    BISC Seminar on Soft Computing

    Spring 2001 Course Control No: 1-2 units
                                            26813 1 hour lecture

    DESCRIPTION: Soft computing (SC) is an association of computing methodologies
    centered on fuzzy logic (FL), neurocomputing (NC), evolutionary computing (EC),
    machine learning (ML) and probabilistic computing (PC). The principal aim of
    soft computing is to provide a wide variety of conceptual and computational
    tools for conception, design, construction and utilization of
    information/intelligent systems. The basic premise underlying soft computing is
    that its constituent methodologies are for the most part complementary and
    synergistic rather than competitive. The guiding principle of soft computing is:
    Exploit the tolerance for imprecision, uncertainty and partial truth to achieve
    tractability, robustness, low solution cost and better rapport with reality.
    Representative of the topics discussed in the Seminar are: Qualitative and
    approximate reasoning; computing with word; manipulation of perceptions,
    intelligent control; intelligent information systems; expert systems; chaotic
    systems; image analysis and image understanding; speech and natural language
    processing; planning; learning; search; data mining; and decision analysis.

    PREREQUISITES: The course is self-contained. No prior knowledge of soft
    computing methodology is required.

    INSTRUCTIRS: Lotfi A. Zadeh with the participation of guest lecturers. Drs.
    Mori Anvari and Masoud Nikravesh will serve as BISC administrators.

    TIME AND PLACE: Thursday 4:00-5:00 PM, 380 Soda Hall
