Kooperationsmöglichkeiten mit Japan

japanAm Mittwoch, dem 26. Juni, sprachen fünf Vertreterinnen und Vertreter der Tokyoter-Schule „Kisarazu“ über Kooperationsmöglichkeiten mit Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ansgar Neuenhofer, Fakultät für Bauingenieurwesen und Umwelttechnik, mit Prof. Dr. Thomas Bartz-Beielstein, Fakultät für Informatik und Ingenieurwissenschaften und mit Dr. Elisabeth Holuscha, Leiterin des International Office der Fachhochschule Köln.
Es gibt bereits eine Kooperationsvereinbarung zwischen der FH Köln und einer japanischen Hochschule: Im Jahre 2010 wurde ein “Agreement on Academic Cooperation” zwischen der FH und dem Kobe Institute of Computing, Department of Information Systems, abgeschlossen, das den gegenseitigen Austausch in Lehre und Forschung regelt.

Genetic Programming Theory and Practice X Available

The book Genetic Programming Theory and Practice X, which is edited by R. Riolo, K. Vladislavleva, M.D. Ritchie, and J. Moore is published by Springer.
“Contributions, written by the foremost international researchers and practitioners of Genetic Programming (GP), explore the synergy between theoretical and empirical results on real-world problems, producing a comprehensive view of the state of the art in GP” (from Springer’s announcement). Two members of the SPOTSeven Team (Oliver and Thomas) contributed the article A Framework for the Empirical Analysis of Genetic Programming System Performance to this book(1). They introduce a framework for statistical sound, reproducible empirical research in Genetic Programming (GP). This framework provides tools to understand GP algorithms and heuristics and their interaction with problems of varying difficulty. Following an approach where scientific claims are broken down to testable statistical hypotheses and GP runs are treated as experiments, the framework helps to achieve statistically verified results of high reproducibility.
