  title={Recent Trends and Applications of Soft Computing: A Survey},
  author={Aadesh Dhopte and Zeba Ali and Swati Dhopte},
This paper is survey on the development of soft computing applications in various domains. Specifically, it briefly reviews main approaches of soft computing (in the wide sense) , the more recent development of soft computing, and finalise by presenting a panoramic view of applications: from the most abstract to the most practical ones. Within this context, fuzzy logic (FL), genetic algorithms (GA) and artificial neural networks (ANN), as well as their fusion are reviewed in order to examine…
