Swarm Intelligence in Big Data Analytics 2014 : International Journal of Swarm Intelligence Research (IJSIR) Special Issue on Swarm Intelligence in Big Data Analytics
Call For Papers
1. Aim and Scope
Nowadays, the big data has attracted attentions from more and more researchers. The big data is defined as the dataset whose size is beyond the processing ability of typical database or computers. The big data analytics is to automatically extract knowledge from large amounts of data. It can be seen as mining or processing of massive data, and "useful" information could be retrieved from large dataset. The properties of big data analytics can be concentrated in three parts: large volume, variety of different sources, and fast increasing speed, i.e., velocity. The algorithms should be effective to solve large-scale, dynamic the big data analytics problems.
Swarm intelligence (SI), which is based on a population of individuals, is a collection of nature-inspired searching techniques. To search a problem domain, a swarm intelligence algorithm processes a population of individuals. Each individual represents a potential solution of the problem being optimized. In swarm intelligence, an algorithm maintains and successively improves a population of potential solutions until some stopping condition is met. The solutions are initialized randomly in the search space, and are guided toward the better and better areas through the interaction among solutions over iterations.
The swarm intelligence algorithms have shown significant achievements on solving large scale, dynamical, and multi-objective problems. With the application of the swarm intelligence, more rapid and effective methods can be designed to solve big data analytics problems.
This special issue aims at fostering the latest development of Swarm Intelligence Techniques for Big Data analytics problems. Original contributions that provide novel theories, frameworks, and solutions to challenging problems of Big Data analytics are very welcome for this Special Issue. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
The use of swarm intelligence techniques such as:
1) Ant colony optimization
2) Artificial immune system
3) Brain Storm Optimization
4) Cultural algorithm
5) Differential Evolution
6) Fireworks Algorithm
7) Particle swarm optimization
