  • Recent studies on optimisation method of Grey Wolf Optimiser (GWO): a
           review (2014–2017)
    • Abstract: Today, finding a viable solution for any real world problem focusing on combinatorial of problems is a crucial task. However, using optimisation techniques, a viable best solution for a specific problem can be obtained, developed and solved despite the existing limitations of the implemented technique. Furthermore, population based optimisation techniques are now a current interest and has spawned many new and improved techniques to rectify many engineering problems. One of these methods is the Grey Wolf Optimiser (GWO), which resembles the grey wolf’s leadership hierarchy and its hunting behavior in nature. The GWO adopts the hierarchical nature of grey wolfs and lists the best solution as alpha, followed by beta and delta in descending order. Additionally, its hunting technique of tracking, encircling and attacking are also modeled mathematically to find the best optimised solution. This paper presents the results from an extensive study of 83 published papers from previous studies related to GWO in various applications such as parameter tuning, economy dispatch problem, and cost estimating to name a few. A discussion on the properties of GWO algorithm and how it minimises the different problems in the different applications is presented, as well as an analysis on the research trend of GWO optimisation technique in various applications from year 2014 to 2017. Based on the literatures, it was observed that GWO has the ability to solve single and multi-objective problems efficiently due to its good local search criteria that performs exceptionally well for different problems and solutions.

  • Arabic word sense disambiguation: a review
    • Abstract: Word sense disambiguation (WSD) is a specific task of computational linguistics which aims at automatically identifying the correct sense of a given ambiguous word from a set of predefined senses. In WSD the goal is to tag each ambiguous word in a text with one of the senses known a priori. In Arabic, the main cause of word ambiguity is the lack of diacritics of the most digital documents so the same word can occur with different senses. In this paper, we introduce the reader to the motivation for solving the ambiguity of Arabic words and we detail a description of the task. We overview supervised, unsupervised, semi-supervised and knowledge-based approaches. The evaluation of Arabic WSD systems is also discussed. Finally, we discuss open problems and future directions.

  • Outliers detection methods in wireless sensor networks
    • Abstract: Detection and accommodation of outliers are crucial in a number of contexts, in which collected data from a given environment is subsequently used for assessing its running conditions or for data-based decision-making. Although a significant number of studies on this subject can be found in literature, a comprehensive empirical assessment in the context of local online detection in wireless sensor networks is still missing. The present work aims at filling this gap by offering an empirical evaluation of two state-of-the-art online detection methods. The first methodology is based on a Least Squares-Support Vector Machine technique, along with a sliding window-based learning algorithm, while the second approach relies on Principal Component Analysis and on the robust orthonormal projection approximation subspace tracking with rank-1 modification. The performance and implementability of these methods are evaluated using a generated non-stationary time-series and a test-bed consisting of a benchmark three-tank system and a wireless sensor network, where deployed algorithms are implemented under a multi-agent framework.

  • A comparative study of pattern recognition algorithms for predicting the
           inpatient mortality risk using routine laboratory measurements
    • Abstract: Laboratory tests are a common and relatively cheap way to assess the general health status of patients. Various publications showed the potential of laboratory measurements for predicting inpatient mortality using statistical methodologies. However, these efforts are basically limited to the use of logistic regression models. In the present paper we use anonymized data from about 40,000 inpatient admissions to the Inselspital in Bern (Switzerland) to evaluate the potential of powerful pattern recognition algorithms employed for this particular risk prediction. In addition to the age and sex of the inpatients, a set of 33 laboratory measurements, frequently available at the Inselspital, are used as basic variables. In a large empirical evaluation we demonstrate that recent pattern recognition algorithms (such as random forests, gradient boosted trees or neural networks) outperform the more traditional approaches based on logistic regression. Moreover, we show how the predictions of the pattern recognition algorithms, which cannot be directly interpreted in general, can be calibrated to output a meaningful probabilistic risk score.

