AI-based Optimisation Seminar Series 10 Nov 2021

Speaker: Professor Amir H Gandomi, University of Technology Sydney

Evolutionary Intelligence for Predictive (Big) Data Analytics

Evolutionary Computation (EC) has been widely used during the last two decades and has remained a highly-researched topic, especially for complex engineering problems. The EC techniques are a subset of artificial intelligence, but they are slightly different from the classical methods in the sense that the intelligence of EC comes from biological systems or nature in general. The efficiency of EC is due to their significant ability to imitate the best features of nature which have evolved by natural selection over millions of years. The central theme of this presentation is about EC techniques and particularly genetic programming for predictive data analytics. their application to complex real-world problems. Applied evolutionary computing will be presented, and then their new advances will be mentioned such as big data analytics. Here, some of my studies on big data analytics and modelling using EC and genetic programming, in particular, will be presented. Case studies are key applications in the modelling of complex and nonlinear engineering systems. It will also be explained how such algorithms have been adopted to engineering problems and how their advantages over the classical algorithms are used in action.


Amir H. Gandomi is a Professor and an ARC DECRA Fellow at the Faculty of Engineering & Information Technology, University of Technology Sydney. Prior to joining UTS, Prof. Gandomi was an Assistant Professor at Stevens Institute of Technology, USA and a distinguished research fellow in BEACON centre, Michigan State University, USA. Prof. Gandomi has published over two hundred journal papers and seven books which collectively have been cited 23,000+ times (H-index = 70). He has been named as one of the most influential scientific minds and Highly Cited Researcher (top 1% publications and 0.1% researchers) for four consecutive years, 2017 to 2021. He is also ranked 18th among more than 12,000 researchers in the Genetic Programming bibliography and ranks 1st in Australia. He has served as associate editor, editor and guest editor in several prestigious journals such as AE of IEEE TBD and IEEE IoTJ. Prof Gandomi is active in delivering keynotes and invited talks. His research interests are (big) data analytics and global optimisation using machine learning and evolutionary computations in particular.
