The short answer is, yes – this is the essence of how one deals with network intrusion, fraud, and other types of low-instance anomaly. In

Improving black-box process efficiency using Bayesian Optimization

Instead of randomly or exhaustively iterating through combinations of algorithms and parameters, we can use Bayesian Optimization libraries to build up an in-memory approximation to the process we want to fine-tune. We can then make a our selections on prior knowledge.
