Soft Computing introduces a set of Artificial Intelligence computational techniques which are based on the emulation of biological processes.
In particular, we will introduce neural networks mimicking human brain skills to learn and generalize, evolutionary computation mimicking adaptation of biological species to their own environment, and swarm intelligence based on the model of intelligent cooperative behavior of some animals. A specific computer exercise, in MATLAB environment, is foreseen for each topic.
The lectures will be held in person.
The general objective of the module is to provide students with computational techniques, based on the emulation of successfull biological processes, for the solution of classification, clustering, optimization and forecasting problems. In particular, specific objectives are aimed at the acquisition of knowledge and skills in the field of:
All topics are addressed in a self-consistent manner
The module includes lectures and three computer exercises
Lectures notes will be provided
Anna Maria MASSONE (President)
In accordance with the academic calendar approved by the Consiglio di Corso di Studi.
All class schedules are posted on the EasyAcademy portal.
Three computer exercises will take place for which deadlines will be set. Positive assessment will be required for admission to a final oral exam
Computer exercises are aimed at testing the practical skills acquired for the solution of the posed problems. They will be evaluated on the basis of the following criteria:
The oral exam is finally aimed at assessing the ability to communicate the knowledge acquired in a clear and competent manner
Students with DSA certification ("specific learning disabilities"), disability or other special educational needs are advised to contact the teacher at the beginning of the course to agree on teaching and examination methods that, in compliance with the teaching objectives, take account of individual learning arrangements and provide appropriate compensatory tools.
