Abstract

In this chapter we review the history of mathematics-based approaches to problem solving. The authors suggest that while the ability of analysts to deal with the extremes of data now available is leading to a new leap in the handling of data analysis, information processing, and control systems, that ability remains grounded in the work of early pioneers of statistical thought. Beginning with pre-history, the paper briefly traces developments in analytical thought to the present day, identifying milestones in this development. The techniques developed in studies of computational intelligence, the applications of which are presented in this volume, form the basis for the next great development in analytical thought.
