Xin Yao's Research Interests: Hybrid Evolutionary and Nearest Neighbour Classifiers

Evolutionary computation techniques can be combined with many other learning techniques. Such combinations often lead to a hybrid system that outperforms previous ones. The combination between evolutionary algorithms and nearest neighbour classifiers is one such exampe.
