Distinguished Lecture Series 2017/18 – Prof. Yaochu Jin

Prof. Yaochu Jin from University of Surrey, United Kingdom visited the Department and delivered a Distinguished Lecture on “Data-driven Evolutionary Optimization – Integrating Evolutionary Computation, Machine Learning and Data Sciences” on 24 May 2018. In the lecture, Prof. Jin presented recent advances in data-driven optimization that systematically integrate advanced machine learning techniques including active learning, semi-supervised learning and transfer learning, with evolutionary algorithms. The lecture was full of constructive interaction and well received.

Prof. Jin received the B.Sc., M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees from Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China, in 1988, 1991, and 1996, respectively, and the Dr.-Ing. degree from Ruhr University Bochum, Germany, in 2001.

He is a Professor in Computational Intelligence, Department of Computer Science, University of Surrey, Guildford, U.K., where he heads the Nature Inspired Computing and Engineering Group. His main research interests include evolutionary optimization, machine learning, and evolutionary developmental systems. He has (co)authored over 250 peer-reviewed journal and conference papers and been granted eight patents on evolutionary optimization. He has delivered 30 invited keynote speeches at international conferences.

Prof. Jin is the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON COGNITIVE AND DEVELOPMENTAL SYSTEMS and Co-Editor-in-Chief of Complex & Intelligent Systems. He is an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer (2013-2015 and 2017-2019) and past Vice President for Technical Activities of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (2014-2015). He is the recipient of the 2018 IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation Outstanding Paper Award, the 2015 and 2017 IEEE Computational Intelligence Magazine Outstanding Paper Award. He is a Fellow of IEEE.
