Computational Intelligence and Its Applications in Healthcare presents rapidly growing applications of computational intelligence for healthcare systems, including intelligent synthetic characters, man-machine interface, menu generators, user acceptance analysis, pictures archiving, and communication systems. Computational intelligence is the study of the design of intelligent agents, which are systems that act intelligently: they do what they think are appropriate for their circumstances and goals; they're flexible to changing environments and goals; they learn from experience; and they make appropriate choices given perceptual limitations and finite computation. Computational intelligence paradigms offer many advantages in maintaining and enhancing the field of healthcare.
