Hard boundaries have traditionally existed between such fields as fuzzy systems, neural networks, genetic algorithms, chaotic systems and expert systems. Gradually those boundaries are tending to vanish and "soft computing"-based systems that mix these different approaches have begun to emerge.

Soft Computing Techniques in Human-Related Sciences focuses on the use of novel techniques such as artificial neural networks, fuzzy logic and genetic algorithms to solve practical problems related to humans: their activities, health and social needs.

This volume illustrates and presents in an organized manner some of the recent progress in the applications of soft computing to fields related to social science, medical science, psychology, psychiatry , management of health and community services, and humanoid robots.

Soft Computing Techniques in Human-Related Sciences begins with an introductory chapter to aid newcomers with the basic concepts, and progresses to the methodology of the use of soft computing in robotics, prosthetics, medicine, psycchology and man-machine interaction.