  • Character and numeral recognition for non-Indic and Indic scripts: a
    • Abstract: A collection of different scripts is employed in writing languages throughout the world. Character and numeral recognition of a particular script is a key area in the field of pattern recognition. In this paper, we have presented a comprehensive survey on character and numeral recognition of non-Indic and Indic scripts. Many researchers have done work on character and numeral recognition from the most recent couple of years. In perspective of this, few strategies for character/numeral have been developed so far. There are an immense number of frameworks available for printed and handwritten character recognition for non-Indic scripts. But, only a limited number of systems are offered for character/numeral recognition of Indic scripts. However, few endeavors have been made on the recognition of Bangla, Devanagari, Gurmukhi, Kannada, Oriya and Tamil scripts. In this paper, we have additionally examined major challenges/issues for character/numeral recognition. The efforts in two directions (non-Indic and Indic scripts) are reflected in this paper. When compared with non-Indic scripts, the research on character recognition of Indic scripts has not achieved that perfection yet. The techniques used for recognition of non-Indic scripts may be used for recognition of Indic scripts (printed/handwritten text) and vice versa to improve the recognition rates. It is also noticed that the research in this field is quietly thin and still more research is to be done, particularly in the case of handwritten Indic scripts documents.

  • Ontologies’ mappings validation and annotation enrichment through
    • Abstract: Pay as you go ontology matching, the technique of first executing an automatic matching tool and then engaging users to improve the quality of an alignment produced by the tool is gaining popularity. Most of the existing techniques employ a single user to validate mappings by annotating them using terms from a controlled set such as “correct” or “incorrect”. This single user based approach of validating mappings using a controlled set of vocabulary is restrictive. First, the use of controlled vocabulary does not maximize the user’s effort since it restrains him/her from adding more meaning to the concepts participating in low-quality mappings using his/her own terms. Secondly, a single user approach of validating a wide range of mappings is error prone since even the most experienced user may not be familiar with all subtopics contained in the input ontologies. We demonstrate in this research that through tagging of concepts participating in mappings flagged as low-quality, we can achieve both mappings’ validation and ontology’s metadata enrichment by adding quality annotations to the ontology.

  • A comprehensive study and analysis on SAT-solvers: advances, usages and
    • Abstract: Boolean satisfiability (SAT) has been studied for the last twenty years. Advances have been made allowing SAT solvers to be used in many applications including formal verification of digital designs. However, performance and capacity of SAT solvers are still limited. From the practical side, many of the existing applications based on SAT solvers use them as blackboxes in which the problem is translated into a monolithic conjunctive normal form instance and then throw it to the SAT solver with no interaction between the application and the SAT solver. This paper presents a comprehensive study and analysis of the latest developments in SAT-solver and new approaches that used in branching heuristics, Boolean constraint propagation and conflict analysis techniques during the last two decade. In addition, the paper provides the most effective techniques in using SAT solvers as verification techniques, mainly model checkers, to enhance the SAT solver performance, efficiency and productivity. Moreover, the paper presents the remarkable accomplishments and the main challenges facing SAT-solver techniques and contrasts between different techniques according to their efficiency, algorithms, usage and feasibility.

  • A comprehensive investigation into the performance, robustness,
           scalability and convergence of chaos-enhanced evolutionary algorithms with
           boundary constraints
    • Abstract: The purpose of this research is to investigate the effects of different chaotic maps on the exploration/exploitation capabilities of evolutionary algorithms (EAs). To do so, some well-known chaotic maps are embedded into a self-organizing version of EAs. This combination is implemented through using chaotic sequences instead of random parameters of optimization algorithm. However, using a chaos system may result in exceeding of the optimization variables beyond their practical boundaries. In order to cope with such a deficiency, the evolutionary method is equipped with a recent spotlighted technique, known as the boundary constraint handling method, which controls the movements of chromosomes within the feasible solution domain. Such a technique aids the heuristic agents towards the feasible solutions, and thus, abates the undesired effects of the chaotic diversification. In this study, 9 different variants of chaotic maps are considered to precisely investigate different aspects of coupling the chaos phenomenon with the baseline EA, i.e. the convergence, scalability, robustness, performance and complexity. The simulation results reveal that some of the maps (chaotic number generators) are more successful than the others, and thus, can be used to enhance the performance of the standard EA.

