For a considerable period of time, the goal of the computational intelligence research community has been the creation of an artificial system with the ability to leam for itself in a manner that replicates to some degree, the natural intelligence of the human brain. The development of the integrated circuit (IC), and the accompanying genesis of the modem day computer in the 1960s, was perhaps seen as a significant advancement towards this objective. However, whilst technology has progressed at an extraordinary rate, the fundamental issue is that it is very difficult to develop truly intelligent systems, irrespective of the vast number of computations that can be performed per second.
