  • Deep multi-layer perceptron-based evolutionary algorithm for dynamic
           multiobjective optimization

    • Abstract: Abstract Dynamic multiobjective optimization problems (DMOPs) challenge multiobjective evolutionary algorithms (MOEAs) because of the varying Pareto-optimal sets (POS) over time. Research on DMOPs has attracted a great interest from academic, due to widespread applications of DMOPs. Recently, a few learning-based approaches have been proposed to predict new solutions in the following environments as an initial population for a multiobjective evolutionary algorithm. In this paper, we propose an alternative learning-based method for DMOPs, a deep multi-layer perceptron-based predictor to generate an initial population for the MOEA in the new environment. The historical optimal solutions are used to train a deep multi-layer perceptron which then predicts a new set of solutions as the initial population in the new environment. The deep multi-layer perceptron is incorporated with the multiobjective evolutionary algorithm based on decomposition to solve DMOPs. Empirical results demonstrate that our proposed algorithm is effective in tracking varying solutions over time and shows great superiority comparing with state-of-the-art methods.

  • An associative knowledge network model for interpretable semantic
           representation of noun context

    • Abstract: Abstract Uninterpretability has become the biggest obstacle to the wider application of deep neural network, especially in most human–machine interaction scenes. Inspired by the powerful associative computing ability of human brain neural system, a novel interpretable semantic representation model of noun context, associative knowledge network model, is proposed. The proposed network structure is composed of only pure associative relationships without relation label and is dynamically generated by analysing neighbour relationships between noun words in text, in which incremental updating and reduction reconstruction strategies can be naturally introduced. Furthermore, a novel interpretable method is designed for the practical problem of checking the semantic coherence of noun context. In proposed method, the associative knowledge network learned from the text corpus is first regarded as a background knowledge network, and then the multilevel contextual associative coupling degree features of noun words in given detection document are computed. Finally, contextual coherence detection and the location of those inconsistent noun words can be realized by using an interpretable classification method such as decision tree. Our sufficient experimental results show that above proposed method can obtain excellent performance and completely reach or even partially exceed the performance obtained by the latest deep neural network methods especially in F1 score metric. In addition, the natural interpretability and incremental learning ability of our proposed method should be extremely valuable than deep neural network methods. So, this study provides a very enlightening idea for developing interpretable machine learning methods, especially for the tasks of text semantic representation and writing error detection.

  • Survey on clothing image retrieval with cross-domain

    • Abstract: Abstract The paper summarizes the research progress on critical region recognition and deep metric learning to achieve accurate clothing image retrieval in cross-domain situations. Critical region recognition is of great value for the clothing feature extraction, effectively improving retrieval accuracy. The accuracy will decrease when solving difficult samples with similar features but different categories. Nowadays, deep metric learning is an effective way to solve this problem, which utilizes the optimization of different loss functions and ensemble network to strengthen the discrimination of clothing features. Therefore, through comparison of the experimental results of different algorithms and analysis of the accuracy of cross-domain clothing retrieval, it is demonstrated that the improvement of the retrieval accuracy in the future mainly depends on clothing important feature extraction and clothing feature discrimination.

  • Complex system health condition estimation using tree-structured simple
           recurrent unit networks

    • Abstract: Abstract Modern production has stricter requirements for the reliability of complex systems; thus, it is meaningful to estimate the health of complex systems. A complex system has diverse observation features and complex internal structures, which have been difficult to study with regard to health condition estimation. To describe continuous and gradually changing time-based characteristics of a complex system’s health condition, this study develops a feature selection model based on the information amount and stability. Then, a reliability tree analysis model is designed according to the selected relevant features, the reliability tree is developed using expert knowledge, and the node weight is calculated by the correlation coefficient generated during the feature selection process. Using the simple recurrent unit (SRU), which is a time series machine learning algorithm that achieves a high operating efficiency, the results of the reliability tree analysis are combined to establish a tree-structure SRU (T-SRU) model for complex system health condition estimation. Finally, NASA turbofan engine data are used for verification. Results show that the proposed T-SRU model can more accurately estimate a complex system’s health condition and improve the execution efficiency of the SRU networks by approximately 46%.

