These Transactions publish research in computer-based methods of computational collective intelligence (CCI) and their applications in a wide range of fields such as the Semantic Web, social networks and multi-agent systems. TCCI strives to cover new methodological, theoretical and practical aspects of CCI understood as the form of intelligence that emerges from the collaboration and competition of many individuals (artificial and/or natural). The application of multiple computational intelligence technologies such as fuzzy systems, evolutionary computation, neural systems, consensus theory, etc., aims to support human and other collective intelligence and to create new forms of CCI in natural and/or artificial systems.
This 5th issue contains a collection of 10 carefully selected and thorougly revised contributions. The articles deal with the following topics: web page language identification; a novel image edge detection approach using ant colony optimization techniques; component-based software development through the use of the agent paradigm; a method for integrating gene expression programming and cellular evolutionary algorithms; a model for selecting partners in a society, focussing on contextual fitness; a model for agent knowledge acquisition; methods of faulty video detection; a model for integrating the archival knowledge included in a user profile; a universal and formal description for agent systems; and a real-time and mulitilingual news event extraction system.
