Scope
In the recent times, the behavior monitoring has become harder due to the rapidly increasing data induction from the electronic smart devices. With growth of internet and technologies, the data has become humongous even when it is originated from the single source. Hence, when the data is originated from various heterogeneous sources in a distributed global scenario the data processing gets more complicated due to the magnitude of data. The soft computing techniques and machine learning have become standard in providing promising solutions to the processing, prediction and visualizing the data received from the Internet of Things. Soft computing techniques can bring the opportunity of predicting any misfortune even before they happen.Recently, a meaningful development has been reported in the field of risk and behavioral monitoring. These achievements are mostly based on ICT techniques, such as body area networking, human assisted rehabilitation, and remote diagnosis. However, risk and behavioral monitoring (for example, integrating health services) with the existent communication method and providing remote medical treatments with accuracy and precision is still challenging task. To this end, the new soft computing based decision-making approaches that comprehend the research findings from the fuzzy and rough sets theory, neural networks, genetic algorithm, and artificial intelligence are actively developing. The aim of this special issue is to explore new technologies, methodologies, and applications that relate to all aspects of soft computing techniques with the focus to healthcare. Contributions may come from diverse fields engineering and healthcare, and the guest editors invite original and high-quality submissions addressing all aspects of this field, as long as the connection to the focus topic is clear and emphasized.
