algorithms to solve a new task, we are faced with the question of which algorithm to use. Metalearning provides a general framework for the selection of the most suitable algorithm for a new task. This talk will discuss how metalearning can be used for algorithm selection in different learning tasks.
