About the Course

Course objectives: This course is designed to provide an exposure on Soft Computing Algorithms. Soft Computing algorithms are playing vital role to approximate the solution of many NP Hard problems. The field is getting popularity day-by-day. Hence, a course is needed which can train the faculties in this area so that many more applications can be explored with the help of evolutionary algorithms. Participants will learn basics of different evolutionary algorithms and their application in different engineering areas. The aim of this FDP is to introduce faculty and student to learn these soft computing techniques in an efficient way. This programme will provide hands-on experience to participants through various examples and assignments.
Course Contents:
Module 1: Complexity Theory, Optimization Problems, Introduction to Soft Computing
Module 2: Evolutionary Algorithms for Optimization
Module 3: Nature Inspired Algorithms for Optimization
Module 4: Research problems and Applications of Soft Computing
Topics to be covered will have range of applications of evolutionary algorithms from different engineering streams. Some of them are listed below but not limited to:
1. Image Processing
2. Signal Processing
3. Filter Design
4. Speech Processing
5. Data Mining
6. Biomedical signals
7. Fractional Derivatives in Soft Computing
