Prof. Milan Tuba
Vice Rector for International Relations, Singidunum University,SERBIA

According to Prof. Milan Tuba in his work "Convolutional Neural Networks Optimization and Applications", Artificial intelligence and machine learning, as its subfield, have a high impact on science as well as on the applications used in everyday life. These applications solve tasks in various fields such as healthcare, security, agriculture, astronomy, autonomous vehicles, and many more. Frequent task in these applications is classification and, in large number of cases, classification of digital images. Digital image classification has been widely studied in past decades and significant progress has been made several years ago with the introduction of the convolutional neural networks. Convolutional neural networks represent a special class of deep neural networks which exploits spatial correlation of input data (neighboring pixels in digital images). While building a CNN, with the powerful tools that are available nowadays, is a rather simple task, the improvements in the classification accuracy compared to the existing methods are outstanding. Even though it is relatively easy to implement and modify CNNs, finding the optimal configuration and architecture is a very challenging task due to large number of hyper-parameters such as number and type of layers, number of neurons in each layer, kernel size, optimization algorithm, etc. The CNN should be ajdusted for each task individually since the optimal CNN for one task is not necessarily optimal for another. Currently, an efficient method for tuning CNNs’ hyperparameters and determining its architecture does not exist. The common method for establishing CNN’s configuration is by guessing and estimating (guestimating) better values for the hyper-parameters. Since adjusting CNNs’ hyperparameters for the concrete problem represents a hard optimization problem, it can be tackled by swarm intelligence algorithms. This process is time consuming but several studies have shown that adjusting CNNs’ hyperparameters by swarm intelligence algorithms improves the classification accuracy
