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