Nelishia Pillay is a professor at the University of Pretoria in South Africa. She holds the Multichoice Joint-Chair in Machine Learning and SARChI Chair in Artificial Intelligence. She is chair of the IEEE Technical Committee on Intelligent Systems Applications, IEEE Task Force on Hyper-Heuristics and the IEEE Task Force on Automated Algorithm Design, Configuration and Selection. Her research areas include hyper-heuristics, automated design of machine learning and search techniques, combinatorial optimization, genetic programming, genetic algorithms and deep learning. These are the focus areas of the NICOG (Nature-Inspired Computing Optimization) research group which she has established.Rong Qu is an associate professor at the School of Computer Science, University of Nottingham. Her research interests include the modeling and optimisation of combinatorial optimisation problems in optimisation research and artificial intelligence. These include evolutionary algorithms, mathematical programming and metaheuristics integrated with machine learning to automate the design of intelligent algorithms. Dr. Qu is an associated editor at IEEE Computational Intelligence Magazine, IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation, Journal of Operational Research Society and PeerJ Computer Science. She is a Senior IEEE Member since 2012 and the Vice-Chair of Evolutionary Computation Task Committee and Technical Committee on Intelligent Systems Applications at IEEE Computational Intelligence Society.
