Soft computing (SC) is a combination of methodologies which provide for the conception, design and deployment of intelligent systems. The principal complementary members of SC are: fuzzy logic (FL); neurocomputing (NC); genetic computing (GC); and probabilistic computing (PC). FL provides a methodology for dealing with imprecision, approximate reasoning, fuzzy information granulation, and computing with words. The NC presents system identification, learning and adaptation. The PC provides decision analysis and management of uncertainty. The GC supplies systematized random research, tuning and optimization. Soft computing is aimed at an accommodation with the pervasive imprecisions of the real world.
