  • Iterative sequential bat algorithm for free-form rational Bézier
           surface reconstruction
    • Authors: Andrès Iglesias, Akemi Gálvez, Marta Collantes
      Pages: 1 - 15
      Abstract: Surface reconstruction is an important issue in many areas: CAD/CAM (reverse engineering for automotive, aerospace and shipbuilding industries), rapid prototyping, biomedical engineering (customised prosthesis, medical implants), medical imaging (computer tomography, magnetic resonance), and others. A classical approach in the field is to consider free-form polynomial surfaces. However, the polynomial scheme cannot replicate many shapes such as the quadrics. In this paper, we overcome this limitation by using rational Bézier surfaces. This rational case is more complicated than the polynomial one, leading to a difficult over-determined nonlinear continuous optimisation problem. Our approach is based on a powerful bio-inspired technique called <i>bat algorithm</i>, sequentially applied in our method to compute the data parameters and weights. This process is performed iteratively with the output of each bat algorithm as the input of the next one, and so on. Then, the poles are computed by SVD least squares approximation. Our method has been applied to three illustrative examples with remarkable results. It can recover the underlying shape of complicated surfaces with good accuracy for data points affected by measurement noise and irregular sampling. Comparative work with common approaches in the field shows that our method outperforms them for all instances in this paper.

  • A bacterial foraging-based batch scheduling model for distributed
           systems
    • Authors: Taj Alam, Zahid Raza
      Pages: 16 - 26
      Abstract: The problem of scheduling in the parallel and distributed environment is proven to be NP-complete and has been addressed by various heuristics. It is always desired from a scheduling scheme to distribute the load evenly on the available resources so as to have maximum resource utilisation while meeting the scheduling objective(s). Bio-inspired metaheuristics for job scheduling have gained immense popularity due to their effectiveness in providing near optimal solution in a reasonable time and computational complexity. This work proposes an evolutionary static scheduling technique based on bacterial foraging for a batch of independent jobs. This model generates the schedule minimising the node idle time and the makespan while exhibiting a balanced load distribution with minimum run time overhead. Simulation study proves the effectiveness of the proposed model in comparison with its peers.

  • Behaviour-driven dynamic pricing modelling via hidden Markov model
    • Authors: Qinfu Qiu, Xiong Chen
      Pages: 27 - 33
      Abstract: The dynamic pricing strategy in airline tickets has gained a lot of concern from both air companies and customers. As it has been proved that putting out discount in airline tickets in sometime may increase a company's total revenue. In this paper, after making analysis in both sides of airline and passengers' behaviour, we found that all the different choices made by passengers, whether purchase or keep waiting, come from an invisible logical chain which contains several key driving elements. Thus, we implement hidden Markov model here, trying to model a new pricing mechanism to raise the revenue. The simulation verified this model's practicability.

  • Differential evolution based on node strength
    • Authors: Lenka Skanderova, Tomas Fabian, Ivan Zelinka
      Pages: 34 - 45
      Abstract: In this paper, three novel algorithms for optimisation based on the differential evolution algorithm are devised. The main idea behind those algorithms stems from the observation that differential evolution dynamics can be modelled via complex networks. In our approach, the individuals of the population are modelled by the nodes and the relationships between them by the directed lines of the graph. Subsequent analysis of non-trivial topological features further influence the process of parent selection in the mutation step and replace the traditional approach which is not reflecting the complex relationships between individuals in the population during evolution. This approach represents a general framework which can be applied to various kinds of differential evolution algorithms. We have incorporated this framework with the three well-performing variants of differential evolution algorithms to demonstrate the effectiveness of our contribution with respect to the convergence rate. Two well-known benchmark sets (including 49 functions) are used to evaluate the performance of the proposed algorithms. Experimental results and statistical analysis indicate that the enhanced algorithms perform better or at least comparable to their original versions.

  • An elite opposition-flower pollination algorithm for a 0-1
           knapsack problem
    • Authors: Mohamed Abdel-Basset, Yongquan Zhou
      Pages: 46 - 53
      Abstract: The knapsack problem is one of the most studied combinatorial optimisation problems with various practical applications. In this paper, we apply an elite opposition-flower pollination algorithm (EFPA), to solve 0-1 knapsack problem, an NP-hard combinatorial optimisation problem. The performance of the proposed algorithm is tested against a set of benchmarks of knapsack problems. Computational experiments with a set of large-scale instances show that the EFPA can be an efficient alternative for solving 0-1 knapsack problems.

      Abstract: The three-dimensional visualisation is an important aid for the detection and diagnosis of pulmonary nodules. The traditional method by which clinicians restore the 3D structure of pulmonary nodules (i.e., by subjective imagination and clinical experience, which may not be intuitive or accurate) is not conducive to pulmonary nodule extraction and quantification. Therefore, we herein propose an algorithm of pulmonary nodule segmentation and 3D reconstruction based on 3D region growing in positron emission tomography-computed tomography (PET-CT) image sequences. First, k-means clustering was used for the lung parenchyma segmentation. Next, 3D surface rendering reconstruction of lung parenchyma was performed. Finally, the novel 3D region growing method optimised by ant colony optimisation (ACO) was used to segment the pulmonary nodule. Our proposed method was more efficient than traditional methods in the present study. The experimental results show that our algorithm can segment pulmonary nodules more fully with high segmentation precision and accuracy.

      Abstract: Classification is one of the important tasks of data mining and neural network is one of the best known tools for doing this task. Despite of producing high classification accuracy, the black box nature of neural network makes it useless for many applications which require transparency in its decision-making process. This drawback is overcome by extracting rules from neural network. Rule extraction makes neural network an alternative to other machine learning methods for handling classification problems by deriving an explanation of how each decision is made. Till now, many algorithms on rule extraction have been proposed but still research on this area is going on to find out more accurate and understandable rules. The proposed algorithm extracts rules from trained neural network for datasets with mixed mode attributes using pedagogical approach. The proposed algorithm uses classified and misclassified patterns to find out the data ranges of significant attributes in respective classes. The experimental results clearly show that the proposed algorithm produces accurate and understandable rules compared to existing algorithms.
