Traditional methods for creating intelligent computational systems haveprivileged private “internal” cognitive and computational processes. Incontrast, Swarm Intelligence argues that humanintelligence derives from the interactions of individuals in a social worldand further, that this model of intelligence can be effectively applied toartificially intelligent systems. The authors first present the foundations ofthis new approach through an extensive review of the critical literature insocial psychology, cognitive science, and evolutionary computation. Theythen show in detail how these theories and models apply to a newcomputational intelligence methodologyÑparticle swarmsÑwhich focuseson adaptation as the key behavior of intelligent systems. Drilling downstill further, the authors describe the practical benefits of applying particleswarm optimization to a range of engineering problems. Developed bythe authors, this algorithm is an extension of cellular automata andprovides a powerful optimization, learning, and problem solving method. This important book presents valuable new insights by exploring theboundaries shared by cognitive science, social psychology, artificial life,artificial intelligence, and evolutionary computation and by applying theseinsights to the solving of difficult engineering problems. Researchers andgraduate students in any of these disciplines will find the materialintriguing, provocative, and revealing as will the curious and savvycomputing professional.* Places particle swarms within the larger context of intelligentadaptive behavior and evolutionary computation. * Describes recent results of experiments with the particle swarmoptimization (PSO) algorithm * Includes a basic overview of statistics to ensure readers canproperly analyze the results of their own experiments using thealgorithm. * Support software which can be downloaded from the publisherswebsite, includes a Java PSO applet, C and Visual Basic sourcecode.

This is a great price for the book in electronic format. I paid more through Google books, and was only given single page by page view access only and they didn’t advertise it as that. So not cool.
Wish I would have found this sooner..
Thanks again this is awesome and is a great deal!!!!!

After not being able to find the book for free ANYWHERE I had to result to purchasing online. The price for the online book on this website was cheaper than any others, and I was suspicious I would be scammed because of that. I decided to trust the reviews and purchased. Got the download I was promised in full! Thank you for not breaking the bank for this college student <3

THANK YOU. Upon cursory examination, I am thrilled with the book. You people are great. Now I don’t have to type out everything — and it is very readable. I am so glad I cancelled my other order — book was very costly — and was going to take 3 weeks to get. Yet here you are, and you gave it to me quickly, conveniently — “right now!” WOW. I will certainly remember you. Thank you so much.

I found this site and I was going to purchase the book when I saw the program to get it for free. I copy the link, email all my classmates on canvas, took a screen picture, and sent it to them, next morning I received the code and I applied to the cart and I got my pdf download. It’s real and the pdf is real and it works, all pages opened. Thank you so much!!!
