[PBN "Rising Star Innovator" Award and
Interview]: FORWARD THINKING:
Haibo He, a researcher at the University of Rhode Island, College of
Engineering, is leading a team that specializes in artificial intelligence and machine learning that attempt to have computers mimic the human
brain. This interview highlights some of Haibo and his group's research
on computational intelligence, adaptive systems, and their applications. [Read more >>>].
energy demands and environmental concerns have significantly increased
the interest of smart grid. The CISA group has been focused on
several critical aspects of smart grid research, including:
intelligent power grid control and optimization, renewable energy, and
smart grid security (both cyber security
and physical failures of the grid). This research will contribute to developing
robust, secure, and reliable future smart grid systems.

With the continuous expansion of data availability in many complex systems, it
becomes critical to advance the fundamental research of intelligent data
analysis. This Survey Paper provides a comprehensive and critical review of
Imbalanced Learning, including the foundation and nature of the problem,
state-of-the-art techniques, assessment metrics, as well as future research
opportunities and directions on Imbalanced Learning.
