Cluster ensembles have recently emerged as a powerful alternative to standard cluster analysis, aggregating several input data clusterings to generate a single output clustering, with improved robustness and stability. From the early work, these techniques held great promise; however, most of them generate the final solution based on incomplete information(More)
The vertebrate immune system is a robust and powerful information process system that demonstrates features such as distributed control, parallel processing and adaptation and learning via experience. Artificial Immune Systems (AIS) are machine-learning algorithms that embody some of the principles and attempt to take advantages of the benefits of natural(More)
Motivation Perhaps the greatest challenge of modern biology is to develop accurate in silico models of cells. To do this we require computational formalisms for both simulation (how according to the model the state of the cell evolves over time), and identification (learning a model cell from observation of states). We propose the use of qualitative(More)
In this paper, we examine the clonal selection algorithm CLONALG and the suggestion that it is suitable for pattern recognition. CLONALG is tested over a series of binary character recognition tasks and its performance compared to a set of basic binary matching algorithms. A number of enhancements are made to the algorithm to improve its performance and the(More)
1 2 Abstract For many years, researchers in the field of mobile robotics have been investigating the use of genetic and evolutionary computation (GEC) to aid the development of mobile robot controllers. Alongside the fundamental choices of the GEC mechanism and its operators , which apply to both simulated and physical evolutionary robotics, other issues(More)
A central aim of robotics research is to design robots that can perform in the real world; a real world that is often highly changeable in nature. An important challenge for researchers is therefore to produce robots that can improve their performance when the environment is stable, and adapt when the environment changes. This paper reports on experiments(More)
MOTIVATION It is far from trivial to select the most effective clustering method and its parameterization, for a particular set of gene expression data, because there are a very large number of possibilities. Although many researchers still prefer to use hierarchical clustering in one form or another, this is often sub-optimal. Cluster ensemble research(More)
This paper reports on novel work using clonal selection (CS) for dynamic function optimisation. A comparison is made between evolution strategies (ES) and CS, for the optimisation of two significantly different dynamic functions at 2, 5 and 10 dimensions. Firstly a sensitivity analysis was performed for both the CS and the ES for both fitness functions.(More)
