Abstract

Several interpretations of the notion of computational intelligence (CI) exist. Computationally intelligent systems have been characterized by Bezdek relative to adaptivity, fault-tolerance, speed, and error rates. In its original conception, many technologies belonged to computational intelligence, namely, neural networks, genetic algorithms, fuzzy systems, evolutionary programming, and artificial life. More recently, rough set theory and its extensions to approximate reasoning and real-time decision systems have been considered in the context of computationally intelligent systems. Overall, CI can be regarded as a synergy of genetic, fuzzy, rough, and neural computing.
