  • Hybrid bio-inspired scheduling algorithms for batch of tasks on
           heterogeneous computing system
    • Authors: Mohammad Sajid, Zahid Raza, Mohammad Shahid
      Pages: 135 - 148
      Abstract: Due to high operational cost, the problem of scheduling a batch of tasks (BoT) applications on heterogeneous computing system (HCS) remains a challenging problem. Accordingly, a plethora of evolutionary algorithms (EAs) and non-EAs have been proposed as solutions. Due to the ability of exploration of major solution space, EAs have been proven to be very effective in addressing the job scheduling problem. This work proposes two hybrid bio-inspired scheduling algorithms VPG and VDG featuring the combined best properties of VNS, PSO, DE and GA. The expected-time-to-compute (ETC) benchmark have been used to first present the performance of eight non-EAs viz. MCT, MinMin, MaxMin, Sufferage, HLTF, relative cost, MINMin and MINSuff in terms of makespan and energy consumption. The study is then extended to evaluate the performance of VPG, VDG and their seeded variants with GA, PSO and DE. Simulation study establishes the superior performance of VDG over peers.

  • An evolutionary classification method based on fireworks algorithm
    • Authors: Yu Xue, Binping Zhao, Tinghuai Ma, Alex X. Liu
      Pages: 149 - 158
      Abstract: Classification and clustering are two important problems in machine learning and data mining. Recently, many evolutionary computation (EC) techniques have been employed to solve the clustering problems by taking the advantage of the global search ability of EC. Different from the situation in clustering research issues, EC techniques are only employed to improve the performance of the classifiers either by optimising their parameters and structures, or by pre-processing their inputs. In this paper, we propose an evolutionary optimisation classification model for the classification problems and the fireworks algorithm (FWA) is employed to solve the classification model directly. In the optimisation classification model, a linear equation set is constructed based on the training sets and an objective function which can be optimised by the EC techniques is proposed according to the equation set. Ten different datasets have been employed in the experiments. For each dataset, 70% instances are used as a training set while the rest are used as a test set. The experiment results show that it is possible to directly solve the classification problems by EC techniques through introducing the evolutionary optimisation classification model. Moreover, FWA performs better than particle swarm optimisation (PSO) algorithm on most datasets.

  • Economic load dispatch using memory based differential evolution
    • Authors: Raghav Prasad Parouha, Kedar Nath Das
      Pages: 159 - 170
      Abstract: Many variants of differential evolution (DE) algorithm and its hybrid versions exist in the literature to solve economic load dispatch (ELD) problem. However, the performance of DE is highly affected by the inappropriate choice of its operators like mutation and crossover. Moreover, in general practice, DE does not employ any strategy of memorising the best results obtained so far in the initial part of the previous cycle. An attempt is made in this paper to propose a 'memory-based DE (MBDE)' where two 'swarm operators' have been introduced. These operators based on the pBEST and gBEST mechanism of particle swarm optimisation (PSO). The proposed MBDE is tested over four different power test systems of ELD problem with varying complexities. Numerical, statistical and graphical analysis reveals the competency of the proposed MBDE.

  • A comparative study among different parallel hybrid artificial intelligent
           approaches to solve the capacitated vehicle routing problem
    • Authors: Teerapun Saeheaw, Nivit Charoenchai
      Pages: 171 - 191
      Abstract: The vehicle routing problem involves distribution management in the fields of transportation, distribution, and logistics, and it is one of the most important, and studied, combinatorial optimisation problems. The capacitated vehicle routing problem is an NP-hard problem, which was introduced by Dantzig and Ramser in 1959. The objective is to minimise the total distance and to maximise capacity for all of the vehicles. In this paper, the proposed parallel hybrid artificial intelligent approaches are based on cuckoo search that uses the positive features of two other optimisation techniques, central force optimisation and chemical reaction optimisation, for enhancing local search and improving the quality of the initial population, respectively. The motivation for this work is to improve the computational efficiency by getting even better results than the previous best known solutions, to study of the dynamics of various parameters of proposed approaches in searching optimum solutions, and to quicken the process of finding the optimal solution. The proposed approaches are tested on standard test instances from the literature. The test results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approaches in solving the capacitated vehicle routing problem efficiently.

  • Automatic diagnosis of pulmonary nodules using a hierarchical extreme
           learning machine model
    • Authors: Rui Hao, Zilin Qiang, Yan Qiang, Lei Ge, Juanjuan Zhao
      Pages: 192 - 201
      Abstract: To effectively improve the diagnosis of pulmonary nodules, this paper proposes a new automatic diagnosis method for pulmonary nodules based on a new hierarchical extreme learning machine (H-ELM) that can automatically carry out feature extraction, model training and pulmonary nodule detection. In our method, an adaptive histogram equalisation is used first to enhance contrast of the original pulmonary nodule image. The processed images are then input into an extreme learning machine (ELM)-based unsupervised multilayer auto-encoder to obtain more compact and meaningful high-level features of the pulmonary nodule image. Finally, supervised feature classification, which uses these high-level features of the pulmonary nodule as input data, is implemented using the ELM classifier. In the experiments, 2,800 pulmonary nodule images are used to validate the proposed method, and compared with existing pulmonary nodule diagnosis methods, our proposed method is more accurate and less time consuming and effectively avoids the complexity of manual feature extraction.

      Abstract: With almost all educated individuals having access to computing cum communication gadgets like mobiles, tablets, PCs, and laptops, online social networks (OSNs) have become the default means of networking among majority of individuals. OSNs have become an inseparable part of daily lives attracting more than one third of the current world population. Majority of the users enjoy the entertainment aspects of OSNs like gaming with friends from different geographic locations. Social gaming has spawned a whole new sub culture which helps users to discover and build connections with other users. Game development companies constantly try to publicise and attract new users using OSNs to enhance their revenues. In this context, we propose a new firefly inspired strategy to spread and disseminate games in OSNs and assist the gaming companies to decrease the acceptance-discontinuance anomaly. Collective behaviour in online social network is closely related to swarm intelligence techniques. We have also proposed a rewarding and efficient Firefly inspired QoS-based priority pricing model that will attract more users to play online games while using online social networks, thereby, enhancing the profits of the service providers and game developers.
