Workshop - Nature-Inspired Algorithms and Neural Networks (NIANN2018)
Nature-inspired algorithms such as particle swarm optimization and firefly algorithm have become effective and popular in recent years, and they have been applied to optimize design parameters in many nonlinear problems in engineering and industries. These algorithms have also been used to tune and optimize hyperparameters related to artificial neural networks with applications in deep learning and data mining. This workshop intends to provide a timely platform for researchers to exchange ideas and discuss the recent developments in both areas of nature-inspired computation and artificial neural networks so as to enable further developments.
