The book deals with several key aspects of developing technologies in information processing systems. It explains various problems related to advanced image processing systems and describes some of the latest state-of-the-art techniques in solving them. Particularly, the recent advances in image and video processing are covered thoroughly with real-life applications. Some of the latest topics like rough fuzzy hybridization and knowledge reuse in computational intelligence are included adequately.
