Book Description:

Swarm Intelligence: Principles, Advances, and Applications delivers in-depth coverage of bat, artificial fish swarm, firefly, cuckoo search, flower pollination, artificial bee colony, wolf search, and gray wolf optimization algorithms. The book begins with a brief introduction to mathematical optimization, addressing basic concepts related to swarm intelligence, such as randomness, random walks, and chaos theory. The text then: Describes the various swarm intelligence optimization methods, standardizing the variants, hybridizations, and algorithms whenever possible Discusses variants that focus more on binary, discrete, constrained, adaptive, and chaotic versions of the swarm optimizers Depicts real-world applications of the individual optimizers, emphasizing variable selection and fitness function design Details the similarities, differences, weaknesses, and strengths of each swarm optimization method Draws parallels between the operators and searching manners of the different algorithms Swarm Intelligence: Principles, Advances, and Applications presents a comprehensive treatment of modern swarm intelligence optimization methods, complete with illustrative examples and an extendable MATLAB package for feature selection in wrapper mode applied on different data sets with benchmarking using different evaluation criteria. The book provides beginners with a solid foundation of swarm intelligence fundamentals, and offers experts valuable insight into new directions and hybridizations.

Artificial Intelligence

Apr 09 2017 Over the coming decades, Artificial Intelligence will profoundly impact the way we live, work, wage war, play, seek a mate, educate our young, and care for our elderly. It is likely to greatly increase our aggregate wealth, but it will also upend our labor markets, reshuffle our social order, and strain our private and public institutions. Eventually it may alter how we see our place in the universe, as machines pursue goals independent of their creators and outperform us in domains previously believed to be the sole dominion of humans. Whether we regard them as conscious or unwitting, revere ...

May 05 2017 Recent advances in understanding the brain and in programming intelligent computers show that we are not far away to achieve a true conscious and creative Artificial Intelligence. But such an AI will not think like a human! It will be much more intelligent and will thinks much faster than us! This opens the door to all expectations and to all fears. What is happening inside our brains? How does our mind work? What is intelligence ? What is conscience? Will we create someday a true artificial intelligence? How can we design it? What will its capabilities be like, and should we fear it? This boo...
