Automatic Machine Learning (Auto-ML) tools enable the automatic solution of real-world problems through machine learning techniques. These tools tend to be more time consuming than standard machine learning libraries, therefore, exploiting all the available resources to the full is a valuable feature. This paper presents a two-phase optimization sy...
