2022 IEEE International Joint Conference on Neural Networks part of WCCI 2022
Padua, Italy 18-22 July 2022, WCCI 2022, IEEE IJCNN 2022.
Special Session Analysis and Design of
Hybrid Neural Intelligent Models and Applications
In recent years, the analysis and design of hybrid intelligent systems using soft computing techniques and the enhancements of neural and optimization algorithms have been receiving particular attention. Soft Computing (SC) consists of several computing paradigms, including fuzzy logic, neural networks, optimization algorithms, even fractal and chaos theory which can be used to produce powerful hybrid intelligent systems for solving problems in pattern recognition, time series prediction, intelligent control, robotics and automation. Hybrid intelligent systems that combine several SC techniques are needed due to the complexity and high dimensionality of real-world problems. Hybrid intelligent systems can have different architectures, which have an impact on the efficiency and accuracy of these systems, for this reason it is very important to optimize architecture design. The architectures can combine, in different ways, neural networks, fuzzy logic and genetic algorithms, to achieve the ultimate goal of pattern recognition, time series prediction, intelligent control, or other application areas. Hybrid Intelligent Systems combine at least two intelligent technologies: Neural Networks, Fuzzy Logic, and Optimization Algorithms. Each of these methodologies has advantages and disadvantages and many problems have been solved. However, many real-world complex and industrial problems require the integration of several of these techniques to really achieve the efficiency and accuracy needed in practice
Keywords: Design of Hybrid Neural Intelligent Systems, Analysis of complex hybrid intelligent models, Optimization Architecture Design, Intelligent Neural Models for control, Intelligent Neuro Fuzzy Models for time Series Prediction
