Artificial Intelligence techniques have been used more and more in various research areas during these last two decades. The use of these techniques permitted researchers to find smart and useful solutions for a lot of problems, especially in Computer Graphics and Image Processing. Several Artificial Intelligence techniques are nowadays used in these areas, such as neural networks, genetic algorithms, constraint satisfaction techniques, heuristic search, fuzzy logic, and many others.
Five years ago, I wrote a book on improvements of Computer Graphics techniques based on the use of various Artificial Intelligence methods, and I am very happy to see that Prof. Marina Gavrilova decided to write this book from the point of view of intelligent Image Processing. For several years, I have known and appreciated Prof. Gavrilova’s research work, and I think that she is the most qualified person for writing such an important and useful book.

Gavrilova (computer science, U. of Calgary, Canada) and Monwar (electrical and computer engineering, Carnegie Mellon U., US) introduce the biometric methodology and general directions of research conducted by members of the Biometric Technologies, Laboratory, established at the University of Calgary in 2001. They also survey applications in security systems. Among their topics are an overview of biometrics and biometrics systems, multi-modal biometric systems and information fusion, Markov chain for multi-modal biometric rank fusion, robotics, chaotic neural networks, and novel applications such as gait analysis and social networks.
