The IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computational Intelligence (TETCI) publishes original articles on emerging aspects of computational intelligence, including theory, applications, and surveys.

TETCI is an electronics only publication. TETCI publishes six issues per year.

Authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts in any emerging topic in computational intelligence, especially nature-inspired computing topics not covered by other IEEE Computational Intelligence Society journals. A few such illustrative examples are glial cell networks, computational neuroscience, Brain Computer Interface, ambient intelligence, non-fuzzy computing with words, artificial life, cultural learning, artificial endocrine networks, social reasoning, artificial hormone networks, computational intelligence for the IoT and Smart-X technologies.

A Novel Time Series-Histogram of Features (TS-HoF) Method for Prognostic Applications

Data-driven prognostic methods typically make use of observer signals reflective of the system health combined with machine learning methods to predict the Remaining Useful Life (RUL) of the system. For most prognostic applications, the RUL is closely correlated with changes in data trend exhibited in the observer signals. Motivated by this phenomenon, this paper proposes a novel Time Series-Histogram of Features method, which extracts features describing the local degradation features exhibited by observer signals in a moving time window. The proposed method is illustrated via a case study on a benchmark simulated aero-engine dataset. Results indicate that the proposed methodology performs as well as or better than conventional feature extraction methods on the same time window of information. Furthermore, it is also shown that the proposed method extracts information complementary to conventional feature extraction techniques, thus resulting in superior performance by combining these feature extraction techniques.
