Nature has developed resilient systems of intelligence throughout the millions of species that have evolved throughout time – so how can we design AI Intelligence to help us harnesses nature’s intelligence?
Professor Seyedali (Ali) Mirjalili is a global leader in the field of AI. As a child, he was intrigued by the natural world and would spend hours watching the ants in his backyard, searching for food, and solving problems as a collective. His work focuses on AI models inspired by nature, including complex intelligence systems of Wolf packs, Ant colonies, and Bird flocks. Professor Seyedali Mirjalili is the director of the Center for Artificial Intelligence Research and Optimization at Torrens University. He has gained international recognition for his contributions to nature-inspired artificial intelligence techniques, with over 500 published works that have received more than 80,000 citations and an H-index of 90. He has been on the list of the top 1% of highly-cited researchers since 2019, and the Web of Science named him one of the most influential researchers in the world. In 2022 and 2023, The Australian newspaper recognized him as a global leader in Artificial Intelligence and a national leader in the Evolutionary Computation and Fuzzy Systems fields.
He is a senior member of IEEE and holds editorial positions at several top AI journals, including Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence, Applied Soft Computing, Neurocomputing, Advances in Engineering Software, Computers in Biology and Medicine, Healthcare Analytics, Applied Intelligence, and Decision Analytics.
