Meeting Abstract

Technology Outlook


The bleeding edge technology and some applications will be discussed in this talk. With explosive growth of the Internet, Web users suffer from irrelevant Web search results, non-personalized Web information, fraud e-Business transactions, and even wrong Web based decisions. Therefore, a significant need exists for a new generation of techniques with the ability to intelligently and automatically assist users in finding useful Web information and Web knowledge and making smart Web decisions. Such important technology is the subject of the emerging hybrid field of intelligent technology and Web technology. Because intelligent Web techniques are useful for e-Business applications, intelligent Web systems have received a great deal of attention among large corporations, industrial research labs and universities recently. Thus it is necessary and urgent to develop new intelligent Web techniques for Web-based applications on the wired and wireless networks.


Yan-Qing Zhang received a Ph.D. degree in computer science and engineering at the University of South Florida, Tampa, in 1997. He is currently an Assistant Professor of the Computer Science Department at Georgia State University, Atlanta. His research interests include computational intelligence, neural networks, fuzzy logic, evolutionary computation, knowledge discovery and data mining, computational Web intelligence, mobile wireless intelligent agents, and digital library. He has published two book chapters and over 70 research papersin journals and conferences. He is also the co-author of a book "Compensatory Genetic Fuzzy Neural Networks and Their Applications" published in 1998. Dr. Zhang is a member of IEEE, ACM and the Young Researchers Committee of World Federation on Soft Computing.
