Special Issue for the International Journal
K.U.Leuven/University of Southampton
Swarm Intelligence is a relatively new subfield of artificial intelligence which studies the emergent collective intelligence of groups of simple agents. It is based on the social insects metaphor where a number of insects with limited capabilities are able to come to intelligent solutions for complex problems. In recent decades the Swarm Intelligence paradigm has received widespread attention in research, mainly as Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) and Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO). Successful applications of swarm intelligence include the modelling of agent behaviour, such as the large numbers of fighting individuals in the battle scenes of the Lord of the Rings movies, and various optimization problems, such as the routing of packages through networks, the travelling salesman problem, scheduling, etc.
This special issue focuses on the intersection of the swarm intelligence paradigm with Machine Learning and Knowledge Discovery in Data. We solicit high-quality, previously unpublished papers where both domains are properly addressed.
Possible topics for papers include:
