Course Description:
The aim of this module is to expose the students to a range of biologically-inspired computational intelligence methods, and their applications to engineering. From biological nervous systems to the collective intelligence of social insects, Nature has developed a number of highly effective problem-solving techniques. The course will introduce the basic concepts of approximate reasoning, collective and decentralised intelligence, and present a number of cutting edge nature-inspired Swarm Intelligence paradigms, as well as well-established techniques such as Evolutionary Algorithms, Simulated Annealing, Neural Networks, and Fuzzy Logic. Applications will include a broad range of engineering problems in optimisation, control, and process modelling.
