IEEE Press Series on Computational Intelligence

Aims and Scope

The IEEE Press Series on Computational Intelligence includes books on neural, fuzzy, and evolutionary computation, and related technologies, of interest to the engineering and scientific communities. Computational intelligence focuses on emulating aspects of biological systems to construct software and/or hardware that learns and adapts. Such systems include neural networks, our use of language to convey complex ideas, and the evolutionary process of variation and selection. The series highlights the most-recent and groundbreaking research and development in these areas, as well as the important hybridization of concepts and applications across these areas. The audiences for books in the series include undergraduate and graduate students, practitioners, and researchers in computational intelligence.

Dr. David Fogel is an internationally recognized scientist, speaker, and engineer. He holds a Ph.D. in engineering from UCSD (1992) and a B.S. in mathematics (statistics) from UCSB (1985). In 1999, he was elevated to the status of IEEE Fellow, the second-youngest Fellow in the history of the world’s largest organization of professional engineers. In 2004, he received an IEEE Technical Field Award, and he has received numerous other distinctions, including San Diego Distinguished Scientist of the Year from Sigma Xi, the CajAstur Prize for Soft Computing (20,000 euros), and he received an honorary doctorate in 2008 from the University of Pretoria. In 2009, Dr. Fogel was named one of the top100 most influential alumni in the then 50-year history of the University of California at San Diego. In 2014, Dr. Fogel was recognized as an “AI Hero” by the 150-member artificial intelligence team at Lockheed Martin.

Some of Dr. Fogel’s experience includes:

  • Nearly 200 plenary/invited lectures at diverse venues
  • 30+ years of pioneering contributions in computational intelligence
  • Author of 8 books and over 200 technical publications

Fundamentals of Computational Intelligence cover image

James M. Keller, Derong Liu, David B. Fogel

July 2016

Provides an in-depth and even treatment of the three pillars of computational intelligence and how they relate to one another

This book covers the three fundamental topics that form the basis of computational intelligence:  neural networks, fuzzy systems, and evolutionary computation. The text focuses on inspiration, design, theory, and practical aspects of implementing procedures to solve real-world problems. While other books in the three fields that comprise computational intelligence are written by specialists in one discipline, this book is co-written by current former Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems, a former Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems, and the founding Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation. The coverage across the three topics is both uniform and consistent in style and notation.

  • Discusses single-layer and multilayer neural networks, radial-basis function networks, and recurrent neural networks
  • Covers fuzzy set theory, fuzzy relations, fuzzy logic interference, fuzzy clustering and classification, fuzzy measures and fuzzy integrals
  • Examines evolutionary optimization, evolutionary learning and problem solving, and collective intelligence
  • Includes end-of-chapter practice problems that will help readers apply methods and techniques to real-world problems

Fundamentals of Computational Intelligence is written for advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and practitioners in electrical and computer engineering, computer science, and other engineering disciplines.
