Computational Intelligence

Computational Intelligence (CI) is a domain of artificial intelligence in which the emphasis is placed on heuristic algorithms such as neural networks, fuzzy systems and evolutionary computation. In addition Computational Intelligence also encompasses elements of learning, adaptation, heuristic and meta-heuristic optimization, as well as any hybrid methods which use a combination of one or more of these techniques. Computational Intelligence techniques have been successfully employed in a wide range of application areas, including decision support and classification, consumer electronic devices, stock market and other time-series prediction, combinatorial optimization, medical, biomedical and bioinformatics problems.

Entry requirements
