Introduction
Basics of Soft Computing
What is Soft Computing ?
• The idea of soft computing was initiated in 1981 when Lotfi A. Zadeh
published his first paper on soft data analysis
“What is Soft Computing”,
Soft Computing. Springer-Verlag Germany/USA 1997.].
• Zadeh, defined Soft Computing into one multidisciplinary system as the
fusion of
the fields of Fuzzy Logic, Neuro-Computing, Evolutionary and
Genetic Computing, and Probabilistic Computing.
in
• Soft Computing is the fusion of methodologies designed to model and
difficult to model mathematically.
e.
enable solutions to real world problems, which are not modeled or too
ub
• The aim of Soft Computing is to exploit the tolerance for imprecision,
in order to achieve
et
uncertainty, approximate reasoning, and partial truth
cs
close resemblance with human like decision making.

SC - Definitions
1. Introduction
To begin, first explained, the definitions, the goals, and the importance of
the soft computing. Later, presented its different fields, that is, Fuzzy
Computing, Neural Computing, Genetic Algorithms, and more.
Definitions of Soft Computing (SC)
Lotfi
A.
Zadeh,
1992
:
“Soft
Computing
is
an
emerging approach to
computing which parallel the remarkable ability of the human mind to
reason and learn in a environment of uncertainty and imprecision”.
The
Soft
Computing
consists
of
several
computing
paradigms
mainly :
Fuzzy Systems, Neural Networks, and Genetic Algorithms.
in
• Fuzzy set : for knowledge representation via fuzzy If – Then rules.
e.
• Neural Networks : for learning and adaptation
ub
• Genetic Algorithms : for evolutionary computation
et
These methodologies form the core of SC.
cs
Hybridization of these three creates a successful synergic effect;
that is, hybridization creates a situation where different entities cooperate
ww
w.
advantageously for a final outcome.
Soft Computing is still growing and developing.
Hence, a clear definite agreement on what comprises Soft Computing has
not yet been reached. More new sciences are still merging into Soft Computing.
