Objectives and Learning outcomes of the Course Unit Granular computing offers a framework of theories, methodologies and tools that allows the use of information granules in the process of problem solving. This course offers a broad introduction to Granular Computing placing the emphasis on its applicability to real world problems. Students should be able to:
- Formulate problems in granular computing.
- Assess the strengths and weaknesses of several approaches to granular computing.
- Assess and understand the key commonalities, synergies and differences in various granular computing approaches.
- Apply granular computing techniques to problems such as data mining, automatic control, and image processing.
