To introduce the techniques of soft computing and adaptive neuro-fuzzy inferencing systems which differ from conventional AI and computing in terms of its tolerance to imprecision and uncertainty.

•    To introduce the ideas of fuzzy sets, fuzzy logic and use of heuristics based on human experience
•    To become familiar with neural networks that can learn from available examples and generalize to form appropriate rules for inferencing systems
•    To provide the mathematical background for carrying out the optimization associated with neural network learning
•    To familiarize with genetic algorithms and other random search procedures useful while seeking global optimum in self-learning situations
•    To introduce case studies utilizing the above and illustrate the
intelligent behavior of programs based on soft computing
