Abstract: In the last years various computational intelligence (CI) techniques have been proposed by the researchers in order to develop efficient biomedical knowledge-based systems. CI offers a robust intelligent algorithms and smart methods that can help solving problems in a variety of medical and bioinformatics domains. This paper presents some of the CI paradigms and approaches for developing bio-medical knowledge-based systems. The paper covers the following CI techniques: (a) case-based reasoning; (b) intelligent data mining; (c) rough sets; (d) genetic algorithms; and (e) ontological engineering. Examples of the research performed by the author and his associates for developing knowledge-based systems for cancer, heart, brain tumor, thrombosis diseases as well as protein structure and human gene are discussed.
