Special Sessions

Special session: Complex-, hypercomplex-valued and fuzzy neural networks

General description
Complex, Hypercomplex-valued and Fuzzy Neural Networks, such as complex-valued, quaternion-valued, and broader hypercomplex models, have gained significant traction in research over the past decade. Their appeal lies not only in handling multidimensional data adeptly but also in leveraging the geometric and algebraic properties inherent in hypercomplex numbers. For instance, complex-valued networks play a crucial role in accurately interpreting phase information, crucial in various wave- and rotation-centric domains like electromagnetism, light waves, quantum phenomena, and oscillations.
Quaternion-valued networks, tailored for three- and four-dimensional data modeling, have proven effective in processing diverse multivariate images such as color and polarimetric SAR images. Despite substantial theoretical advancements and successful applications, avenues for research in hypercomplex-valued neural networks remain open. This includes extending prevalent real-valued network architectures and training algorithms to accommodate hypercomplex values formally.
The scope of applications for these networks is vast, spanning pattern recognition, classification, nonlinear filtering, intelligent image processing, brain-computer interfaces, time-series prediction, bioinformatics, and robotics.
This dedicated session aims to foster a comprehensive exchange of ideas, showcasing recent research findings, and charting future directions in complex-, hypercomplex-valued and fuzzy neural networks. We guess this forum to attract speakers and researchers with contributing to this burgeoning community, ultimately benefiting computational intelligence researchers and other fields reliant on advanced neural network tools.
