AI Future Research Issue from Research Experience
Dong Hwa Kim
Hanbat National University, S.Korea
First, this lecture will provide research experience such as, IM (immune system), genetic algorithm, PSO (particle swarm optimization), BA (bacterial foraging), and its hybrid system and application to real system. In detailed description, this lecture describes research results about immune network based parameter estimation method for induction motor, PSO, BA, and Hybrid based optimal selection for PID controller through simulation and experiment in real system such as AVR and motor vector control system.
In the conventional genetic algorithm, it takes a long time to compute and could not include a variety of information of plant because of using sequential computing methods. That is some problem with making an artificial intelligence for optimization. In this lecture, by means of introducing selection algorithm of hybrid system into computing procedure, it will be showed advanced results. That is, it can be calculated simultaneously necessary information, transfer function, time constant, and etc., for plant operation condition. Therefore, computing time is about 30% shorter than that of the conventional genetic algorithm and 10.6% smaller in overshoot when it is applied to controller.
In this lecture we will show results of Rosenbrock function. All hybrid system have a faster computing speed than the previous one genetic or so.
The suggested method is applied to tuning of automatic controller for terminal voltage regulation of AVR (automatic Voltage Regulator) of thermal power plant and motor vector control system. Results in AVR reveal best response at 100 generations and results show 6.8331% error in GA, 5.3828% error (78.8%: reduced) in GA-PSO, in case of overshoot. In case of steady state error, results illustrate reduced error with 0.0028% error (16.4%: reduced) with 0.0171% in GA and 0.0143% in GA-PSO. In settling time, it represents 0.557(sec) in GA and 0.3989(sec) in GA-PSO and it reduce to 0.159(sec) (28.5%) by using GA-PSO. In the case of rise time, results shows 0.2037(sec) in GA and 0.2639(sec) in GA-PSO and tuning results are better than that of conventional method.
However, we have some questions why we have to study not introducing emotion function because emotion function can give an impact on decision making as they mentioned earlier. So, this lecture will mention how we can research for artificial intelligence and robot by using studied materials up to now. Especially, to get an idea for artificial intelligence, we strongly suggest that we had better investigate natural system such as BA, PSO, termites, bee, and so on. Of course, robots are becoming more and more ubiquitous in human environments as emerging technology for economic growth. Artificial intelligence will be decided by our ability to express effectively human’s mind such as intelligence and emotion. That is, emotion-inspired mechanisms will deal with importance for autonomous robots in a human environment, and also related works may be studied.
Herein, we are going to develop the corresponding fusion algorithms or models with learning algorithms including emotion function. Finally, presenter would like to have question; why are you going to research AI, Where are you going to get an idea?

Fundamental Enhancements of Particle Swarm Optimization in Asynhronous, Discrete, and Multi-Objective Optimization
Univerisyt of Malaysia in Pahang
Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) is a population based stochastic optimization algorithm, inspired by the social behavior of bird flocking and fish schooling. PSO has been introduced by Kennedy and Eberhart and contains a group of particles that move in a search space searching for an optimum solution according to a particular objective function. The movement of a particle is subjected to its own best found solution, pBest, and the best found solution in the neighborhood, gBest.
This lecture presents the latest fundamental enhancements of PSO in asynchronous update, discrete, and multi-objective problems.
Synchronous Asynchronous Particle Swarm Optimization
Particle swarm optimization (PSO) is one of the successful members of swarm intelligence family. The particles in PSO look for optimal solution by updating their velocity and position using two simple mathematical equations. Originally, the algorithm was introduced as a synchronous update algorithm (S-PSO), where the particles velocity and position are updated after the whole swarm performance is evaluated. Asynchronous update in PSO has been explored recently. A particle in asynchronous PSO (A-PSO) updates its velocity and position as soon after its own performance is evaluated. In this paper, we attempt to improve PSO by merging both synchronous and asynchronous update in the search process. The proposed algorithm, which is named as, Synchronous – Asynchronous PSO (SA-PSO), divides the particles into smaller groups. The best member of the group and the swarm’s best are chosen to lead the search. The members of the group are updated synchronously while the groups are asynchronously updated. Five well known unimodal functions and four multimodal functions are used here to study the performance of the proposed algorithm. The performance of the algorithm is compared with three existing PSO algorithms. The results show that the proposed algorithm is able to consistently produce good optimal solutions.
Multi-State Particle Swarm Optimization
The conventional binary particle swarm optimization (BPSO) algorithm is suffering from the problem of stagnation in local optimum and complexity. In updating current state to next state, the BPSO algorithm requires a high dimensional bit vector. Due to these challenging problems, in recent years, several attempts have been reported to improve BPSO algorithm. In this paper, a multi-state particle swarm optimization algorithm for solving discrete optimization problems is proposed. The proposed algorithm works based on a simplified mechanism of transition between two states. In order to avoid the repetitive states, a rule is embedded in the multi-state particle swarm optimization algorithm. In this paper, performance of multi-state particle swarm optimization with embedded rule (MSPSOER) is emperically compared to original and improved BPSO algorithms based on six sets of selected benchmarks instances of traveling salesman problem (TSP). The experimental results showed the effectiveness of the newly introduced approach, regarding its ability to consistently outperforms the binary-based algorithms in solving the discrete optimization problem.
Multi Non-Dominated Leaders Vector Evaluated Particle Swarm Optimization
The Vector Evaluated Particle Swarm Optimisation (VEPSO) algorithm has been widely used in solving multi-objective optimisation problems. In the VEPSO algorithm, particles of a swarm use the best solution found by their neighbourhood swarm to guide their movement. However, it has been found that the VEPSO mechanism is not capable of producing good solutions for multi-objective optimisation problems. Hence, non-dominated solutions and the concept of multi non-dominated leaders are incorporated to improve the VEPSO algorithm. The improved VEPSO is measured by the number of non-dominated solutions found, Generational Distance, Spread, and Hypervolume. This analysis shows that improved VEPSO signicantly improves upon the original VEPSO algorithm.
