Brief Summary

Computational Intelligence has emerged from the fusion of the fields of neural networks, fuzzy systems and evolutionary computation. For the first time, contributions of world-renowned experts and pioneers in the field are collected into a single volume. The articles are grouped into the following categories: Computational Learning Theory, Approximate Reasoning, Evolutionary Computation, Biological Computation and Pattern Recognition, Intelligent Control, Hybrid Computational Intelligence, and Applications. The contributions were first presented in a special Plenary Symposium held in conjunction with the 1994 World Congress on Computational Intelligence.
