In our rapidly advancing digital age, we continuously generate a staggering amount of data spanning across various sectors such as healthcare, finance, marketing, education, and government. The advent of big data has yielded both opportunities and challenges, positioning data mining at the core of deriving valuable insights and facilitating data-driven decisions. With its intricate algorithms, data mining has the capability of revealing essential patterns, associations, and knowledge hidden within large and complex datasets. Nevertheless, these extracted insights often necessitate sophisticated computational intelligence techniques to interpret and understand. Techniques like artificial neural systems, swarm intelligence, and evolutionary programming, among others, have become vital in deciphering the knowledge unveiled by data mining and optimizing its algorithms for efficiency and accuracy. Moreover, in our interconnected world, data security holds paramount importance. Data mining, which often involves accessing and analyzing sensitive information, presents numerous challenges relating to information security, such as data privacy, cryptography, secure data sharing, and system integrity. The development of robust solutions to tackle these issues is an ongoing endeavor in the realm of data mining.


The proposed special issue aims to shed light on recent developments and findings in these closely related domains. By offering a platform for expert researchers, scholars, and practitioners from computational intelligence, information security, and data mining to share their latest findings, we hope to encourage cross-disciplinary dialogue and stimulate innovative approaches. Through this convergence of expertise, we aim to expedite the development of more secure, efficient, and intelligent data mining systems, thus contributing to the progression of this critical field. Essentially, the proposed special issue strives to depict not only the state-of-the-art in data mining, computational intelligence, and information security, but also to chart the trajectory for future research directions and applications.

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.045794
    (This article belongs to this Special Issue: Advanced Data Mining Techniques: Security, Intelligent Systems and Applications)
    Abstract While emerging technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) have many benefits, they also pose considerable security challenges that require innovative solutions, including those based on artificial intelligence (AI), given that these techniques are increasingly being used by malicious actors to compromise IoT systems. Although an ample body of research focusing on conventional AI methods exists, there is a paucity of studies related to advanced statistical and optimization approaches aimed at enhancing security measures. To contribute to this nascent research stream, a novel AI-driven security system denoted as “AI2AI” is presented in this work. AI2AI employs AI techniques to… More >

    Multi-Objective Equilibrium Optimizer for Feature Selection in High-Dimensional English Speech Emotion Recognition

    Liya Yue, Pei Hu, Shu-Chuan Chu, Jeng-Shyang Pan
    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.046962
    (This article belongs to this Special Issue: Advanced Data Mining Techniques: Security, Intelligent Systems and Applications)
    Abstract Speech emotion recognition (SER) uses acoustic analysis to find features for emotion recognition and examines variations in voice that are caused by emotions. The number of features acquired with acoustic analysis is extremely high, so we introduce a hybrid filter-wrapper feature selection algorithm based on an improved equilibrium optimizer for constructing an emotion recognition system. The proposed algorithm implements multi-objective emotion recognition with the minimum number of selected features and maximum accuracy. First, we use the information gain and Fisher Score to sort the features extracted from signals. Then, we employ a multi-objective ranking method to evaluate these features and… More >

    Abstract The process control-oriented threat, which can exploit OT (Operational Technology) vulnerabilities to forcibly insert abnormal control commands or status information, has become one of the most devastating cyber attacks in industrial automation control. To effectively detect this threat, this paper proposes one functional pattern-related anomaly detection approach, which skillfully collaborates the BinSeg (Binary Segmentation) algorithm with FSM (Finite State Machine) to identify anomalies between measuring data and control data. By detecting the change points of measuring data, the BinSeg algorithm is introduced to generate some initial sequence segments, which can be further classified and merged into different functional patterns due… More >
