OMEGA is a collaborative innovation center for Computational Intelligence (CI), established jointly by CI reseachers from Xidian University & Northwestern Polytechnical University, Xi'an, China. In 2012, OMEGA was appointed as the Innovative Research Team of Shaanxi Province, China.
'OMEGA' means 'Optimization and Mining Knowledge via Artificial Intelligence'. OMEGA dedicates to pursuing fundamental research and engineering application of Computational Intelligence methods to creating innovative solutions. The special interests of OMEGA include
CI Model and Algorithm (Evolutionary Optimization, Deep Network Learning, Fuzzy Information Processing)
CI-based Network Analytics (Network Structure, Network Robustness, Network Prediction)
CI-based Radar and Remote Sensing Image Understanding (Registration, Feature Learning, Change Detection)
Various Real-world Applications
Currently, there are four full-time members, three visiting reseachers, seventeen PhD students and over tweenty master students in the OMEGA. The founding and current head of OMEGA is Prof. Maoguo Gong.
Dr. Maoguo Gong received the B. Eng degree and Ph.D. degree from Xidian University. Since 2006, he has been a teacher of Xidian University. He was promoted to associate professor and full professor in 2008 and 2010, respectively, both with exceptive admission.
Gong’s research interests are broadly in the area of computational intelligence, with applications to optimization, learning, data mining and image understanding. He has published over one hundred papers in journals and conferences, and holds over twenty granted patents as the first inventor. He is leading or has completed over ten projects as the PI, funded by the National Natural Science Foundation of China, the National High Technology Research and Development Program (863 Program) of China and others. He was the recipient of the prestigious National Program for Support of Top-notch Young Professionals (selected by the Central Organization Department of China), the Excellent Young Scientist Foundation (selected by the National Natural Science Foundation of China), the New Century Excellent Talent in University (selected by the Ministry of Education of China), the Young Teacher Award by the Fok Ying Tung Education Foundation, and the National Natural Science Award of China.
He is the Executive Committee Member of Chinese Association for Artificial Intelligence, Senior Member of IEEE and Chinese Computer Federation, Associate Editor or Editorial Board Member for five journals including "IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation" and "Memetic Computing".
