Title: Computational Intelligence for Industrial and Environmental Applications


Abstract: Adaptability and advanced services for industrial manufacturing require an intelligent technological support for understanding the production process characteristics also in complex situations. Quality control is specifically one of the activities in manufacturing which is very critical for ensuring high-quality products and competitiveness on the market.

Similarly, protection of the environment requires ability to adjust the understanding of the current status by considering the natural dynamics of the environment itself and the natural phenomena.

Computational intelligence can provide additional flexible techniques for designing and implementing monitoring and control systems both for industrial and environmental applications, which can be configured from behavioral examples or by mimicking approximate reasoning processes to achieve adaptable systems.

This talk will analyze the opportunities offered by computational intelligence technologies to support the realization of adaptable operations and intelligent services in industrial applications, specifically focusing on manufacturing processes and quality control, as well as in environmental monitoring, especially for land management and agriculture.
