9780470848708: Computational Intelligence: An Introduction

Computational intelligence is the study of adaptive mechanisms to enable or facilitate intelligent behaviour in complex and changing environments. As such, computational intelligence combines artificial neural networks, evolutionary computing, swarm intelligence and fuzzy systems.

This book presents a highly readable and systematic introduction to the fundamentals of computational intelligence. In-depth treatments of the more important and most frequently used techniques are also given. The book provides treatment of computational intelligence in a manner which allows the reader to easily implement the different techniques, and to apply these techniques to solve real-world, complex problems.

Key features include:
* A balanced treatment of the different computational intelligence paradigms
* Inclusion of swarm intelligence
* Coverage of the most recent developments in computational intelligence
* Complete algorithms presented in pseudo-code to allow implementation in any language
* Includes numerous exercises to involve and stimulate the reader further
The careful and considered approach to this key subject makes this book appropriate for both the first-time reader, as well as individuals already active in the field.

From the Back Cover:

Can computers be intelligent?

This question causes even more debate than the definitions of intelligence do.

Computational intelligence is the study of adaptive mechanisms to enable or facilitate intelligent behaviour in complex and changing environments. As such, computational intelligence encompasses artificial neural networks, evolutionary computing, swarm intelligence and fuzzy systems.

This book presents a systematic introduction to the fundamentals of computational intelligence, including in-depth treatments of the more important and most frequently used techniques. Numerous explanations and exercises allow readers to implement the different techniques themselves, and to apply these techniques to solve real-world, complex problems.

Key features include:
* State-of the-art coverage of the most recent developments in computational intelligence

* Balanced treatment of the different computational intelligence paradigms

* Complete algorithms in pseudo-code for easy implementation

* Exercises to stimulate thought and to breed new ideas

* Easily accessible style: ideal for readers new to the subject as well
This comprehensive reference ranging from artificial neural networks to swarm intelligence will prove essential reading for undergraduates on third or fourth year and post-graduate courses in computer science as well as researchers new to the field.

Review:

"...a wonderful book on many of the 'hot topics'...a fascinating read for anyone studying computational intelligence..." (Measurement and Control, Vol 37(5), June 2004)
