The book entitled "Advancements in Smart City and Intelligent Building" is the Proceedings of the International Conference on Smart City and Intelligent Building (ICSCIB 2018) held in Hefei, China, September 15-16, 2018. It contains 58 papers in total categorized into 8 different tracks, on Building Energy Efficiency, Construction Robot and Automation, Intelligent Community and Urban Safety, Intelligentialization of Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning System, Information Technology and Intelligent Transportation Systems, New Generation Intelligent Building Platform Techniques, Smart Home and Utility, and Smart Underground Space, which cover a wide range areas of smart cities and intelligent buildings.
ICSCIB2018 provided an international forum for professionals, academics, and researchers to present the latest developments from interdisciplinary theoretical studies, computational algorithm developments and engineering applications in smart cities and smart buildings. This academic event featured many opportunities to network with colleagues from around the world in a wonderful environment. Its program covered invitation and presentations from scientists, researchers, and practitioners who have been working in the related areas to establish platforms for collaborative research projects in these fields. The conference invited leaders from industry and academia to exchange and share their experiences, present research results, explore collaborations and to spark new ideas, with the aim of developing new projects and exploiting new technology in these fields, and bridge theoretical studies and emerging applications in various science and engineering branches.
This book addresses the recent development and achievement in the field of smart city and intelligent building. It is primarily intended for researchers and students for undergraduate and postgraduate programs in the background of multiple disciplines including computer science, information systems, information technology, automatic control and automation, electrical and electronic engineering, and telecommunications who wish to develop and share their ideas, knowledge and new findings in smart city and intelligent building.
This book brings together twelve scholars six Americans and six Chinese to explore the ways America and China think about international order. The book shows how each country's traditions, historical experiences, and ideologies influence current global dialogues.
This book provides in-depth analysis and guidance in the clinical diagnosis and treatment, and development of new treatments with clinical applied prospect of burn and trauma associated lung injury. It includes study on the pathological change of burn and trauma associated lung injury such as inhalation injury, lung blast injury, pulmonary barotrauma, delayed hemopneumothorax, lung injury associated sepsis, ventilator-induced lung injury and ischemia-reperfusion lung injury. It is also compiled with many clinical typical cases, full data and series of pictures.It also aims at bringing more clinicians' attention to burn-/trauma-induced lung injury, making them familiar with the relevant theories and clinical diagnose; guiding the treatment of burn and trauma associated lung injury and improving the prognosis and life quality of patients; stimulating more clinicians and researchers to further explore the pathological mechanism and new treatments of burn and trauma associated lung injury. It persists in combining theory and practice, and highlights practical application to reflect the theoretical value. It is very suitable for the medical teaching and can also be used as a reference book for medical doctoral students, postgraduates, and medical trainees receiving continuing education from critical care medicine, burn & trauma surgery, and emergency medicine.
This book provides readers the recent algorithmic advances towards realizing the notion of optinformatics in evolutionary learning and optimization. The book also provides readers a variety of practical applications, including inter-domain learning in vehicle route planning, data-driven techniques for feature engineering in automated machine learning, as well as evolutionary transfer reinforcement learning. Through reading this book, the readers will understand the concept of optinformatics, recent research progresses in this direction, as well as particular algorithm designs and application of optinformatics.
Evolutionary algorithms (EAs) are adaptive search approaches that take inspiration from the principles of natural selection and genetics. Due to their efficacy of global search and ease of usage, EAs have been widely deployed to address complex optimization problems occurring in a plethora of real-world domains, including image processing, automation of machine learning, neural architecture search, urban logistics planning, etc. Despite the success enjoyed by EAs, it is worth noting that most existing EA optimizers conduct the evolutionary search process from scratch, ignoring the data that may have been accumulated from different problems solved in the past. However, today, it is well established that real-world problems seldom exist in isolation, such that harnessing the available data from related problems could yield useful information for more efficient problem-solving. Therefore, in recent years, there is an increasing research trend in conducting knowledge learning and data processing along the course of an optimization process, with the goal of achieving accelerated search in conjunction with better solution quality. To this end, the term optinformatics has been coined in the literature as the incorporation of information processing and data mining (i.e., informatics) techniques into the optimization process.
The primary market of this book is researchers from both academia and industry, who are working on computational intelligence methods and their applications. This book is also written to be used as a textbook for a postgraduate course in computational intelligence emphasizing methodologies at the intersection of optimization and machine learning.
