Best paper award at IEEE CIBCB 2022

Our manuscript “Predicting and Characterizing Legal Claims of Hospitals with Computational Intelligence: the Legal and Ethical Implications” was awarded as best paper at the 2022 IEEE Conference on Computational Intelligence in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (IEEE CIBCB). The manuscript investigates the NHS data to determine under which circumstances the COVID pandemics caused an increment of …

Two new journal papers

Recently, we got two papers accepted for pubblication. The first one was the followup of our CIBCB 2019 paper, published on IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics. The paper describes the last developments of our ProCell tool for cell proliferation analysis, whose GUI was completely overhauled by designer Luca Zanini and whose simulation core …

New (feature) paper published on Entropy

How to smooth out the fitness landscapes by means of Fourier transforms?

FST-PSO release 1.6.0

Fuzzy Self-Tuning PSO was upgrade to version 1.6.0. The source code can be downloaded from GITHUB, and the python package can be easily installed using pip. This is the first release officially supporting Python 3. I managed to solve some pending issues with the packaging system, and I fixed miniful’s support (even though I am …

Best Paper Award at IEEE CIBCB’19

In early July, I presented our joint research with the European Institute of Oncology (IEO) at the 2019 IEEE Conference on Computational Intelligence in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (CIBCB 2019). The paper, titled “ProCell: Investigating cell proliferation with Swarm Intelligence”, focuses on the investigation of AML blasts by means of ProCell, the stochastic modeling and …

Benchmark functions vs parameter estimation: new paper accepted on Applied Soft Computing

For some real world problems, common algorithms can outperform the most advanced meta-heuristics.

New paper accepted at IEEE CIBCB 2019

Today our paper “ProCell: Investigating cell proliferation with Swarm Intelligence” was accepted for the forthcoming IEEE Conference on Computational Intelligence for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (CIBCB 2019) at Certosa di Pontignano (Siena, Italy). The paper, written in cooperation with the European Institute of Oncology, proposes an extended analysis of our tool ProCell, along with its …

New publication: COST action ‘cHiPSet’ book chapter

A book chapter about the Case Study “Towards Human Cell Simulation” lead by me was published today.

New paper published

A new paper of my group was published today on Lecture Notes on Computer Science. It is a conference paper that we presented at the 2017 International Meeting on Computational Intelligence Methods for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics. The paper, titled “Estimation of Kinetic Reaction Constants: Exploiting Reboot Strategies to Improve PSO’s Performance”, investigates the impact of …
