SigOpt for Academia
SigOpt is committed to supporting researchers who are publishing peer-reviewed techniques and results.
SigOpt was founded to empower the world’s experts. We are committed to advancing and enabling academic research by supporting academics, researchers, and qualified non-profits through our academic program. SigOpt was founded in part because our CEO needed to manually solve difficult optimization problems as a Ph.D. student, and thought that there needed to be a better solution.
Our academic program gives eligible researchers complimentary access to our optimization solution so they can focus on discovering new methods and techniques and not worry about parameter optimization. Numerous peer-reviewed papers using SigOpt as part of this program have already been published, in areas ranging from drug discovery to water pump operations.

Give your entire university research group access to our product.
Accelerating research for non-profits working on social good.
Enabling researchers at national laboratories to solve any optimization problem.
Helping students train and tune models more efficiently, as they learn ML.
“SigOpt is the most advanced and complete solution for experiment management and hyperparameter optimization we have encountered thus far, and it enables us to produce robust and reproducible research with reliable results. We built it into our modeling framework, DeepDIVA, as the standard method for experimentation and optimization.”

“SigOpt removes the guesswork in designing models with apt hyperparameters and provides a conclusive answer in minimal runs. This has led to usage of far less computational resources without compromising on accuracy, and a stronger confidence in the otherwise mystical machine learning approach.”

“We are excited about our collaboration with SigOpt and appreciate the recognition we have received on our work with a Materials Horizons publication, including the research being featured on the cover, and a couple of NeurIPS conference presentations. The SigOpt team has helped to greatly accelerate our materials research from concept to demonstration.”
