Talk Title: Machine Learning for Complex Networks
Collection and analysis of data from deployed networks is essential for understanding modern networks. Traffic traces collected from various deployed communication networks and the Internet have been used to characterize and model network traffic, analyze Internet topologies, and classify network anomalies. Data mining and statistical analysis of network data are often employed to determine traffic loads, analyze patterns of users' behavior, and predict future network traffic. Spectral graph theory has been applied to analyze various topologies of complex networks and capture historical trends in their development. Recent machine learning techniques have proved valuable for predicting anomalous traffic behavior and for classifying anomalies in complex networks. Further applications of these tools will help improve our understanding of the underlying mechanisms that govern the behavior of complex networks such as the Internet, social networks (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Internet blogs, forums, and websites), power grids, gene regulatory networks, neuronal systems, food webs, social systems, and networks emanating from augmented and virtual reality platforms. They will also help improve performance of these networks and enhance their security.

Talk Title: Intelligent Adaptive Learning Control Methods with Applications to Mobile Robots and Multirobots
Intelligent adaptive learning control (IALC) has been widely investigated and applied for frontier mobile robotics. By incorporating the merits of predictive control, fuzzy modeling and recurrent fuzzy neural networks, this talk will present you three novel ILC framework or paradigms for a class of mobile robots and multirobots in order to achieve desired motion control and navigation. In the outset of the talk, some literature reviews are first mentioned, and then three novel ILC methods and their applications to wheeled robots and multirobots are briefly highlighted and experimentally demonstrated. First, some stable IALC paradigm using feedforward and recurrent fuzzy neural-network structures are discussed which have been well employed to motion control of uncertain wheeled mobile platforms. Second, some new consensus formation control paradigm using IALC are proposed for a class of mobile multirobots. Third, one IALC paradigm using deep learning is simply presented and shown effective for intelligent mobile robots and multirobots. Last but not least, some perspective topics are recommended for future research.

Talk Title: Fair Performance Comparison of Evolutionary Multi-Objective and Many-Objective Optimization Algorithms
Evolutionary multi-objective optimization (EMO) has been an active research area in the field of evolutionary computation. Various EMO algorithms have been proposed in the literature. Their main characteristic feature in comparison with other optimization techniques is that a set of non-dominated solutions (instead of a single optimal solution) is obtained by their single run. This means that the comparison of different EMO algorithms needs an evaluation mechanism of non-dominated solution sets. The focus of this talk is how to compare different EMO algorithms using performance indicators of non-dominated solution sets. In this talk, we first briefly explain evolutionary multi-objective and many-objective optimization algorithms. Next we explain the hypervolume (HV) and the inverted generational distance (IGD), which are the most frequently-used performance indicators. Then we show difficulties of each performance indicator. For example, it is explained that HV-based performance comparison results of different EMO algorithms depends on the specification of a reference point for HV calculation. It is also explained that a set of uniformly distributed non-dominated solutions over the entire Pareto front is not the best distribution of solutions for IGD maximization. Finally, we discuss the parameter specifications for fair performance comparison of different EMO algorithms.

Talk Title: Decomposed Fuzzy Systems
In the talk, a novel fuzzy structure termed as the decomposed fuzzy system (DFS) is proposed to act as the fuzzy approximator. The proposed structure is to decompose each fuzzy variable into layers of fuzzy systems and each layer is to characterize one traditional fuzzy set. Similar to forming fuzzy rules in traditional fuzzy systems, layers from different variables will form the so-called component fuzzy systems. The structure of DFS is proposed to facilitate minimum distribution learning effects among component fuzzy systems so that the learning can be very efficient. It can be seen from our experiments that even when the rule number increases, the learning time in terms of cycles is still almost constant. It can also be found that the function approximation capability and learning efficiency of the DFS are much better than that of the traditional fuzzy systems when employed in adaptive fuzzy control systems. Besides, in order to further reduce the computational burden, a simplified DFS is proposed in this study to satisfy possible real time constraints required in many applications. From our simulation results, it can be seen that the simplified DFS can perform fairly with a more concise decomposition structure. Furthermore, when used in modeling, the proposed DFS not only can have much faster convergent speed, but also can achieve a smaller testing error than those of other fuzzy systems.
