Synergy in Computational Intelligence

  • Christine L. Mumford
Part of the Intelligent Systems Reference Library book series (ISRL, volume 1)


This chapter introduces the book. It begins with a historical perspective on Computational Intelligence (CI), and discusses its relationshipwith the longer established term “Artificial Intelligence” (AI). The chapter then gives a brief overview of the main CI techniques, and concludes with short summaries of all the chapters in the book.


Fuzzy Logic Evolutionary Algorithm Fuzzy System Computational Intelligence MultiAgent System 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
