Publisher Comments:

Economic Modeling Using Artificial Intelligence Methods examines the application of artificial intelligence methods to model economic data. Traditionally, economic modeling has been modeled in the linear domain where the principles of superposition are valid. The application of artificial intelligence for economic modeling allows for a flexible multi-order non-linear modeling. In addition, game theory has largely been applied in economic modeling. However, the inherent limitation of game theory when dealing with many player games encourages the use of multi-agent systems for modeling economic phenomena. The artificial intelligence techniques used to model economic data include: multi-layer perceptron neural networksradial basis functionssupport vector machinesrough setsgenetic algorithmparticle swarm optimizationsimulated annealingmulti-agent systemincremental learningfuzzy networksSignal processing techniques are explored to analyze economic data, and these techniques are the time domain methods, time-frequency domain methods and fractals dimension approaches. Interesting economic problems such as causality versus correlation, simulating the stock market, modeling and controling inflation, option pricing, modeling economic growth as well as portfolio optimization are examined. The relationship between economic dependency and interstate conflict is explored, and knowledge on how economics is useful to foster peace - and vice versa - is investigated. Economic Modeling Using Artificial Intelligence Methods deals with the issue of causality in the non-linear domain and applies the automatic relevance determination, the evidence framework, Bayesian approach and Granger causality to understand causality and correlation. Economic Modeling Using Artificial Intelligence Methods makes an important contribution to the area of econometrics, and is a valuable source of reference for graduate students, researchers and financial practitioners.

Synopsis:

This book examines the application of artificial intelligence methods to model economic data. It addresses causality and proposes new frameworks for dealing with this issue. It also applies evolutionary computing to model evolving economic environments.

About the Author

Tshilidzi Marwala, born in Venda (Limpopo, South Africa), is the Dean of Engineering at the University of Johannesburg. He is a senior member of the IEEE and distinguished member of the ACM. He is the youngest recipient of the Order of Mapungubwe and was awarded the President Award by the National Research Foundation. His research interests include the applications of computational intelligence to engineering, computer science, finance, social science and medicine. In addition to Economic Modeling Using Artificial Intelligence Methods, he has previously published 3 books with Springer: Condition Monitoring Using Computational Intelligence Methods (2012), Militarized Conflict Modeling Using Computational Intelligence Techniques (2011); and Finite Element Model Updating Using Computational Intelligence Techniques (2010).
