Book Objectives & Mission: 

The past years have witnessed a large number of interesting applications of various computational intelligence techniques, such as rough sets, Neural Networks; Fuzzy Logic; Evolutionary Computing; Artificial Immune Systems; Swarm Intelligence; Reinforcement Learning and evolutionary computation, to intelligent multimedia processing.  In spite of numerous successful applications of computational intelligence techniques in business and industry, it is sometimes difficult to explain from a theoretical perspective. This volume (s) is devoted to putting together all the latest developments and rigorous studies of the foundations of computational intelligence, so that new breakthroughs can be fostered.

About the series "Studies in Computational Intelligence"

 

 

 

 

 

      The series "Studies in Computational Intelligence" (SCI) publishes new developments and advances in the various areas of computational intelligence – quickly and with a high quality. The intent is to cover the theory, applications, and design methods of computational intelligence, as embedded in the fields of engineering, computer science, physics and life science, as well as the methodologies behind them. The series contains monographs, lecture notes and edited volumes in computational intelligence spanning the areas of neural networks, connectionist systems, genetic algorithms, evolutionary computation, artificial intelligence, cellular automata, self-organizing systems, soft computing, fuzzy systems, and hybrid intelligent systems. Critical to both contributors and readers are the short publication time and world-wide distribution - this permits a rapid and broad dissemination of research results.
