Soft computing: the convergence of emerging reasoning technologies

  title={Soft computing: the convergence of emerging reasoning technologies},
  author={Piero P. Bonissone},
  journal={Soft Comput.},
The term Soft Computing (SC) represents the combination of emerging problem-solving technologies such as Fuzzy Logic (FL), Probabilistic Reasoning (PR), Neural Networks (NNs), and Genetic Algorithms (GAs). Each of these technologies provide us with complementary reasoning and searching methods to solve complex, real-world problems. After a brief description of each of these technologies, we will analyze some of their most useful combinations, such as the use of FL to control GAs and NNs… CONTINUE READING
