Dear all, 
I was wondering if you ever compared the pros and cons of different algorithms included in HeuristicLab to serve as a guideline for users.
Thank you

Hi,
for derivative-free optimization of continuous problems I like to use CMAES. For binary problems the parameterless population-pyramid (P3) algorithm is a good choice. For regression problems the choice is determined by the type of model you want to have (e.g. sparse linear model -> use elastic-net). If you don't care about the regression model structure random forest or gradient boosted trees work well.
Best, Gabriel
