Call For Papers
I. Aim and Scope
Today, big data has become capital in both academia and industry fields, which is changing our world and the way we live at an unprecedented rate. Recent advances in computing technology allow us to gather and store large amounts of information from various fields, such as Internet, sensor monitoring systems, social networks, mobile communication systems, and transportation systems. Since big data contains greater variety arriving in increasing volumes and with ever-higher velocity, it is essential to develop new data mining and knowledge discovery techniques, and especially using evolutionary computation techniques help in the information retrieval process in a better way compared to traditional retrieval techniques.
Considering big data mining technologies, it still meet some serious problems requiring to be tackled, such as classification, clustering, regression, associate rules mining, and frequent pattern mining. The ability of evolutionary algorithms includes managing a set of solutions, attending multiple objectives, as well as their ability to optimize various values, which allows them to fit very well some parts of the big data mining problems. The global search performed by evolutionary methods frequently provides a valuable complement to the local search of non-evolutionary methods, and combinations of data mining and evolutionary methods often show particular promise in practice. Evolutionary data mining emphasizes the utility of different evolutionary algorithms to various facets of data mining from databases, ranging from theoretical analysis to real-life applications. The primary motivation of applying evolutionary data mining procedures is to automatically and effectively extract relevant information from a voluminous pool of data, which can conduct global search in the solution space (for example, rules, or another form of knowledge representation). It has become a hot trend to address the classical and new-emerging data mining problems in big data with different evolutionary algorithms. The benefits of investigating the combination of data mining and evolutionary computation in the big data scenario have potential to apply in multiple research disciplines and industries, including transportation, communications, social networks, medical health, and so on.
The goal of this Special Issue aims to provide an unique opportunity to present the work on state-of-the-art of evolutionary data mining algorithms in the area of big data processing. This will provide a snapshot of the latest advances in the contribution of evolutionary frameworks in big data mining applications to solve optimization problems and optimize criteria. The selected papers will be beneficial to both academia and industry, for delivering the significant research outcomes and inspiring new real-world applications.
