An experiment is a grouping of many runs from a specified script. It always belongs to a workspace. When we submit a run, we provide an experiment name. Information for the run is stored under that experiment. If the name doesn't exist when we submit an experiment, a new experiment is automatically created.
A run is a single execution of a training script. An experiment will typically contain multiple runs.
A run has the following characteristics
- Child Runs
A run also has metrics and parameters associated with it
A run also has outputs associated with it