  • Fermatean fuzzy copula aggregation operators and similarity measures-based
           complex proportional assessment approach for renewable energy source

    • Abstract: Abstract Selecting the optimal renewable energy source (RES) is a complex multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) problem due to the association of diverse conflicting criteria with uncertain information. The utilization of Fermatean fuzzy numbers is successfully treated with the qualitative data and uncertain information that often occur in realistic MCDM problems. In this paper, an extended complex proportional assessment (COPRAS) approach is developed to treat the decision-making problems in a Fermatean fuzzy set (FFS) context. First, to aggregate the Fermatean fuzzy information, a new Fermatean fuzzy Archimedean copula-based Maclaurin symmetric mean operator is introduced with its desirable characteristics. This proposed operator not only considers the interrelationships between multiple numbers of criteria, but also associates more than one marginal distribution, thus avoiding information loss in the process of aggregation. Second, new similarity measures are developed to quantify the degree of similarity between Fermatean fuzzy perspectives more effectively and are further utilized to compute the weights of the criteria. Third, an integrated Fermatean fuzzy-COPRAS approach using the Archimedean copula-based Maclaurin symmetric mean operator and similarity measure has been developed to assess and rank the alternatives under the FFS perspective. Furthermore, a case study of RES selection is presented to validate the feasibility and practicality of the developed model. Comparative and sensitivity analyses are used to check the reliability and strength of the proposed method.

  • A decomposition-based many-objective evolutionary algorithm with optional
           performance indicators

    • Abstract: Evolutionary algorithms (EAs) have shown excellent performance for solving optimization problems with multiple objectives as they can get a set of compromising solutions on a single run. However, when the number of objectives increases, an efficient selection is significant to find a good set of solutions. In this paper, a decomposition-based many-objective evolutionary algorithm with optional performance indicators is proposed, in which the decomposition strategy is utilized to convert a many-objective optimization problem into a set of single-objective optimization problems, and the criterion to select a solution for the next generation along each reference is randomly set to convergence or diversity performance. The performance of the proposed method is evaluated on two sets of benchmark problems, and the experimental results showed the efficiency of the proposed method compared with seven state-of-the-art MaOEAs.

  • Hall effect on MHD Jeffrey fluid flow with Cattaneo–Christov heat flux
           model: an application of stochastic neural computing

    • Abstract: Exploration and exploitation of intelligent computing infrastructures are becoming of great interest for the research community to investigate different fields of science and engineering offering new improved versions of problem-solving soft computing-based methodologies. The current investigation presents a novel artificial neural network-based solution methodology for the presented problem addressing the properties of Hall current on magneto hydrodynamics (MHD) flow with Jeffery fluid towards a nonlinear stretchable sheet with thickness variation. Generalized heat flux characteristics employing Cattaneo–Christov heat flux model (CCHFM) along with modified Ohms law have been studied. The modelled PDEs are reduced into a dimensionless set of ODEs by introducing appropriate transformations. The temperature and velocity profiles of the fluid are examined numerically with the help of the Adam Bashforth method for different values of physical parameters to study the Hall current with Jeffrey fluid and CCHFM. The examination of the nonlinear input–output with neural network for numerical results is also conducted for the obtained dataset of the system by using Levenberg Marquardt backpropagated networks. The value of Skin friction coefficient, Reynold number, Deborah number, Nusselt number, local wall friction factors and local heat flux are calculated and interpreted for different parameters to have better insight into flow dynamics. The precision level is examined exhaustively by mean square error, error histograms, training states information, regression and fitting plots. Moreover, the performance of the designed solver is certified by mean square error-based learning curves, regression metrics and error histogram analysis. Several significant results for Deborah number, Hall parameters and magnetic field parameters have been presented in graphical and tabular form.

