Introduction to Soft Computing
by Eva Volna
Publisher: Bookboon 2013
Number of pages: 137
This book gives an introduction to Soft Computing, which aims to exploit tolerance for imprecision, uncertainty, approximate reasoning, and partial truth in order to achieve close resemblance with human like decision making.
