The series of Online World Conferences on Soft Computing (WSC) is organized by the World Federation of Soft Computing (WFSC) and has become an established annual event in the academic calendar and was already held for the 8th time in 2003. Starting as a small workshop held at Nagoya University, Japan in 1994 it has - tured to the premier online event on soft computing in industrial applications. It has been hosted by the universities of Granada, Spain, Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, Berlin, Cran?eld University, Helsinki University of Technology and Nagoya University. The goal of WFSC is to promote soft computing across the world, by using the internet as a forum for virtual technical discussion and publishing at no cost to authors and participants. The of?cial journal of the World Federation on Soft Computing is the journal Applied Soft Computing. The 8th WSC Conference (WSC8) took place from September 29th to October 10th, 2003. Registered participants had the opportunity to follow and discuss the online presentations of authors from all over the world. Out of more than 60 subm- sions the program committee had accepted 27 papers for ?nal presentation at WSC8.

This book is an introduction to some new fields in soft computing with its principal components of fuzzy logic, ANN and EA. The approach in this book is to provide an understanding of the soft computing field and to work through soft computing using examples. It also aims to integrate pseudo-code operational summaries and Matlab codes, to present computer simulation, to include real world applications and to highlight the distinctive work of human consciousness in machine.

The book is a collection of papers presented in the United Kingdom at an international two day workshop on Soft Computing held at the De Montfort University. It consists of 38 papers representing the current interests in the fields of fuzzy logic, artificial neural networks and genetic algorithms. In particular there is a strong emphasis on the use of these techniques for applications that tackle real problems faced in industry. The strength of the work is that it is a snapshot of current important research interests in these areas, both from a research and application point of view. It will be of interest to researchers (both academic and from industry) as well as post graduate students who wish to see some of the more recent developments in the soft computing field.

The Internet has been acknowledged as a recent technological revolution, due to its significant impact on society as a whole. Nevertheless, precisely due to its impact, limitations of the current Internet are becoming apparent; in particular, its inability to automatically take into account the meaning of online documents. Some proposals for taking meaning into account began to appear, mainly the so-called Semantic Web, which includes a set of technologies like RDF that are based on new markup languages. Though these technologies could be technically sound, practical limitations, such as the high training level required to construct Semantic Web pages, and the small proportion of current Semantic Web pages make the Sematic Web marginal today and also in the near foreseeable future. Quantitative Semantics and Soft Computing Methods for the Web: Perspectives and Applications will provide relevant theoretical frameworks and the latest empirical research findings related to quantitative, soft-computing and approximate methods for dealing with Internet semantics. The target audience of this book is composed of professionals and researchers working in the fields of information and knowledge related technologies (e.g. Information sciences and technology, computer science, Web science, and artificial intelligence).

These two volumes constitute the Proceedings of the 7th International Workshop on Soft Computing Applications (SOFA 2016), held on 24–26 August 2016 in Arad, Romania. This edition was organized by Aurel Vlaicu University of Arad, Romania, University of Belgrade, Serbia, in conjunction with the Institute of Computer Science, Iasi Branch of the Romanian Academy, IEEE Romanian Section, Romanian Society of Control Engineering and Technical Informatics (SRAIT) - Arad Section, General Association of Engineers in Romania - Arad Section, and BTM Resources Arad. The soft computing concept was introduced by Lotfi Zadeh in 1991 and serves to highli ght the emergence of computing methodologies in which the accent is on exploiting the tolerance for imprecision and uncertainty to achieve tractability, robustness and lower costs. Soft computing facilitates the combined use of fuzzy logic, neurocomputing, evolutionary computing and probabilistic computing, leading to the concept of hybrid intelligent systems. The rapid emergence of new tools and applications calls for a synergy of scientific and technological disciplines in order to reveal the great potential of soft computing in all domains. The conference papers included in these proceedings, published post-conference, were grouped into the following areas of research: • Methods and Applications in Electrical Engineering • Knowledge-Based Technologies for Web Applications, Cloud Computing, Security Algorithms and Computer Networks • Biomedical Applications • Image, Text and Signal Processing • Machine Learning and Applications • &nb sp; Business Process Management • Fuzzy Applications, Theory and Fuzzy Control • Computational Intelligence in Education • Soft Computing & Fuzzy Logic i n Biometrics (SCFLB) • Soft Computing Algorithms Applied in Economy, Industry and Communication Technology • Modelling and Applications in Textiles The book helps to disseminate advances in selected active research directions in the field of soft computing, along with current issues and applications of related topics. As such, it provides valuable information for professors, researchers and graduate students in the area of soft computing techniques and applications.

The digital revolution and the explosive growth of the internet have helped the collection of huge amounts of useful data of diverse characteristics, which is a valuable and intangible asset in any business of today. This book treats the new, emerging discipline of soft computing, which exploits this data through tolerance for imprecision and uncertainty to achieve solutions for complex problems. Soft computing methodologies include fuzzy sets, neural networks, genetic algorithms, Bayesian belief networks and rough sets, which are explored in detail through case studies and in-depth research. The advent of soft computing marks a significant paradigm shift in computing, with a wide range of applications and techniques which are presented and discussed in the chapters of this book.

Proper analysis of image and multimedia data requires efficient extraction and segmentation techniques. Among the many computational intelligence approaches, the soft computing paradigm is best equipped with several tools and techniques that incorporate intelligent concepts and principles. This book is dedicated to object extraction, image segmentation, and edge detection using soft computing techniques with extensive real-life application to image and multimedia data. The authors start with a comprehensive tutorial on the basics of brain structure and learning, and then the key soft computing techniques, including evolutionary computation, neural networks, fuzzy sets and fuzzy logic, and rough sets. They then present seven chapters that detail the application of representative techniques to complex image processing tasks such as image recognition, lighting control, target tracking, object extraction, and edge detection. These chapters follow a structured approach with detailed explanations of the problems, solutions, results, and conclusions. This is both a standalone textbook for graduates in computer science, electrical engineering, system science, and information technology, and a reference for researchers and engineers engaged with pattern recognition, image processing, and soft computing.
