2019 IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence


IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence

December 6-9, 2019 Xiamen, China

 

IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Feature Analysis, Selection, and Learning in Image and Pattern Recognition (IEEE FASLIP)

In image analysis and pattern recognition, the quality of the input data determines the quality of the output (e.g. accuracy), which is known as the GIGO (Garbage In, Garbage Out) principle. For a given problem, the input data to any machine learning or data mining algorithm is almost always expressed by a number of features (attributes or variables) showing different properties of the problem. Therefore, the quality of the feature space is a key for successfully solving any image analysis and pattern recognition problem.

Computational intelligence techniques, mainly evolutionary computation, neural networks, and fuzzy logic, have been shown to be effective tools in image analysis and pattern recognition. However, their performance is still limited or influenced when the feature space is of poor quality, which may be that the dimensionality is too high (i.e. the number of features is too big) leading to the "curse of dimensionality", features are not equally important, some features are irrelevant, redundant or even noisy, the original features are not informative enough, the features are not linearly separable, and so on. All these factors may lead to various performance limitations. For example in image classification problems, these will lead to low classification accuracy, a long training time, a complex classifier, etc.

The IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Feature Analysis, Selection, and Learning in Image and Pattern Recognition (FASLIP) aims to offer world-wide academic researchers in those fields as well as people from industry an opportunity to present their latest research and to discuss current developments and applications, besides fostering closer future interaction between members of the academic and industry communities. FASLIP welcomes contributions that investigate the new theories, methods or applications of different computational intelligence paradigms to feature analysis, selection, and learning in solving various image and pattern recognition tasks.
