    A Reference Vector-Assisted Many-Objective Optimization Algorithm with Adaptive Niche Dominance Relation

    Fangzhen Ge, Yating Wu, Debao Chen, Longfeng Shen
    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.39, No.2, pp. 189-211, 2024, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2024.042841

    Abstract It is still a huge challenge for traditional Pareto-dominated many-objective optimization algorithms to solve many-objective optimization problems because these algorithms hardly maintain the balance between convergence and diversity and can only find a group of solutions focused on a small area on the Pareto front, resulting in poor performance of those algorithms. For this reason, we propose a reference vector-assisted algorithm with an adaptive niche dominance relation, for short MaOEA-AR. The new dominance relation forms a niche based on the angle between candidate solutions. By comparing these solutions, the solution with the best convergence is More >

    Abstract This study proposed a new real-time manufacturing process monitoring method to monitor and detect process shifts in manufacturing operations. Since real-time production process monitoring is critical in today’s smart manufacturing. The more robust the monitoring model, the more reliable a process is to be under control. In the past, many researchers have developed real-time monitoring methods to detect process shifts early. However, these methods have limitations in detecting process shifts as quickly as possible and handling various data volumes and varieties. In this paper, a robust monitoring model combining Gated Recurrent Unit (GRU) and Random… More >

    Deep Neural Network Architecture Search via Decomposition-Based Multi-Objective Stochastic Fractal Search

    Hongshang Xu, Bei Dong, Xiaochang Liu, Xiaojun Wu

    Abstract Deep neural networks often outperform classical machine learning algorithms in solving real-world problems. However, designing better networks usually requires domain expertise and consumes significant time and computing resources. Moreover, when the task changes, the original network architecture becomes outdated and requires redesigning. Thus, Neural Architecture Search (NAS) has gained attention as an effective approach to automatically generate optimal network architectures. Most NAS methods mainly focus on achieving high performance while ignoring architectural complexity. A myriad of research has revealed that network performance and structural complexity are often positively correlated. Nevertheless, complex network structures will bring… More >

    Abstract With the improvement of image editing technology, the threshold of image tampering technology decreases, which leads to a decrease in the authenticity of image content. This has also driven research on image forgery detection techniques. In this paper, a U-Net with multiple sensory field feature extraction (MSCU-Net) for image forgery detection is proposed. The proposed MSCU-Net is an end-to-end image essential attribute segmentation network that can perform image forgery detection without any pre-processing or post-processing. MSCU-Net replaces the single-scale convolution module in the original network with an improved multiple perceptual field convolution module so that More >

    Abstract Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are widely used for various practical applications due to their simplicity and versatility. The quality of service in WSNs is greatly influenced by the coverage, which directly affects the monitoring capacity of the target region. However, low WSN coverage and uneven distribution of nodes in random deployments pose significant challenges. This study proposes an optimal node planning strategy for network coverage based on an adjusted single candidate optimizer (ASCO) to address these issues. The single candidate optimizer (SCO) is a metaheuristic algorithm with stable implementation procedures. However, it has limitations in More >

    Abstract Numerous clothing enterprises in the market have a relatively low efficiency of assembly line planning due to insufficient optimization of bottleneck stations. As a result, the production efficiency of the enterprise is not high, and the production organization is not up to expectations. Aiming at the problem of flexible process route planning in garment workshops, a multi-object genetic algorithm is proposed to solve the assembly line balance optimization problem and minimize the machine adjustment path. The encoding method adopts the object-oriented path representation method, and the initial population is generated by random topology sorting based… More >

    Abstract The loss of three-dimensional atmospheric electric field (3DAEF) data has a negative impact on thunderstorm detection. This paper proposes a method for thunderstorm point charge path recovery. Based on the relationship between a point charge and 3DAEF, we derive corresponding localization formulae by establishing a point charge localization model. Generally, point charge movement paths are obtained after fitting time series localization results. However, AEF data losses make it difficult to fit and visualize paths. Therefore, using available AEF data without loss as input, we design a hybrid model combining the convolutional neural network (CNN) and… More >
