About this Textbook

This textbook provides a clear and logical introduction to the field, covering the fundamental concepts, algorithms and practical implementations behind efforts to develop systems that exhibit intelligent behavior in complex environments. This enhanced second edition has been fully revised and expanded with new content on swarm intelligence, deep learning, fuzzy data analysis, and discrete decision graphs. 
Features: provides supplementary material at an associated website; contains numerous classroom-tested examples and definitions throughout the text; presents useful insights into all that is necessary for the successful application of computational intelligence methods; explains the theoretical background underpinning proposed solutions to common problems; discusses in great detail the classical areas of artificial neural networks, fuzzy systems and evolutionary algorithms; reviews the latest developments in the field, covering such topics as ant colony optimization and probabilistic graphical models.

Reviews

“It is a great book, very well written, that presents solid content in a very rigorous theoretical and practical way and provides an excellent methodological guide to the area of computational intelligence —one that could be qualified as a ‘must’ for the library of any student, professor, researcher or professional in that area.” (José Luis Verdegay, Mathematical Reviews, May, 2017)
