This book focuses on soft computing and its applications to solve real-life problems occurring in different domains ranging from medical and health care, supply chain management and image processing to cryptanalysis. It presents the proceedings of International Conference on Soft Computing: Theories and Applications (SoCTA 2016), offering significant insights into soft computing for teachers and researchers and inspiring more and more researchers to work in the field of soft computing.
The term soft computing represents an umbrella term for computational techniques like fuzzy logic, neural networks, and nature inspired algorithms. In the past few decades, there has been an exponential rise in the application of soft computing techniques for solving complex and intricate problems arising in different spheres of life. The versatility of these techniques has made them a favorite among scientists and researchers working in diverse areas. SoCTA is the first international conference being organized at Amity University Rajasthan (AUR), Jaipur. The objective of SoCTA 2016 is to provide a common platform to researchers, academicians, scientists, and industrialists working in the area of soft computing to share and exchange their views and ideas on the theory and application of soft computing techniques in multi-disciplinary areas. The aim of the conference is to bring together young and experienced researchers, academicians, scientists, and industrialists for the exchange of knowledge. SoCTA especially encourages the young researchers at the beginning of their career to participate in this conference and present their work on this platform.

Built prime metric has to replace space-time metric. Designed and built multiple machines and technologies include: (1) angstrom probe for neuron signals, (2) dielectric imaging of neuron firing, (3) single protein and its complex structure’s resonant imaging, and (4) fourth circuit element Hinductor. A new frequency fractal model is built to represent biological machines. His group has designed and synthesized several forms of organic brain jelly (programmable matter) that learns, programs and solves problems by itself for futuristic robots during 2000–2014, also several software simulators that write complex codes by itself.
