Title: Advanced Computational Intelligence Methods-Design and Practical Applications

Abstract: The talk is focused on computational intelligence paradigms for designing intelligent systems.

Nowadays fuzzy logic is considered a good approach to solve control problems in a wide range of applications.

We are focused on the conception, development and implementation of a special family of fuzzy controllers, the fuzzy-interpolative systems. The designing methodology of these controllers is presented. It offers the advantages of the linguistic based representation of knowledge due to the fuzzy reasoning as well as a remarkable easiness of the implementations, when applying the look-up-table with linear interpolation implementations.

The presented case studies proved to be useful in a wide field of applications, especially in designing complex systems