  • Neonatal intensive care decision support systems using artificial
           intelligence techniques: a systematic review
    • Abstract: A neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) provides critical services to preterm and high-risk infants. Over the years, many tools and techniques have been introduced to support the clinical decisions made by specialists in the NICU. This study systematically reviewed the different technologies used in neonatal decision support systems (DSS), including cognitive analysis, artificial neural networks, data mining techniques, multi-agent systems, and highlighted their role in patient diagnosis, prognosis, monitoring, and healthcare management. Articles on NICU DSS were surveyed, Searches were based on the PubMed, Science Direct, and IEEE databases and only English articles published after 1990 were included. The overall search strategy was to retrieve articles that included terms that were related to “NICU Decision Support Systems” or “Artificial Intelligence” and “Neonatal”. Different methods and artificial intelligence techniques used in NICU decision support systems were assessed and related outcomes, variables, methods and performance measures was reported and discussed. Because of the dynamic, heterogeneous, and real-time environment of the NICU, the processes and medical rules that are followed within a NICU are complicated, and the data records that are produced are complex and frequent. Therefore, a single tool or technology could not cover all the needs of a NICU. However, it is important to examine and deploy new temporal data mining approaches and system architectures, such as multi-agent systems, services, and sensors, to provide integrated real-time solutions for NICU.

  • Metaheuristic research: a comprehensive survey
    • Abstract: Because of successful implementations and high intensity, metaheuristic research has been extensively reported in literature, which covers algorithms, applications, comparisons, and analysis. Though, little has been evidenced on insightful analysis of metaheuristic performance issues, and it is still a “black box” that why certain metaheuristics perform better on specific optimization problems and not as good on others. The performance related analyses performed on algorithms are mostly quantitative via performance validation metrics like mean error, standard deviation, and co-relations have been used. Moreover, the performance tests are often performed on specific benchmark functions—few studies are those which involve real data from scientific or engineering optimization problems. In order to draw a comprehensive picture of metaheuristic research, this paper performs a survey of metaheuristic research in literature which consists of 1222 publications from year 1983 to 2016 (33 years). Based on the collected evidence, this paper addresses four dimensions of metaheuristic research: introduction of new algorithms, modifications and hybrids, comparisons and analysis, and research gaps and future directions. The objective is to highlight potential open questions and critical issues raised in literature. The work provides guidance for future research to be conducted more meaningfully that can serve for the good of this area of research.

  • An overview on trajectory outlier detection
    • Abstract: The task of trajectory outlier detection is to discover trajectories or their segments which differ substantially from or are inconsistent with the remaining set. In this paper, we make an overview on trajectory outlier detection algorithms from three aspects. Firstly, algorithms considering multi-attribute. In this kind of algorithms, as many key attributes as possible, such as speed, direction, position, time, are explored to represent the original trajectory and to compare with the others. Secondly, suitable distance metric. Many researches try to find or develop suitable distance metric which can measure the divergence between trajectories effectively and reliably. Thirdly, other studies attempt to improve existing algorithms to find outliers with less time and space complexity, and even more reliable. In this paper, we survey and summarize some classic trajectory outlier detection algorithms. In order to provide an overview, we analyze their features from the three dimensions above and discuss their benefits and shortcomings. It is hope that this review will serve as the steppingstone for those interested in advancing moving object outlier detection.

  • Adaptive network based fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) training approaches:
           a comprehensive survey
    • Abstract: In the structure of ANFIS, there are two different parameter groups: premise and consequence. Training ANFIS means determination of these parameters using an optimization algorithm. In the first ANFIS model developed by Jang, a hybrid learning approach was proposed for training. In this approach, while premise parameters are determined by using gradient descent (GD), consequence parameters are found out with least squares estimation (LSE) method. Since ANFIS has been developed, it is used in modelling and identification of numerous systems and successful results have been achieved. The selection of optimization method utilized in training is very important to get effective results with ANFIS. It is seen that derivate based (GD, LSE etc.) and non-derivative based (heuristic algorithms such us GA, PSO, ABC etc.) algorithms are used in ANFIS training. Nevertheless, it has been observed that there is a trend toward heuristic based ANFIS training algorithms for better performance recently. At the same time, it seems to be proposed in derivative and heuristic based hybrid algorithms. Within the scope of this study, the heuristic and hybrid approaches utilized in ANFIS training are examined in order to guide researchers in their study. In addition, the final status in ANFIS training is evaluated and it is aimed to shed light on further studies related to ANFIS training.

