Special Session on

Integration of Swarm Intelligence and Artificial Neural Networks
The 4th Indian International Conference on Artificial Intelligence

December 16-18, 2009, Tumkur (near Bangalore), India

Description and Scope of the Session:
In past few years a significant research has been done on training Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) with swarm intelligence (SI) techniques rather than the standard technique of back-propagation, evolving the topology of neural networks and so on. However, there is still a large gap between the researchers of swarm intelligence and artificial neural network exists. Hence, to bridge the gap between these two disciplines of knowledge an integration of swarm intelligence and artificial neural network is required. As a result this will provide a new forum for dissemination of knowledge in both theoretical and applied research on swarm intelligence and artificial neural network. This forum accelerates interaction between the above two bodies of knowledge, and fosters a unified development in the next generation computational model for machine learning.
