Applications of Computational Intelligence in Multi-Disciplinary Research provides the readers with a comprehensive handbook for applying the powerful principles, concepts, and algorithms of computational intelligence to a wide spectrum of research cases. The book covers the main approaches used in computational intelligence, including fuzzy logic, neural networks, evolutionary computation, learning theory, and probabilistic methods, all of which can be collectively viewed as soft computing. Other key approaches included are swarm intelligence and artificial immune systems. These approaches provide researchers with powerful tools for analysis and problem-solving when data is incomplete and when the problem under consideration is too complex for standard mathematics and the crisp logic approach of Boolean computing.

Key Features

  • Provides an overview of the key methods of computational intelligence, including fuzzy logic, neural networks, evolutionary computation, learning theory, and probabilistic methods
  • Includes case studies and real-world examples of computational intelligence applied in a variety of research topics, including bioinformatics, biomedical engineering, big data analytics, information security, signal processing, machine learning, nanotechnology, and optimization techniques
  • Presents a thorough technical explanation on how computational intelligence is applied that is suitable for a wide range of multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research


Computer scientists and researchers in applied informatics, Artificial Intelligence, data science, and information technology. Students and researchers in a variety of disciplines, including biomedical sciences, bioinformatics, biotechnology, clinical applications, nanotechnology, optimization techniques, and web security
