    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments provide a system for performing online hyperparameter tuning in distributed machine learning. During operation, the system uses input data for a first set of versions of a statistical model for a set of entities to calculate a batch of performance metrics for the first set of versions. Next, the system applies an optimization technique to the batch to produce updates to a set of hyperparameters for the statistical model. The system then uses the updates to modulate the execution of a second set of versions of the statistical model for the set of entities. When a new entity is added to the set of entities, the system updates the set of hyperparameters with a new dimension for the new entity.
