Swarm intelligence: principles, advances, and applications
Hassanien A., Alamry E.,  CRC Press, Inc., Boca Raton, FL, 2015. 228 pp. Type: Book (978-1-498741-06-4)

Biological models have inspired algorithm designers at least since 1954, with Barricelli’s simulations of evolution [1]. His motive as a biologist was the study of evolution, but engineers realized that many practical problems could be addre...

Semi-supervised hybrid clustering by integrating Gaussian mixture model and distance metric learning
Zhang Y., Wen J., Wang X., Jiang Z.  Journal of Intelligent Information Systems 45(1): 113-130, 2015. Type: Article

Zhang et al. propose a semi-supervised clustering algorithm, called SSCGD, addressing a specific class of such techniques: probabilistic clustering. The algorithm optimizes a given Gaussian mixture model (GMM) by adding, on the one hand, more prob...
