Artificial Intelligence (AI) versus Computational Intelligence (CI) for treatment of complexity in design

  title={Artificial Intelligence (AI) versus Computational Intelligence (CI) for treatment of complexity in design},
  author={Michael S. Bittermann},
The complexity of design tasks has a number of aspects. Three of them are the vagueness of objectives, conflicting nature of objectives, as well as the large amount of possible solutions. This paper considers two major approaches addressing treatment of these complexity aspects, namely approaches based on methods from the domain of classical artificial intelligence (AI) and approaches using methods from the emerging paradigm of computational intelligence (CI). Challenges of the methodologies in…

Structural Design Exploration of High-rise Design Concepts Using Genetic Algorithms

A deeper insight into why optimization is difficult in the conceptual phase is found, a method that is considerate of these difficulties, and an analysis tool for this method are proposed.

Fuzzy ontology for knowledge mobilisation and decision support

The thesis introduces both practical and theoretical advances on how fuzzy logic, ontologies (fuzzy ontologies) and OWA operators can be utilized for different decision making problems and demonstrates how a fuzzy ontology can model tacit knowledge which was collected from wine connoisseurs.


A review in latest trends of Bio-Inspired Intrusion Detection (BIID) based on three principles established in order to enhance the existing intrusion detection shows that bio-inspired approach could play a major role in providing autonomous intrusion detection.

Quantum-Inspired Computational Intelligence for Economic Emission Dispatch Problem

This chapter discusses the use and scope of different quantum inspired computational intelligence (QCI) methods for solving EED problems, and evaluates each previously used QCI methods for EED problem and discusses their superiority and credibility against other methods.



Intelligent Design Objects (IDO): a cognitive approach for performance-based design

A novel approach for design is proposed, where computation is used to reach most suitable solutions for conflicting goals and designers and decision makers have great certainty about the satisfaction of their goals and are able to concentrate on second order aspects they were not aware of prior to the execution.

Automated discovery of vital knowledge from Pareto-optimal solutions: First results from engineering design

A genetic algorithm based unsupervised approach is proposed for learning governing principles from the Pareto-optimal dataset of the base problem, capable of discovering analytical relationships of a certain type between different problem entities.

Adaptive Formation of Pareto Front in Evolutionary Multi-objective Optimization

This work addresses the issue with a novel concept of adaptive formation of Pareto front based on relaxed dominance domains, which basically refer to a degree of relaxation of the dominance in the terminology of MOEAs with an application from the domain of architectural design.

Fuzzy logic, neural networks, and soft computing

Today, the authors have microwave ovens and washing machines that can figure out on their own what settings to use to perform their tasks optimally; cameras that come close to professional photographers in picture-taking ability; and many other products that manifest an impressive capability to reason, make intelligent decisions, and learn from experience.

A Neural Fuzzy System for Soft Computing

An innovative neural fuzzy system is considered for soft computing in design where Gaussian function plays the role of membership function, and the total tree structure effectively works as a fuzzy logic system having system inputs and outputs.
