Computational Intelligence is a fast growing field not least because of the boom related to Data and Autonomous Systems, Cyber-Physical Systems, and other related areas. Society is rapidly moving towards a world where everyday objects will become increasingly smarter. We already use our phones for many other functions apart from making calls; our cars are fast becoming like the airplanes of the past, with increasing computer-assisted/manned controls; and more and more people are turning to computers to do numerous chores from the comfort of their seats -- things like booking plane tickets and accommodation, purchasing entertainment passes, shopping online, and much more.

This increases the need and demand for a systematic methodological and theoretical background of all these applications that are already an integrated part of our everyday lives. The Handbook of Computational Intelligence (in 2 volumes) will give readers the solid theoretical and systematic background based on which various and numerous interesting applications can flourish.

Inspired by nature, and shaped by a solid computational backbone born from Mathematics, Computational Intelligence can also be seen as a further development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) towards solving problems in Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning, bypassing the stalemate between traditional statistics and probability and the incompatibility of their fundamental assumptions with real life.

The Handbook of Computational Intelligence is a product of the convergence of many leading authorities on the subject from around the world including the United States of America, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Russia, Italy, India, and Brazil. It covers fundamental as well as practical and implementation topics in this fast developing area. Included are the areas of fuzzy logic and systems, artificial neural networks, evolutionary computation, industrial applications as well as hybrid systems.

Written in an easy-to-read manner by leaders and rising stars in Computational Intelligence, the Handbook is designed to be a one-stop-shop for advanced readers (with its coverage on the latest achievements) and beginners alike.

This two-volume handbook retails for US$395 / £261 / SGD510 in hardback only. To know more about the book visit http://www.worldscientific.com/worldscibooks/10.1142/9548.
