Course Objectives: The course is designed to provide comprehensive knowledge and training on soft computing starting from basics to the emerging techniques and their applications. Optimization is an important aspect of solution design for problems in science, engineering and social sciences. The present course aims at providing theoretical knowledge and hands-on training on optimization through fundamental and advanced soft computing approaches such as Fuzzy Logic, Genetic Algorithms, Particle Swarm Optimization, and Deep Neural Networks. In the lab sessions participant will be exposed to programming skills for using soft computing techniques in MATLAB\Python.
The course outcome is envisioned as enhancement of knowledge-base on optimization techniques and confidence-building among faculty members in using soft computing approaches for optimization problems in different application domains. After successfully completing the course, the participants will be able to apply these techniques and suitably train the algorithms for optimized performance.

Course contents:The course aims to provide comprehensive exposure to Soft Computing Techniques in Optimization. The topics include:

  • Fuzzy Logic and Applications
  • ANN and Advances in Deep Neural Networks
  • Evolutionary Algorithms and their Applications
  • Swarm Intelligent Systems and Applications
  • Case Studies and Emerging Optimization Techniques
  • Algorithm Programming for different applications in MATLAB\Python

Who can attend: Programme is open to faculty from all colleges and universities preferably from the states of Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Maharashtra. Faculty members from other states are also eligible. Industry personnel working in the concerned/allied discipline may also apply. Limited seats are available for research scholars.
