Title: Automated composition, optimisation and adaptation of complex predictive systems
There has been a lot of work done on the subject of intelligent data analysis, data mining and predictive modelling over the last 50 years with notable improvements which have been possible with both the advancements of the computing equipment as well as with the improvement of the algorithms. However, even in the case of the static, non-changing over time data there are still many hard challenges to be solved which are related to the massive amounts, high dimensionality, sparseness or inhomogeneous nature of the data to name just a few. What is also very challenging in today’s applications is the non-stationarity of the data which often change very quickly posing a set of new problems related to the need for robust adaptation and learning over time. In scenarios like these, many of the existing, often very powerful, methods are completely inadequate as they are simply not adaptive and require a lot of maintenance attention from highly skilled experts, in turn reducing their areas of applicability.
In order to address these challenging issues and following various inspirations coming from biology coupled with current engineering practices, we proposed a major departure from the standard ways of building adaptive, intelligent predictive systems by utilising the biological metaphors of redundant but complementary pathways, interconnected cyclic processes, models that can be created as well as destroyed in easy way, batteries of sensors in form of pools of complementary approaches, hierarchical organisation of constantly optimised and adaptable components. In order to achieve such high level of adaptability we have proposed novel flexible architectures which encapsulate many of the principles and strategies observed in adaptable biological systems. The proposed approaches have been extensively and very successfully tested by winning a number of predictive modelling competitions and applying to a number of challenging real world problems including pollution/toxicity prediction studies, building adaptable soft sensors in process industry in collaboration with Evonik Industries or forecasting demand for airline tickets covering the results of one of our collaborative research projects with Lufthansa Systems.
Following the drive towards automation of predictive systems building, deployment and maintenance, recent work at Prof. Gabrys’ group resulted in an approach and an open-source software which allows to automatically compose, optimise and adapt mutlicomponent predictive systems (MCPS) potentially consisting of multiple data preprocessing, data transformation, feature and predictive model selection and postprocessing steps. Our findings, supported by extensive experimental analysis, can have a major impact on development of high quality predictive models as well as their maintenance and scalability aspects needed in modern applications and deployment scenarios. All of these will be covered and discussed during this keynote talk.
