Michael Affenzeller, Stefan Wagner, Stephan Winkler, Andreas Beham
April 16, 2018

Genetic Algorithms and Genetic Programming: Modern Concepts and Practical Applications discusses algorithmic developments in the context of genetic algorithms (GAs) and genetic programming (GP). It applies the algorithms to significant combinatorial optimization problems and describes structure...

Feature Engineering for Machine Learning and Data Analytics

Guozhu Dong, Huan Liu
April 04, 2018

Feature engineering plays a vital role in big data analytics. Machine learning and data mining algorithms cannot work without data. Little can be achieved if there are few features to represent the underlying data objects, and the quality of results of those algorithms largely depends on the...
