[25 Jan 2018] EC for missing data in classification by Cao Truong Tran

[18 Jan 2018] My research on EC for missing data in classification by Cao Truong Tran

Thanks Truong again for his great lecture on missing data. Some pictures pictures (Picture 1, Picture 2 , Picture 3 ) remind what he has discussed with us, and how to use regression to do imputation.

Another very important message is how he got ideas from different areas to come up with excellent research, forming his big PhD thesis.

[26 Jan 2017] Clustering using EC by Andrew Lensen

From Andrew: I will discuss some of the challenges faced in clustering (and particularly, why EC is useful for addressing them!). I am hoping the session will run more as an informal "tutorial"-type discussion on clustering, and so I won't ask that you read any recent papers in the area, especially what with the ongoing CEC and GECCO pressures. What would be very useful however, is if you could quickly review how k-means clustering works, and have a bit of a think about what limitations it has --- much of my research is based on limitations of k-means, and so understanding it well is important. In particular, if you haven't had a clustering lecture for a long time (or ever), please take 15 mins or so to read up. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K-means_clustering actually has a very nice discussion on k-means with a lot of detail, though it can be a bit technical for a first look.

[19 Jan 2017] GP for multi-class classification by Dr Harith Al-Sahaf

From Harith: Utilising GP for multi class classification tasks has been broadly investigated and different methods have been proposed. It is no an easy job (in fact infeasible) to explore/discuss all those methods in a 50 minutes talk; therefore, I will try to, briefly, touch some of the basic methods/approaches. In order to save the trees and your time, my list of papers comprises only a single very good journal article, a bit old one though. Please do not spend too long time on the paper: A Survey on the Application of Genetic Programming to Classification