  • A novel type of soft rough covering and its application to multicriteria
           group decision making
    • Abstract: In this paper, we contribute to a recent and successful modelization of uncertainty, which the practitioner often encounters in the formulation of multicriteria group decision making problems. To be precise, in order to approach the uncertainty issue we introduce a novel type of soft rough covering by means of soft neighborhoods, and then we use it to improve decision making in a multicriteria group environment. Our research method is as follows. Firstly we introduce the soft covering upper and lower approximation operators of soft rough coverings. Then its relationships with well-established types of soft rough coverings are analyzed. Secondly, we define and investigate the measure degree of our novel soft rough covering. With this tool we produce a new class of soft rough sets. Finally, we propose an application of such soft rough covering model to multicriteria group decision making by means of an algorithmic solution. A fully developed example supports the implementability of this decision making method.

  • A multiple surrogates based PSO algorithm
    • Abstract: Particle swarm optimization (PSO) usually requires a large number of fitness evaluations to obtain a sufficiently good solution, which poses an obstacle for applying PSO to computationally expensive problems. In this paper, a multiple surrogates based PSO (MSPSO) framework is proposed, which consists of an inner loop optimization and an outer one. In the outer loop optimization, a PSO algorithm is used in both the optimization mode and the sampling one. In the inner loop optimization, a multiple surrogate based parallel optimization strategy is designed. Furthermore, the search history and the possible solutions from the outer loop optimization are provided for the inner one, and the result of the inner loop optimization is employed to guide the search of the outer one. To verify the performance of the proposed approach, a number of numerical experiments are conducted by using ten benchmark test functions and three time series regression modeling problems. The results indicate that the proposed framework is capable of converging to a good solution for the low-dimensional, non-convex and multimodal problems.

  • Recent granular computing frameworks for mining relational data
    • Abstract: A lot of data currently being collected is stored in databases with a relational structure. The process of knowledge discovery from such data is a more challenging task compared with single table data. Granular computing, which has successfully been applied to mining data storable in single tables, is a promising direction for discovering knowledge from relational data. This paper summarizes some recent developments in the area of application of granular computing to mining relational data. Four granular computing frameworks for processing relational data are introduced and compared. The paper shows how each of the frameworks represents relational data, constructs information granules and build patterns based on the granules. A generic system that can employ any of the frameworks to discover knowledge from relational data is also outlined.

  • Algorithms for frequent itemset mining: a literature review
    • Abstract: Data Analytics plays an important role in the decision making process. Insights from such pattern analysis offer vast benefits, including increased revenue, cost cutting, and improved competitive advantage. However, the hidden patterns of the frequent itemsets become more time consuming to be mined when the amount of data increases over the time. Moreover, significant memory consumption is needed in mining the hidden patterns of the frequent itemsets due to a heavy computation by the algorithm. Therefore, an efficient algorithm is required to mine the hidden patterns of the frequent itemsets within a shorter run time and with less memory consumption while the volume of data increases over the time period. This paper reviews and presents a comparison of different algorithms for Frequent Pattern Mining (FPM) so that a more efficient FPM algorithm can be developed.

  • Application of artificial intelligence techniques in the petroleum
           industry: a review
    • Abstract: In recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) has been widely applied to optimization problems in the petroleum exploration and production industry. This survey offers a detailed literature review based on different types of AI algorithms, their application areas in the petroleum industry, publication year, and geographical regions of their development. For this purpose, we classify AI methods into four main categories including evolutionary algorithms, swarm intelligence, fuzzy logic, and artificial neural networks. Additionally, we examine these types of algorithms with respect to their applications in petroleum engineering. The review highlights the exceptional performance of AI methods in optimization of various objective functions essential for industrial decision making including minimum miscibility pressure, oil production rate, and volume of \(\hbox {CO}_{2}\) sequestration. Furthermore, hybridization and/or combination of various AI techniques can be successfully applied to solve important optimization problems and obtain better solutions. The detailed descriptions provided in this review serve as a comprehensive reference of AI optimization techniques for further studies and research in this area.