  • Student achievement prediction using deep neural network from multi-source
           campus data

    • Abstract: Finding students at high risk of poor academic performance as early as possible plays an important role in improving education quality. To do so, most existing studies have used the traditional machine learning algorithms to predict students’ achievement based on their behavior data, from which behavior features are extracted manually thanks to expert experience and knowledge. However, owing to an increase in the varieties and overall volume of behavioral data, it has become more and more challenging to identify high-quality handcrafted features. In this paper, we propose an end-to-end deep learning model that automatically extracts features from students’ multi-source heterogeneous behavior data to predict academic performance. The key innovation of this model is that it uses long short-term memory networks to capture inherent time-series features for each type of behavior, and it takes two-dimensional convolutional networks to extract correlation features among different behaviors. We conducted experiments with four types of daily behavior data from students of the university in Beijing. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed deep model method outperforms several machine learning algorithms.

  • Self-adaptive opposition-based differential evolution with subpopulation
           strategy for numerical and engineering optimization problems

    • Abstract: Abstract Opposition-based differential evolution (ODE) is a well-known DE variant that employs opposition-based learning (OBL) to accelerate the convergence speed. However, the existing OBL variants are population-based, which causes many shortcomings. The value of the jumping rate is not self-adaptively adjusted, so the algorithm easily traps into local optima. The population-based OBL wastes fitness evaluations when the algorithm converges to sub-optimal. In this paper, we proposed a novel OBL called subpopulation-based OBL (SPOBL) with a self-adaptive parameter control strategy. In SPOBL, the jumping rate acts on the individual, and the subpopulation is selected according to the individual’s jumping rate. In the self-adaptive parameter control strategy, the surviving individual’s jumping rate in each iteration will participate in the self-adaptive process. A generalized Lehmer mean is introduced to achieve an equilibrium between exploration and exploitation. We used DE and advanced DE variants combined with SPOBL to verify performance. The results of performance are evaluated on the CEC 2017 and CEC 2020 test suites. The SPOBL shows better performance compared to other OBL variants in terms of benchmark functions as well as real-world constrained optimization problems.

  • Assessing cloud manufacturing applications using an optimally rectified
           FAHP approach

    • Abstract: Abstract Cloud Manufacturing (CMfg) is a new manufacturing paradigm that promises to reduce costs, improve data analysis, increase efficiency and flexibility, and provide manufacturers with closer partnerships. However, most past CMfg research has focused on either the information technology infrastructure or the planning and scheduling of a hypothetical CMfg system. In addition, the cost effectiveness of a CMfg application has rarely been assessed. As a result, a manufacturer is not sure whether to adopt a CMfg application or not. To address this issue, an optimally rectified fuzzy analytical hierarchy process (OR-FAHP) approach is proposed in this study to assess a CMfg application. The OR-FAHP approach solves the inconsistency problem of the conventional FAHP method, a well-known technology assessment technique, to make the analysis results more trustable. The OR-FAHP approach has been applied to assess and compare 10 CMfg applications.

  • Star topology convolution for graph representation learning

    • Abstract: Abstract We present a novel graph convolutional method called star topology convolution (STC). This method makes graph convolution more similar to conventional convolutional neural networks (CNNs) in Euclidean feature spaces. STC learns subgraphs which have a star topology rather than learning a fixed graph like most spectral methods. Due to the properties of a star topology, STC is graph-scale free (without a fixed graph size constraint). It has fewer parameters in its convolutional filter and is inductive, so it is more flexible and can be applied to large and evolving graphs. The convolutional filter is learnable and localized, similar to CNNs in Euclidean feature spaces, and can share weights across graphs. To test the method, STC was compared with the state-of-the-art graph convolutional methods in a supervised learning setting on nine node properties prediction benchmark datasets: Cora, Citeseer, Pubmed, PPI, Arxiv, MAG, ACM, DBLP, and IMDB. The experimental results showed that STC achieved the state-of-the-art performance on all these datasets and maintained good robustness. In an essential protein identification task, STC outperformed the state-of-the-art essential protein identification methods. An application of using pretrained STC as the embedding for feature extraction of some downstream classification tasks was introduced. The experimental results showed that STC can share weights across different graphs and be used as the embedding to improve the performance of downstream tasks.

