Summary and Info
This state-of-the-art survey offers a renewed and refreshing focus on the progress in nature-inspired and linguistically motivated computation. The book presents the expertise and experiences of leading researchers spanning a diverse spectrum of computational intelligence in the areas of neurocomputing, fuzzy systems, evolutionary computation, and adjacent areas. The result is a balanced contribution to the field of computational intelligence that should serve the community not only as a survey and a reference, but also as an inspiration for the future advancement of the state of the art of the field.The 18 selected chapters originate from lectures and presentations given at the 5th IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence, WCCI 2008, held in Hong Kong, China, in June 2008. After an introduction to the field and an overview of the volume, the chapters are divided into four topical sections on machine learning and brain computer interface, fuzzy modeling and control, computational evolution, and applications.
