This book is about methods and techniques popularly employed in the field of computational intelligence (CI). According to , CI can be broadly defined as ??the branch of science studying problems for which there are no effective computational algorithms??. These include problems such as extracting meaning from perception, understanding language, solving illdefined vision tasks, for which formulating exact, analytical algorithms is either not possible or computationally very demanding. Seeing from this viewpoint, it is instructive to define CI based on the problems studied, rather than the types of method used for solutions.