  • Design and implementation of fault-tolerant control strategies for a real
           underactuated manipulator robot

    • Abstract: Abstract This paper presents the design and implementation of four control strategies applied to a real underactuated manipulator robot with 3-DOF (Degrees of Freedom). Additionally, an original methodology for controlled oscillatory compensations is designed and implemented to mitigate the effect of a passive joint on the overall performance of this manipulator robot. The objective of this methodology is to create controlled oscillations that allow the faulty link and its (passive) joint to physically align with their adjacent previous link. The implemented control techniques are sinh–cosh, neural compensation, gain scheduling PID, and gain scheduling sinh–cosh. The real robot in which these four control strategies and oscillatory compensation methodology are implemented is a SCARA (Selective Compliant Assembly Robot Arm) robot. To assess controller performance—once the 3-DOF underactuated manipulator robot starts its trajectory—after t = 4.5 s, a fault is activated in its joint No. 2, converting it into a passive joint. The performance indicators IA (index of agreement), RMS (Root Mean Square), and RSD (Residual Standard Deviation) are used to analyze, compare, and evaluate the behavior of the four control strategies and the compensation methodology.

  • A two-stage infill strategy and surrogate-ensemble assisted expensive
           many-objective optimization

    • Abstract: Abstract Many optimization problems are expensive in practical applications. The surrogate-assisted optimization methods have attracted extensive attention as they can get satisfyingly optimal solutions in a limited computing resource. In this paper, we propose a two-stage infill strategy and surrogate-ensemble assisted optimization algorithm for solving expensive many-objective optimization problems. In this method, the population is optimized by a surrogate ensemble. Then a two-stage infill strategy is proposed to select individuals for real evaluations. The infill strategy considers individuals with better convergence or greater uncertainty. To calculate the uncertainty, we consider two aspects. One is the approximate variance of the current surrogate ensemble and the other one is the approximate variance of the historical surrogate ensemble. Finally, the population is revised by the recently updated surrogate ensemble. In experiments, we testify our method on two sets of many-objective benchmark problems. The results demonstrate the superiority of our proposed algorithm compared with the state-of-the-art algorithms for solving computationally expensive many-objective optimization problems.

  • A systematic review of homomorphic encryption and its contributions in
           healthcare industry

    • Abstract: Abstract Cloud computing and cloud storage have contributed to a big shift in data processing and its use. Availability and accessibility of resources with the reduction of substantial work is one of the main reasons for the cloud revolution. With this cloud computing revolution, outsourcing applications are in great demand. The client uses the service by uploading their data to the cloud and finally gets the result by processing it. It benefits users greatly, but it also exposes sensitive data to third-party service providers. In the healthcare industry, patient health records are digital records of a patient’s medical history kept by hospitals or health care providers. Patient health records are stored in data centers for storage and processing. Before doing computations on data, traditional encryption techniques decrypt the data in their original form. As a result, sensitive medical information is lost. Homomorphic encryption can protect sensitive information by allowing data to be processed in an encrypted form such that only encrypted data is accessible to service providers. In this paper, an attempt is made to present a systematic review of homomorphic cryptosystems with its categorization and evolution over time. In addition, this paper also includes a review of homomorphic cryptosystem contributions in healthcare.

  • New bag-of-feature for histopathology image classification using
           reinforced cat swarm algorithm and weighted Gaussian mixture modelling

    • Abstract: Abstract The progress in digital histopathology for computer-aided diagnosis leads to advancement in automated histopathological image classification system. However, heterogeneity and complexity in structural background make it a challenging process. Therefore, this paper introduces robust and reliable new bag-of-feature framework. The optimal visual words are obtained by applying proposed reinforcement cat swarm optimization algorithm. Moreover, the frequency of occurrence of each visual words is depicted through histogram using new weighted Gaussian mixture modelling method. Reinforcement cat swarm optimization algorithm is evaluated on the IEEE CEC 2017 benchmark function problems and compared with other state-of-the-art algorithms. Moreover, statistical test analysis is done on acquired mean and the best fitness values from benchmark functions. The proposed classification model effectively identifies and classifies the different categories of histopathological images. Furthermore, the comparative experimental result analysis of proposed reinforcement cat swarm optimization-based bag-of-feature is performed on standard quality metrics measures. The observation states that reinforcement cat swarm optimization-based bag-of-feature outperforms the other methods and provides promising results.

