There is a clear demand in advanced process industries, defense, and Internet and communication (VoIP) applications for intelligent yet adaptive/evolving systems. Evolving Intelligent Systems is the first self– contained volume that covers this newly established concept in its entirety, from a systematic methodology to case studies to industrial applications. Featuring chapters written by leading world experts, it addresses the progress, trends, and major achievements in this emerging research field, with a strong emphasis on the balance between novel theoretical results and solutions and practical real–life applications.
Explains the following fundamental approaches for developing evolving intelligent systems (EIS):
the Hierarchical Prioritized Structure
the Participatory Learning Paradigm
the Evolving Takagi–Sugeno fuzzy systems (eTS+)
the evolving clustering algorithm that stems from the well–known Gustafson–Kessel offline clustering algorithm
Emphasizes the importance and increased interest in online processing of data streams
Outlines the general strategy of using the fuzzy dynamic clustering as a foundation for evolvable information granulation
Presents a methodology for developing robust and interpretable evolving fuzzy rule–based systems
Introduces an integrated approach to incremental (real–time) feature extraction and classification
Proposes a study on the stability of evolving neuro–fuzzy recurrent networks
Details methodologies for evolving clustering and classification
Reveals different applications of EIS to address real problems in areas of:
evolving inferential sensors in chemical and petrochemical industry
learning and recognition in robotics
Features downloadable software resources
Evolving Intelligent Systems is the one–stop reference guide for both theoretical and practical issues for computer scientists, engineers, researchers, applied mathematicians, machine learning and data mining experts, graduate students, and professionals.
