Computational intelligence methods provide mechanisms by which human expertise and learning can be embedded and implemented to solve problems, provide assessment of process performance from input data, and provide control. The use of sophisticated analytical techniques to monitor quality and processes in many manufacturing environments is becoming well established. In particular, soft computing concepts coupled with developments in real-time measurement of biological parameters are now allowing significant progress to be made in the historically challenging food and beverage industries. This chapter discusses specific developments which engage these technologies within a brewery.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
