We have performed an extensive research focused on Evolutionary Computation and Artificial Neural Networks. We develop applications and algoritms for optimization, multi-objective optimization, machine learning, classification and clustering, and search metaheuristics. Several open problems and different aspects of the Evolutionary Computation and Machine Learning fields have been studied.

Research lines include:

  • Obtaining a system of rules from the output produced by a genetic classifier
  • How to deal with problems of time series prediction and optimization for real applications
  • How to improve the performance and generalization of machine learning techniques
  • Developing methods in the context of interactive evolutionary computation
  • The use of evolutionary computation techniques in cryptographic systems
  • How to predict the initial public offering price in the stock market
  • Developing methods for probabilistic prediction of continuous values
  • The use of machine learning and evolutionary computation to improve point and probabilistic energy forecasting (solar and wind)
