The main objective of this course is to acquaint participants with
Computational Intelligence and Soft Computing and provide them with
working knowledge for building intelligent systems for solving practical
Participants not only benefit from understanding methods and
procedures involved in computational intelligence including fuzzy
modelling, artificial neural networks, hybrid neuro-fuzzy systems and
genetic algorithms, but also acquire access to the state-of-the-art in
soft computing.
Target Audience
Researchers, scientists and engineers who face challenging problems
and cannot solve them by using traditional approaches, everyone who
wants to understand the tremendous achievements in soft computing
and computational intelligence.
