——————————————————–

The Special Session on Evolutionary Machine Learning (EML) of Evo Apps
will provide a specialized forum of discussion and exchange of
information for researchers interested in exploring approaches that
combine nature and nurture, with the long-term goal of evolving
Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Giving response to the growing interest in the area, and consequent
advances of the state-of-the-art, the special session covers
theoretical and practical advances on the combination of Evolutionary
Computation (EC) and Machine Learning (ML) techniques.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
– EC as an ML technique: Using EC to solve typical ML tasks such as
Classification or Clustering
– EC applied ML algorithms: Neuroevolution, Feature Selection, Feature
Engineering, Evolutionary Adversarial Models
– ML applied to EC: Surrogate-model design by ML for EC, Learning
Problem Structure, ML for Diversity, Designing Search Strategies,
Predicting Promising Regions, Using ML to Decrease Computational
Effort
– Real world applications issues: EC for Fairness, Robustness,
Trustworthiness and Explainability; Green EML
– Emerging topics: EC for AutoML; EC for Transfer Learning; EC for
Multitasking; Evolving Learning Functions, Neurons and Linkage; EC for
Verification and Validation of ML
