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.

The concept of soft computing is still in its initial stages of crystallization. Presently available books on soft computing are merely collections of chapters or articles about different aspects of the field. This book is the first to provide a systematic account of the major concepts and methodologies of soft computing, presenting a unified framework that makes the subject more accessible to students and practitioners. Particularly worthy of note is the inclusion of a wealth of information about neuro-fuzzy, neuro-genetic, fuzzy-genetic and neuro-fuzzy-genetic systems, with many illuminating applications and examples.

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.

This book discusses soft computing, which provides an efficient platform to deal with imprecision, uncertainty, vagueness and approximation in order to attain robustness and reliable computing. It explores two major concepts of soft computing: fuzzy set theory and neural networks, which relate to uncertainty handling and machine learning techniques respectively. Generally, fuzzy sets are considered as vague or uncertain sets having membership function lying between 0 and 1, and ANN is a type of artificial intelligence that attempts to imitate the way a human brain works by configuring specific applications, for instance pattern recognition or data classification, through learning processes. The book also presents C/MATLAB programming codes related to the basics of fuzzy set, interval arithmetic and ANN in a concise, practical and adaptable manner along, with simple examples and self-validation unsolved practice questions in few cases
