Title: EvolutionaryIntelligent for Data Analytics and Optimization
Speaker: Amir H. Gandomi
Abstract: Evolutionary Intelligence (EI)has been widely used during the last two decades and has remained ahighly-researched topic, especially for complex real-world problems. The EItechniques are a subset of artificial intelligence, but they are slightlydifferent from the classical methods in the sense that the intelligence of EI comesfrom biological systems or nature in general. The efficiency of EC is due totheir significant ability to imitate the best features of nature which haveevolved by natural selection over millions of years. The central theme of thispresentation is about EI techniques and their application to complex real-world engineering problems. On thisbasis, first I will talk about an automated learning approach called geneticprogramming. Applied evolutionary learning will be presented, and then theirnew advances will be mentioned. Here, some of my studies on big data analyticsand modelling using EI and genetic programming, in particular, will bepresented. Second, evolutionary optimization will be presented including keyapplications in the design optimization of complex and nonlinear engineeringsystems. It will also be explained how such algorithms have been adopted to engineeringproblems and how their advantages over the classical optimization problems areused in action. Optimization results of large-scale towers and many-objectiveproblems will be presented which show the applicability of EI. Finally,heuristics will be explained which are adaptable with EI and they cansignificantly improve the optimization results.
