Soft Computing is a complex of methodologies that includes artificial neural networks, genetic algorithms, fuzzy logic, Bayesian networks, and their hybrids. It admits approximate reasoning, imprecision, uncertainty and partial truth in order to mimic the remarkable human capability of making decisions in real-life, ambiguous environments. Soft Computing has therefore become popular in developing systems that encapsulate human expertise. 'Applications of Soft Computing: Updating the State of Art' contains a collection of papers that were presented at the 12th On-line World Conference on Soft Computing in Industrial Applications, held in October 2007. This carefully edited book provides a comprehensive overview of the recent advances in the industrial applications of soft computing and covers a wide range of application areas, including design, intelligent control, optimization, signal processing, pattern recognition, computer graphics, production, as well as civil engineering and applications to traffic and transportation systems. The book is aimed at researchers and practitioners who are engaged in developing and applying intelligent systems principles to solving real-world problems. It is also suitable as wider reading for science and engineering postgraduate students.

Rapid advancements in the application of soft computing tools and techniques have proven valuable in the development of highly scalable systems and resulted in brilliant applications, including those in biometric identification, interactive voice response systems, and data mining. Although many resources on the subject adequately cover the theoretic concepts, few provide clear insight into practical application. Filling this need, Real Life Applications of Soft Computing explains such applications, including the underlying technology and its implementation. While these systems initially seem complex, the authors clearly demonstrate how they can be modeled, designed, and implemented. Written in a manner that makes it accessible to novices, the book begins by covering the theoretical foundations of soft computing. It supplies a concise explanation of various models, principles, algorithms, tools, and techniques, including artificial neural networks, fuzzy systems, evolutionary algorithms, and hybrid algorithms. Supplying in-depth exposure to real life systems, the text provides: Multi-dimensional coverage supported by references, figures, and tables Warnings about common pitfalls in the implementation process, as well as detailed examinations of possible solutions A timely account of developments in various areas of application Solved examples and exercises in each chapter Detailing a wide range of contemporary applications, the text includes coverage of those in biometric systems, including physiological and behavioral biometrics. It also examines applications in legal threat assessment, robotic path planning, and navigation control. The authors consider fusion methods in biometrics and bioinformatics and also provide effective disease identification techniques. Complete with algorithms for robotic path planning, the book addresses character recognition and presents the picture compression technique by using a customized hybrid algorithm. The authors conclude with a discussion of parallel architecture for artificial neural networks and supply guidelines for creating and implementing effective soft computing designs.

The book provides a sample of research on the innovative theory and applications of soft computing paradigms. The idea of Soft Computing was initiated in 1981 when Professor Zadeh published his first paper on soft data analysis and constantly evolved ever since. Professor Zadeh defined Soft Computing as the fusion of the fields of fuzzy logic (FL), neural network theory (NN) and probabilistic reasoning (PR), with the latter subsuming belief networks, evolutionary computing including DNA computing, chaos theory and parts of learning theory into one multidisciplinary system. As Zadeh said the essence of soft computing is that unlike the traditional, hard computing, soft computing is aimed at an accommodation with the pervasive imprecision of the real world. Thus, the guiding principle of soft computing is to exploit the tolerance for imprecision, uncertainty and partial truth to achieve tractability, robustness, low solution cost and better rapport with reality. In the final analysis, the role model for soft computing is the human mind. We hope that the reader will share our excitement and find our volume both useful and inspiring.

This book reports on an in-depth study of fuzzy time series (FTS) modeling. It reviews and summarizes previous research work in FTS modeling and also provides a brief introduction to other soft-computing techniques, such as artificial neural networks (ANNs), rough sets (RS) and evolutionary computing (EC), focusing on how these techniques can be integrated into different phases of the FTS modeling approach. In particular, the book describes novel methods resulting from the hybridization of FTS modeling approaches with neural networks and particle swarm optimization. It also demonstrates how a new ANN-based model can be successfully applied in the context of predicting Indian summer monsoon rainfall. Thanks to its easy-to-read style and the clear explanations of the models, the book can be used as a concise yet comprehensive reference guide to fuzzy time series modeling, and will be valuable not only for graduate students, but also for researchers and professionals working for academic, business and government organizations.

SOFT COMPUTING: Fundamentals and Applications starts with an introduction to soft computing, a family consists of many members, namely Genetic Algorithms (GAs), Fuzzy Logic (FL), Neural Networks (NNs), and others. To realize the need for a non-traditional optimization tool like GA, one chapter is devoted to explain the principle of traditional optimization. The working cycle of a GA is explained in detail. The mechanisms of some specialized GAs are then discussed with some appropriate examples. The working principles of some other non-traditional optimization tools like Simulated Annealing (SA) and Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) are discussed in detail. Multi-objective optimization has been dealt in a separate chapter, where the working principles of a few approaches are explained. Fuzzy sets are introduced before explaining the principle of fuzzy reasoning and clustering. The fundamentals of NNs are presented, prior to the discussion on various forms of NN. The combined techniques, such as GA-FL, GA-NN, NN-FL and GA-FL-NN are then explained, and the last chapter deals with the applications of soft computing in two different fields of research. It has been written to fulfill the requirements of a large number of readers belonging to various disciplines of engineering and general sciences. The algorithms are discussed with a number of solved numerical examples. It will be very much helpful to the students, scientists and practicing engineers.

This book contains recent theoretical innovations and a comprehensive collection of industrial applications in the emerging field of Soft Computing. Soft computing is a new form of artificial intelligence and it consists of four core methodologies: Fuzzy Computing, Neuro Computing, Evolutionary Computation, and Probabilistic Computing. These individual techniques are clearly complementary or synergistic rather than competitive. Therefore, it is a common practice to combine two or three methodologies when solving complex problems. Also the systematic fusion of soft computing and hard computing is a highly potential alternative to be considered. Soft computing methodologies are suitable for various real-world applications, because the available information and system knowledge are often imprecise, un certain, or partially even incorrect. To handle such demanding conditions and obtain the required robustness with pure hard computing would typically be either very difficult or expensive. This book is a unique collection of technical articles providing a thorough overview of the state-of-the-art theory and industrial applications. The core articles on evolutionary computation, fuzzy computing, and neuro computing are of particular interest to researchers and practicing engineers.
