Main Research Interests
- Artificial intelligence and evolutionary
- genetic and
evolutionary algorithms, representation and operators
- symbolic machine
learning and fuzzy decision trees
- constraints in
genetic algorithms and in genetic programming
Selected Research Involvements
- Music Identification. The startup folded
after a few years. I developed music recognition and retrieval system
based on 5-sec samples.
- Statistical Methods for Recursively
Partitioned Trees, Co-PI, supported by NIH. The objective was to improve
decision trees based on local search.
- Fuzzy Decision Trees,
supported by NSF. I bootstrapped the field.
- Constrained Genetic Programming , in collaboration with NASA/JSC,
partly funded by NASA/JSC and UMRB. This
tutorial was presented at GP98.
is my GP-related publications.
- Chair of FEA97 and FEA98, International
Workshop on Frontiers in Evolutionary Algorithms, held with the Joint Conference on Information
- Optimization of the Air Mobility Command
(AMC) fleet, as a part of the Business Decision Model (ABDM), under Seidcon and Unisys.
Selected Other Professional Involvements
- Served as a witness expert on
software-related court cases
- Served as a grant reviewer and panelist
to agencies such as NRC, NSF, etc.
- Delivered the following corporate training
to various corporate clients in TX, CA, MO, IL, and CT:
Analysis/Design, Project Management, Development
