The annual Computational Intelligence workshop in Dortmund is a great place for sharing new ideas and recent work done in computational-intelligence related topics. This year, the GMA workshop took place on 23-24 of November at the Dorint Hotel in Dortmund. Our team presented two papers in the fields of surrogate models and time series analysis. In total there were 4 papers presented from members of TH Köln, Campus Gummersbach.

Besides receiving effective feedbacks about our own work, we also had a chance of  listening to many interesting talks about related research work, done in different universities. The presentations had very diverse topics: from more practical ones to very abstract and mathematical ones. The friendly atmosphere, constructive critics and open discussions make this workshop very special and productive.

The OC Digital Day organiezed by TH Köln and Opitz Consulting group has taken place at TH Köln Campus Gummersbach last Sturday. Many talks and a few keynotes were presented in the field of digitalising (model-based optimization, Big Data, Oracle, Gamification, smart home, ...) by Opitz employees as well as TH Köln students. Our group also joined this coneference with a presentation about the main ideas behind the model-based optimization for real world problems.

You can find a short video about Digital Day here.

We had the chance to present our work in the field of online model selection for surrogate assisted multivariate optimization in the 15th workshop of quality improvment methods which was held in Dortmund and organized by the statistics faculty of TU Dortmund.

Due to a major release change in SPOT, the newest package version SPOT 2.0 on CRAN is currently not compatible with TDMR 1.5 (and TDMR 1.4). Therefore TDMR is currently archived on CRAN. We are working on an update. For the time being:

You can download TDMR 1.5 (and 1.4) together with the last compatible SPOT 1.1.0 from this web site. Please follow the installation instructions here on our download page.
