Evolutionary computation is the study of biologically motivated computational paradigms which exert novel ideas and inspiration from natural evolution and adaptation.  The applications of population-based heuristics in solving multiobjective optimization problems have been receiving a growing attention.  To search for a family of Pareto optimal solutions based on nature-inspiring problem solving paradigms, Evolutionary Multiobjective Optimization Algorithms (EMOs) have been successfully exploited to solve optimization problems in which the fitness measures and even constraints are uncertain and changed over time.

In this talk, I will overview the state of the art in the areas of Computational Intelligence and Evolutionary Multiobjective Optimization, aiming at the graduate students and researchers without much exposure to these growing technical fields.


About the Speaker

Gary G. Yen received the Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Notre Dame in 1992.  He is currently a Professor in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Oklahoma State University.  His research interest includes intelligent control, computational intelligence, evolutionary multiobjective optimization, conditional health monitoring, signal processing and their industrial/defense applications.

Gary was an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and IEEE Control Systems Magazine during 1994-1999, and of the IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology, IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics and IFAC Journal on Automatica and Mechatronics during 2000-2010.  He is currently serving as an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation.  Gary served as Vice President for the Technical Activities, IEEE Computational Intelligence Society in 2004-2005 and is the founding editor-in-chief of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Magazine, 2006-2009.  He was the President of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society in 2010-2011 and is elected to be a Distinguished Lecturer for the term 2012-2014.  He received Regents Distinguished Research Award from OSU in 2009, 2011 Andrew P Sage Best Transactions Paper award from IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Society, and 2013 Meritorious Service award from IEEE Computational Intelligence Society.  He is a Fellow of IEEE and IET.
