Presents recent research in Soft Computing for Recognition based on Biometrics
Describes applications of hybrid intelligence systems using soft computing techniques for image analysis
Explores pattern recognition based on biometrics
We describe in this book, bio-inspired models and applications of hybrid intelligent systems using soft computing techniques for image analysis and pattern recognition based on biometrics and other information sources. Soft Computing (SC) consists of several intelligent computing paradigms, including fuzzy logic, neural networks, and bio-inspired optimization algo-rithms, which can be used to produce powerful hybrid intelligent systems. The book is organized in five main parts, which contain a group of papers around a similar subject.
