About this book
This second edition of Evolving Connectionist Systems presents generic computational methods and techniques for evolvable, adaptive, knowledge-based models and systems. This edition includes new methods, such as: adaptive model and data integration, adaptive model and feature optimisation, neuro-fuzzy personalised modelling, computational neuro-genetic modelling, quantum inspired information processing, along with new applications in: bioinformatics, brain data modelling, adaptive robots, adaptive decision support systems, adaptive multimodal signal processing. The models and techniques presented are connectionist-based, integrating neural networks, fuzzy rule-based systems, evolutionary computation, and statistical techniques, featuring adaptive learning and knowledge discovery. Divided into two parts, the book opens with evolving processes in nature; looks at methods and techniques for adaptive, evolving, knowledge-based learning; then covers bioinformatics and brain data modelling and knowledge discovery; finishing with various applications for intelligent systems. The book is aimed at all those interested in developing adaptive models and systems to solve challenging real world problems in information sciences and engineering.
