CALL FOR PAPERS: 7th World Congress on Nature and Biologically Inspired Computing (NaBIC2015) Pietermaritzburg, South Africa
SPECIAL SESSION: Nature Inspired Methodologies for Feature Reduction and Function Approximation
Computational Intelligence (CI) has played significant role various in industrial applications such as pharmaceutical, medical, chemical, etc. Data generated or collected for modeling is a crucial aspect apart from the conventional experimental work carried-out in the industry. Often collected data need to be analyzed. In this case, CI tools helps in understanding and modeling collected data. For several applications, critical variables involved in the experimental process need to be determined. Hence, feature selection methods helps discovering these critical variables. This session is devoted to feature selection and function approximation in real world application problems.
This session will include (but is not limited to) the usage of nature inspired methodologies for:
Feature selection methodology
Integration with data mining algorithms
Data streams and time series
Selection in extremely high-dimensional domains
Real-world case studies and applications
Fuzzy neural networks
Support vector machines and kernel methods
Mixture models, ensemble learning, and other meta-learning or committee algorithms
Hybrid learning methods
Brain-inspired cognitive architectures
Hybrid intelligent systems
Speech recognition and speech production
Communications and computer networks
Data mining and knowledge discovery
Power system applications
Financial engineering applications
Manufacturing and industrial applications
Big data applications
