Soft Control provide introduction to methods of control which use soft computing and computational intelligence. Objective of course includes:

  • To know the AI and specially Computational Intelligence for Automation Engineering related areas:
    • Expert systems
    • Fuzzy Systems
    • Neural Networks
    • Stochastic Optimization
  • To know application, advantages and disadvantages of each method.
  • To understand and apply the design methods; specially for Soft Control.
