About EMI Group

We are actively recruiting Postdocs and RAs. If you are interested in joining us, please drop an email to: ranchengcn@gmail.com (Dr. Ran Cheng).

The Evolving Machine Intelligence (EMI) group was founded in September 2018, affiliated with Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech), China. Generally, our research motivations can be interpreted at three levels:

  • Philosophically, we are motivated to understand how evolution generates complexity, diversity and intelligence;
  • Scientifically, we are motivated to study how intelligence can be made evolvable;
  • Technically, we are motivated to design learning/optimization computing paradigm across areas between evolutionary computation and deep learning, reinforcement learning, operation research, etc.

 Our cutting-eadge research outcomes provide full-stack solutions  across hardware devices, algorithms, systems and applications.
