Cutting Edge of Reinforcement Learning and its Hybrid Methods
Keiki Takadama and Kazuteru Miyazaki

Machine learning has been attracting significant attention again since the potential of deep learning was recognized. Not only has machine learning been improved, but it has also been integrated with “reinforcement learning,” revealing other potential applications, e.g., deep Q-networks (DQN) and AlphaGO proposed by Google DeepMind. It is against this background that this special issue, “Cutting Edge of Reinforcement Learning and its Hybrid Methods,” focuses on both reinforcement learning and its hybrid methods, including reinforcement learning with deep learning or evolutionary computation, to explore new potentials of reinforcement learning.

Of the many contributions received, we finally selected 13 works for publication. The first three propose hybrids of deep learning and reinforcement learning for single agent environments, which include the latest research results in the areas of convolutional neural networks and DQN. The fourth through seventh works are related to the Learning Classifier System, which integrates evolutionary computation and reinforcement learning to develop the rule discovery mechanism. The eighth and ninth works address problems related to goal design or the reward, an issue that is particularly important to the application of reinforcement learning. The last four contributions deal with multiagent environments.

These works cover a wide range of studies, from the expansion of techniques incorporating simultaneous learning to applications in multiagent environments. All works are on the cutting edge of reinforcement learning and its hybrid methods. We hope that this special issue constitutes a large contribution to the development of the reinforcement learning field.

Forum for Interdisciplinary Mathematics 2013
Hiroshi Sakai, Hiroaki Ishii, and Junzo Watada

This special issue focuses on recent research in interdisciplinary mathematics and mathematical sciences. For the last four decades, the Forum for Interdisciplinary Mathematics (FIM), a society for researchers in mathematical sciences, has focused on mathematics, combinatorics, statistics, operations research, computer science, fuzzy sets, rough sets, bioinformatics, etc.

The 22nd International Conference of FIM on Interdisciplinary Mathematics, Statistics and Computational Techniques (IMSCT 2013-FIM XXII) was held in Kitakyushu, Japan, on November 10-12, 2013. This conference was organized by the International Society of Management (ISME international), the Graduate School of Information, Production and Systems, Waseda University, in conjunction with FIM. IMSCT 2013-FIM XXII was attended by faculty members, researchers, specialists, and graduate students from around the world.

The 50 papers presented included keynote speeches by Professor Bhu Dev Sharma, Professor Milan Vlach, and Professor Tomonari Suzuki, together with five plenary talks. To promote FIMfs activities, guest editors had also planned to invite public participation in this special issue accepting nine papers, four selected papers from the conference and five papers closely related to this special issue. Each paper underwent strict peer reviews.

The first paper, Crisp and Fuzzy Granular Hierarchical Structures Generated from a Free Monoid, by Tetsuya Murai, Sadaaki Miyamoto, Masahiro Inuiguchi, Yasuo Kudo, and Seiki Akama, proposes a granular hierarchy, and characterizes the mathematical structure based on fuzzy multisets, fuzzy sets, and rough multisets. This granular hierarchy includes Yagerfs fuzzy multisets and Zadehfs fuzzy sets, offering a general framework.

The second paper, Variable Neighborhood Model for Agent Control Introducing Accessibility Relations Between Agents with Linear Temporal Logic, by Seiki Ubukata, Tetsuya Murai, Yasuo Kudo, and Seiki Akama, discusses a variable neighborhood model based on a Kripke framework, and applies this model to introducing the agentfs personal space.

Cognitive infocommunications (CogInfoCom) investigates connections between the cognitive sciences and different areas of infocommunications. CogInfoCom also focuses on engineering application fields integrating related scientific areas and results.

Cognitive infocommunications systems involve hardware and software components that collect and store information and enable users to interact with this information. Besides communication security, considerations include the amount of stored information, which may be huge. This means that there is a need for algorithms and solutions that store and process data effectively. The CogInfoCom field presents a number of motivational challenges requiring active deep research, implementation, integration and measurement.

