About these proceedings


This carefully edited book covers a wide range of application areas of soft computing like optimization, data analysis and data mining, fault diagnosis, control as well as traffic and transportation systems. It contains 25 revised contributions from the 8th Online World Conferences on Soft Computing (WSC8). The collected papers show how the major soft computing techniques, fuzzy systems, neural networks and evolutionary algorithms and especially hybrid systems combining methods from these fields, lead to successful industrial applications. The reader will find an interesting, inspiring and wide variety of soft computing techniques and applications in this book.
