AI or Artificial Intelligence is a science which deals with making machine intelligence. It utilizes image processing, cognitive science, neural systems, machine learning, etc. AI enables machines to behave in a similar manner as human behaves in varying situations.
Soft computing is a computing model evolved to solve non-linear issues. It helps to solve issues where human intelligence is needed to solve. Probabilistic models, fuzzy logic, neural networks, evolutionary algorithms are part of soft computing.
The following are some of the important differences between AI and Soft Computing.
