Part of the Advances in Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 19)


The paper deals with agent-based architectures of hybrid soft-computing systems, which should exhibit intelligent behaviour at a population level. Three levels of complexity of such systems are distinguished together with their potential advantages. The considerations are illustrated by prototypical realisations of evolutionary multi-agent systems dedicated to multiobjective optimisation, data classification, and time-series prediction.
