Description

The Computational Intelligence and its Applications (COMIA) Book Series encompasses all branches of artificial intelligence which are based on computation at some level such as artificial neural networks, evolutionary algorithms, case based reasoning, probabilistic reasoning, fuzzy systems, artificial immune systems, and agent based systems. This series publishes academic work based either on one of the computational intelligence techniques or on applications of these techniques to a field of human endeavor.

COMIA seeks to expand literature on the most influential aspects of computing that are directly affecting the state of global culture. Because computational intelligence applications are being used with greater frequency and importance, this series aims to provide a high-quality forum for further research in this field.
