Soft computing

Soft computing has experienced major advances in actuator and sensor technology, computing technology, and the emergence of a collection of new tools that can solve problems in an unconventional yet effective way:

Other soft computing techniques such as DNA computing and simulated annealing are also very intriguing. Our research finds ways to apply these tools to problems such as the control of a magneto-hydrodynamic power generators for hypersonic aircraft, and the evolution of a robot's rule base for obstacle avoidance and target acquisition.