This special issue focuses on the Cognitive Mobile Applications and Services track of the 3rd IEEE International Conference on Cognitive Infocommunications (CogInfoComf12). Mobile phones and tablets are now everyday tools that enable users to easily connect to the Internet, download social content, find interesting places, etc. Mobile technology has become one of the most important fields in the IT industry just as Web technology was 10-15 years ago. Mobile phones and tablets use sensors and interfaces like accelerometers, cameras, GPS, and thermometers that monitor and enable easier interaction with the real world. Agents hosted by mobile devices that learn from sensor-originated information also support individual applications and complex systems.

This special issue focuses on the cognitive capabilities of mobile phones, the various agents that mobile devices host, and how they can be applied efficiently in applications and services including social aspects of mobile solutions. Papers from the conference cover mobile controlled environments, mobile-supported learning, augmented reality, energy efficiency and communication techniques.

We thank the authors for submitting their papers to CogInfoCom as a venue for presenting their findings. We are also grateful to program committee members and reviewers for their efforts in making the co...<more>

A brief review of Part IIfs 5 papers follows.

The first paper proposes a new visualization technique involving non-Euclidean relational data using robust linear fuzzy clustering based on an FCMdd framework. Experimental results show that the proposed model achieves multiclass MDS and is useful for revealing complex features. The second paper proposes the detection of lower-extremity arterial regions imaged by non-enhanced MR based on particle filter algorithms. Results applied to fresh blood imaging (FBI) show that the technique is promising. The third paper presents the development of nutritional management system supporting healthy eating habits. The paper reveals new concepts in nutritional management and confirms the effectiveness of the proposed management system through numerical experiments. The fourth paper proposes an emotion generation model with growth functions for robots based on a genetic psychology concept. The technique is promising for realizing evolving emotions in robots. The fifth paper presents the fuzzy control in approaching target objects and object grabbing by a fourwheeled vision-based mobile robot. The paper presents significant developments in mobile robots from the viewpoint of industrial applications.

We thank the authors and reviewers for their great efforts in making this publication possible. We are also grateful to the JACIII editorial office for its invaluable assistance and advice in putting this issue together.

Advances in Fuzzy Inference and its Related Techniques
Kiyohiko Uehara

Fuzzy inference provides a way to describe system behavior using humanly understandable rules. Based on this advantage, fuzzy inference has been applied in a wide variety of fields, including control, prediction, and pattern recognition. It has also had a corresponding impact on industrial applications.

The four articles included in this special issue cover the advances made in fuzzy inference and related techniques. The first paper proposes a method for fuzzy rule interpolation on the basis of the generalized mean. This method makes it possible to perform nonlinear mapping of convex fuzzy sets even with sparse fuzzy rules. The second paper proposes a fuzzy clustering algorithm, landmark fuzzy neighborhood DBSCAN (landmark FN-DBSCAN). This algorithm is quite efficient in the clustering of large data sets, particularly compared to conventional density-based algorithms. Fuzzy clustering can be used to construct fuzzy rule bases. The third paper applies fuzzy inference to ultrasonic human brain imaging based on YURAGI synthesis. In this method, the thickness of bones is calculated effectively from synthesized waves using fuzzy inference. The fourth paper applies adaptive neurofuzzy inference systems (ANFIS) to financial institution failure prediction. These systems function effectively in the handling of the finance data of Thai firms with high nonlinearity.

As a guest editor, I really appreciate the efforts of the contributors and reviewers. I am very grateful to staffs in JACIII editorial office for their kind support.

Smart Grid
Ken Nagasaka

Recently many utilities, manufacturers, researchers, government leaders around the world are working on a very sophisticated issue, Smart Grid, to modernize both the electric power transmission and distribution grids for the future.

As a suitable subject for special issue for the Journal of Advanced Computational Intelligence and Intelligent Informatics (JACIII), I found that Smart Grid with its impacts on many fields is a timely subject though related to the fundamental concept of this Journal on Intelligence and real-world applications and so forth. Smart grids are intelligent and self-healing power systems which integrate intelligent transmission network with IT and collect, distribute, and process information about the behavior of all power suppliers and consumers in order to improve reliability, power quality, and to reduce electricity costs. Using a key issue, smart meter, enables smart grids to have smart real time monitoring on a regional and national scale to control and management the grids to avoid or mitigate the system-wide blackouts. In this special issue, we hope to explore breakthrough and new contributions useful to achieve the goal of smart grid.

