I. AIM AND SCOPE
Most evolutionary algorithms and other meta-heuristic search methods typically assume that there are explicit objective functions available for fitness evaluations. In the real world, however, such explicit objective functions may not exist in many cases. For example, in many process industry optimization problems, no explicit models exist for describing the relationship between the final quality of the product and the decision variables, such as control loop outputs and grinding particle size in hematite grinding processes. Therefore, some computationally very intensive numerical simulation, such as computational fluid dynamic simulations or finite element analysis or even physical experiments, are instead conducted as the way to evaluate the fitness value. Thus, historical experimental data becomes significantly important and can be used for optimization. There are also cases where only factual data can be collected.

For solving such optimization problems, evolutionary optimization can be conducted only using a data-driven approach. Data-driven evolutionary optimization can largely be divided into two paradigms, one termed off-line data-driven optimization, where no additional data can be sampled during optimization, and the other is called on-line data-driven optimization, where only a limited number of new data points can be actively sampled during optimization. For both paradigms of data-driven optimization, seamless integration of machine learning techniques, such as model selection, ensemble learning, active learning, semi-supervised learning and transfer learning with evolutionary optimization are essential, due to the fact that data acquisition is very expensive, either computationally or costly.

This special issue aims to present the most recent advances in data-driven optimization, in particular in the integration of evolutionary algorithms and other meta-heuristic search methods with machine learning techniques, neural networks and fuzzy logic systems for surrogate modelling, data mining, preference articulation, and decision-making.
