27 October 2007 - KEDRI’s PhD student among top ten in international competition

KEDRI’s PhD student, Peter Hwang, among the first ten in an international Artificial Neural Networks & Computational Intelligence Forecasting Competition

Peter Hwang, a second year PhD student at KEDRI, working on Intelligent Modelling and Prediction Systems was ranked amongst the first ten in a world competition in time series prediction. The closely contested competition (www.neural-forecasting-competition.com) was held at the IJCNN07 conference in Orlando and organised by the International Neural Network Society (www.inns.org).

There were 11 time series of unknown origin given for the competition and about 100 submissions were sent to a jury. Participants had to predict time steps ahead in each time series. Peter applied a model which is called Dynamic Evolving Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System developed and published by Dr. Qun Song and Prof. Nikola Kasabov who are both Peter’s supervisors. Prof. Kasabov commented on Peter’s achievement as a very good mark in his PhD study and he expects new algorithms to be developed by Peter in the future, for successful time series prediction, data mining and knowledge discovery.
