Talk description

The main aim of this talk is to deliver a either definite or compact knowledge on how hybridization can help improving the quality of computer classification systems. The talk is based on his recently published book on Hybrid classifiers: Method of Data, Knowledge, and Data Hybridization, Springer, 2014. In order to make readers clearly realize the knowledge of hybridization, this book primarily focuses on introducing the different levels of hybridization and illuminating what problems we will face with as dealing with such projects. In the first instance the data and knowledge incorporated in hybridization were the action points, and then a still growing up area of classifier systems known as combined classifiers was considered.
