This chapter is a survey of CI and indicates the Simulation Mechanism-Based (SMB) classification method for Computational Intelligence through reviewing on the definitions of CI and existed classification methods. The classification method divides all CI branches into three categories: organic mechanism simulation class, inorganic mechanism simulation class and artificial mechanism simulation class. Furthermore, branches in organic mechanism simulation class are introduced in detail, by which the chapter concludes the nonlinear mapping model for each class. The work presented in this chapter will provide an efficient approach to understand essence of CI.

Definitions Of Ci

From birth of CI in 1992, there are plenty of definitions about Computational Intelligence. But there isn't a uniform definition. In the following section, we summarize various definitions about CI. Finally, a wide-covered definition is given.
