Hybrid architecture for intelligent systems is a new field of artificial intelligence concerned with the development of the next generation of intelligent systems. This volume is the first book to delineate current research interests in hybrid architectures for intelligent systems.
The book is divided into two parts. The first part is devoted to the theory, methodologies, and algorithms of intelligent hybrid systems. The second part examines current applications of intelligent hybrid systems in areas such as data analysis, pattern classification and recognition, intelligent robot control, medical diagnosis, architecture, wastewater treatment, and flexible manufacturing systems.
Hybrid Architectures for Intelligent Systems is an important reference for computer scientists and electrical engineers involved with artificial intelligence, neural networks, parallel processing, robotics, and systems architecture.

Editorial Reviews

Reviews the current research in developing hybrid architectures for the next generation of intelligent computer systems. Reflects the field's focus on integrating the computational paradigms of ex pert systems and neural networks, both conventional and fuzzy, and exploring the similarities between the underlying structures. Two-thirds of the text deals with the theory, methodologies, and algorithms of intelligent hybrid systems; the rest reports some applications in robots, medical diagnosis, architecture, and other areas.