Three papers were selected for this special issue: The first paper proposes a novel idea though a strategic system in energy and environment required in smart grid. Managing sources combination including solar energy as well as the production trading is a new kind of risk management in smart grid. Important extensions of this study includes emissions management program accommodating uncertain and erratic renewable energy sources such as solar and wind energies. The second paper is related to communication aspect required for smart grid technology when renewable energy in small smart communities is interconnected to the smart grid. The simulation model developed in this paper is believed to be a useful tool in real-time power management system in smart grid. Third paper is selected as another hot subject in smart grids; the authors developed an extended procedure that obtains a unit commitment including a significant wind power penetration and P...<more>

The 12th International Symposium on Advanced Intelligent Systems (ISIS 2011) held at La Vie DfOr Resort, Suwon, Korea, on September 28 to October 1, 2011, featured presentations by researchers, engineers and practitioners on the latest accomplishments, innovations and applications in artificial intelligence, intelligent systems, and information technology. The 152 papers consisted of 110 regular papers, 39 organized session papers and 3 invited papers were contributed to the conference. The Program Committee requested ISIS 2011 reviewers to select papers for a special issue of the Journal of Advanced Computational Intelligence & Intelligent Informatics (JACIII), of which about 10 were accepted for publication in a twopart ISIS 2011 special issue, Vol.16, No.7, containing 5 papers. Part II will feature about 5 papers.

A brief review of Part I covers 5 papers:

First paper proposes a quantitative model for assessing the collision risk in maritime waterway traffic. The method proposes recent maritime traffic characteristics in time-variant CPA waterway environments and models a dynamic causation factor as a risk indicator. Second paper proposes multiagent query refinement realizing personalized query refinement by three strategies ? knowledge-based query expansion, user-device-based query and weighted query expansion strategy. These approaches determine the domain that the initial query belongs to and expand the query by comprehensively considering user interests. Third paper presents variable-step-size incremental conductance direct maximum power point tracking using fuzzy membership for a standalone photovoltaic system under rapidly changing irradiation. Fourth paper applies a natural actor-critic (NAC) and natural evolution strategies (NES) from natural-gradient-based machine learning to path-tracking control problems for autonomous vehicles. Fifth paper presents features for authenticating painting style, specifically that of Piet Mondrain. It demonstrates meaningful features using two supervised learning algorithms ? decision tree induction algorithm C4.5 and the feature generating machine (FGM) ? sele...<more>

Professor Ebrahim Mamdani Memorial Issue
Yoshinori Arai and Toshihiko Watanabe

On February 22, 2010, Prof. Ebrahim H. Mamdani who devised Mamdani fuzzy inference has passed away. His work in fuzzy inference, which rapidly paved the way to its practical use, helped disseminate Prof. Lotfi Zadeh's fuzzy logic and the development of fuzzy research.

Prof. Mamdani's two papers on fuzzy inference – “Application of fuzzy algorithms for control of simple dynamic plant” (Proc. IEE, Vol.121, No. 12, pp. 1585-1588, 1974) and “An experiment in linguistic synthesis with a fuzzy logic controller” (Int. J. of Man-Machine Studies, Vol.7, No.1, pp. 1-13, 1975) with S. Assilian – enabled fuzzy inference technology to develop dramatically both indicatively and indirectly to where it has been applied, including fuzzy control systems.

This special issue honors Prof. Mamdani for his invaluable efforts in these and many other fields. We have asked for submissions by researchers influenced by Prof. Mamdani's achievements, including his work in fuzzy inference, and have narrowed down to one review and seven full papers. The review by Hirosato Seki and Kai Meng Tay provides an incisive overview on the many aspects of fuzzy inference that Prof. Mamdani brought to light.

Prof. Mamdani's fuzzy inference has become a deterministic technology that can be chosen naturally and that will continue to be influential and survivable well into the future.
