Call for Papers: Special Issue on “New Trends of Learning in Computational Intelligence”

A special issue of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Magazine (IEEE CIM) will be dedicated to New Trends of Learning in Computational Intelligence. Prospective  uthors are invited to submit their original unpublished research and application contributions. Comprehensive tutorial and survey papers can also be considered for this special issue.

Over the past few decades, conventional computational intelligence techniques faced severe bottlenecks in terms of algorithmic learning. Particularly, in areas of big data computation, brain science, cognition and reasoning, it is almost inevitable that intensive human intervention and time consuming trial and error efforts need to be employed before any meaningful observations can be obtained. The recent development of emerging computational intelligence techniques such as extreme learning machines (ELM) and fast solutions shed some light upon how to effectively deal with these computational bottlenecks.

Based on the observations that increasing correlation can be found among apparently different theories from different fields, as well as the increasing evidence of convergence between computational intelligence techniques and biological learning mechanisms, this special issue seeks to promote novel research investigations in computational intelligence bridging among related areas.

Topics of interest for this special issue include but are not limited to:

  • Theoretical foundations and algorithms:
    • Extreme learning machines (ELM), No-Prop algorithms and random kitchen sinks
    • Real-time learning, reasoning and cognition
    • Sequential / incremental learning
    • Clustering and feature extraction / selection
    • Closed form and non-closed form solutions
    • Multiple hidden layers solutions and random networks
    • Parallel and distributed computing / cloud computing
    • Fast implementation of deep learning
  • Applications
    • Biologically-inspired natural language processing
    • Big data analytics
    • Cognitive science / computation
    • Autonomous systems