  • End-to-end human inspired learning based system for dynamic obstacle

    • Abstract: Abstract As a first, the paper proposes modelling and learning of specific behaviors for dynamic obstacle avoidance in end-to-end motion planning. In the literature many end-to-end methods have been used in simulators to drive a car and to apply the learnt strategies to avoid the obstacles using the lane changing, following the vehicle as per the traffic rules, driving in-between the lane boundaries, and many more behaviors. The proposed method is designed to avoid obstacles in the scenarios where a dynamic obstacle is headed directly towards the robot from different directions. To avoid the critical encounter of the dynamic obstacles, we trained a novel deep neural network (DNN) with two specific behavioral obstacle avoidance strategies, namely “head-on collision avoidance” and “stop and move”. These two strategies of obstacle avoidance come from the human behavior of obstacle avoidance. Looking at the current frame only, for a very similar visual display of the scenario, the two strategies have contrasting outputs and overall outcomes that makes learning very difficult. A random data recording over general simulations is unlikely to record the corner cases of both behaviors that rarely occur, and a behavior-specific training used in this paper intensifies the same cases for a better learning of the robot in such corner cases. We calculate the intention of the obstacle, whether it will move or not. This proposed method is compared with three state-of-the-art methods of motion planning, namely Timed-Elastic Band, Dynamic Window Approach and Nonlinear Probabilistic Velocity Obstacle. The proposed method beats all the state-of-the-art methods used for comparisons.

  • A novel method to estimate incomplete PLTS information based on
           knowledge-match degree with reliability and its application in LSGDM

    • Abstract: Abstract In recent years, large-scale group decision making (LSGDM) has been researched in various fields. Probabilistic linguistic term set (PLTS) is an useful tool to describe evaluation information of experts when solving the LSGDM problem. As decision-making becomes more complex, in most cases, decision makers are unable to give complete evaluations over alternatives, which leads to the lack of evaluation information. To estimate missing information, this paper proposes a new method based on knowledge-match degree with reliability that knowledge-match degree means the matching level between evaluation values provided by individual and ones from group. The possession of reliability associated with evaluation information depends on fuzzy entropy of PLTS. Compared with previous methods, this approach can enhance accuracy and reliability of estimated values of missing evaluation information. Based on this method, we develop a complete decision process of LSGDM including information collection, subgroup detecting, consensus reaching process (CRP), information aggregation and ranking alternatives. Subsequently, a case about pharmaceutical manufacturer selection is used to illustrate the proposed decision method. To verify effectiveness and superiority, we make a comparative analysis with other methods and finally draw a conclusion.

  • An improved artificial bee colony algorithm based on Bayesian estimation

    • Abstract: Abstract Artificial bee colony (ABC) algorithm was proposed by mimicking the cooperative foraging behaviors of bees. As a member of swarm intelligence algorithms, ABC has some advantages in handling optimization problems. However, it has the exploration capacity over the exploitation capacity, which may lead to slow convergence speed and lower solution accuracy. Hence, to enhance the performance of the algorithm, a novel ABC based on Bayesian estimation (BEABC) is presented in this paper. First, instead of using the fitness ratio, the selection probability in ABC is replaced with a new probability calculated by Bayesian estimation. Second, to help the bees adopt more useful information during updating new food sources, a directional guidance mechanism is designed for onlooker bees and scout bees. Finally, the comprehensive performance of BEABC is evaluated by 24 single-objective test functions. The numerical experiment results indicate that BEABC dominates its peers over most test functions, and the significant statistics show that the significant excellence rate of BEABC is \(76\%\) in the overall comparison. In addition, to further test the performance of BEABC, seven multi-objective problems and two real-word optimization problems are solved. The comparison results show that BEABC can achieve better results than other EA competitors.
