Scope and motivation

Over the years, huge quantities of data have been generated by large-scale scientific experiments (biomedical, “omic”, imaging, astronomical, etc.), big industrial companies and on the web. One of the characteristics of such Big Data is that it often includes multiple “views” of the underlying objects. For instance, in biomedical research, various “omics” technologies (e.g. mRNA, miRNA etc.) or imaging technologies (MRI, CT, PET, etc.) can generate multiple measurements of the same biological samples.

In order to exploit this level of complexity, new machine learning and computational intelligence methodologies such as neural networks and graph mining, amongst others, have been proposed to analyze and/or visualize these multi-facets datasets in an attempt to better exploit the information they contain.

The aim of the workshop is to solicit new approaches to real world scientific and industrial big data integration.


Relevance for WCCI

The workshop area of interest and research is one of the fundamental domains in computational intelligence research
