[Abstract]
Recently, inspired from the collective behaviors of many swarm-based creatures in nature or social phenomena, swarm intelligence (SI) has been received attention and studied extensively, gradually becomes a class of efficiently intelligent optimization methods. Inspired by fireworks explosion at night, the fireworks algorithm (FWA) was developed in 2010. Since then, several improvements and some applications were proposed to improve the efficiency of FWA. In this talk, the fireworks algorithm is first described in detail and reviewed, then several effective improved fireworks algorithms are highlighted individually. By changing the ways of calculating numbers and amplitudes of sparks in fireworks’ explosion, the improved FWA algorithms become more reasonable and explainable. In addition, the multi-objective fireworks algorithm and the graphic processing unit (GPU) based FWA are also briefly presented, particularly the GPU-based FWA is able to speed up the optimization process considerably. Extensive experiments on IEEE-CEC’s benchmark functions demonstrate that the improved fireworks algorithms significantly increase the accuracy of found solutions, yet decrease the running time dramatically. Finally, some applications of FWA are briefly described, while its shortcomings and future research directions are identified.

Bridging gaps for Human-Human and Human-Machine:
A Perspective from Speech and Hearing Research

[Abstract]
Human society becomes more and more rich, colorful and convenient in the light of the rapid development of the science and technology. Still, we suffer from gaps either between human and human due to disabilities derived from diseases or aging, or between human and machine facing challenges from the complex and versatile real world. As it has been turned out, researches on speech and hearing, including perception mechanism, computational modeling, processing technologies as well as efficient algorithms etc., do bring significant improvements in either helping the rehabilitation of hearing impaired people, or promoting the more effective and convenient interfaces for intelligent systems. To bridging such gaps which are multidisciplinary and full of challenges, with the establishment of the speech and hearing research center at Peking University, interdisciplinary researches such as mechanisms of auditory perception and speech production, hearing aids and cochlear implant, auditory scene analysis and acoustic field reconstruction, speech recognition and synthesis, language understanding and dialogue management, learning techniques as well as embodied cognition based humanoids etc., are being carried out. Along with the discussions of the motivation, challenges and research architectures, recent research progresses will also be discussed in this talk. Although those gaps may not be completely eliminated in the near future, we believe they are on the way of gradually shrinking.

Temporal Perceptual Grouping and Transfer in a Multisensory Context

[Abstract]
Multisensory processing within seconds is pivotal for many perceptual and cognitive tasks. Here we adopted the research paradigms of temporal ventriloquism, priming and illusory (auditory) gap transfer to address the guiding principles of intra-modal and cross-modal temporal perceptual grouping. We used methods of psychophysics, fMRI and MEG to investigate the (ensemble) coding of temporal events and the underpinning neural signatures. The accumulated evidence has also shown that our brain takes a centralized temporal representation and the benefits of temporal training of events in one sensory modality could be quickly transferred to another modality.
Keywords: Temporal; Perceptual grouping; Ternus display; psychophysics; MEG; fMRI

[Abstract]
Subspace recovery based feature learning methods is a kind of feature learning method which is proposed recently. This kinds of methods aim at characterizing the relationship between data samples and then learning more discriminative feature by recovering the inherent subspace structure of data. Actually, this kinds of methods have been successfully applied to machine learning and computer vision problems, such as face recognition, object classification, background modeling, and visual saliency. In this talk I will describe recent research in our lab on subspace recovery based feature learning that attempts to combines feature learning with classification, so that the regulated classification error is minimized. In this way, the extracted features are more discriminative for the recognition tasks.
