John McCarthy coined the term Artificial Intelligence in the 1950s. From his point of view, AI is not about imitating human reasoning and the human way of solving problems, but about finding the essence of abstract reasoning and problem solving. At present, IA focuses on the study of intelligent agents, that is, of autonomous entities capable of perceiving their environment and which, like humans, have the capacity to act so as to optimize their objectives.
Soft computing is a branch of Artificial Intelligence that studies the techniques used in the resolution of problems that handle incomplete, uncertain, and/or inaccurate information. Fuzzy sets are fundamental in the theory of uncertainty. Fuzzy sets and soft computing provide numerous theoretical and practical tools for complex linguistic and numerical modeling applications.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to gather a collection of articles on the latest research and developments in this field of research which includes but is not limited to topics such as: automated reasoning and inference, heuristic search, natural language processing, applications in medical sciences and bioinformatics, knowledge representation, extensions and generalizations of fuzzy sets, aggregation operations, information content measures, preference modeling and multicriteria evaluation, and reasoning under uncertainty.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Mathematics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
