    Soft computing deals with evolutionary and fuzzy computation. Here are the
    instructions to visit an on-line conference, perhaps a model of what Unrev
    folks should be doing.

    > Abstract
    > We have previously shown on a range of benchmarks
    > [Langdon,2001] Genetic programming (GP) can
    > automatically fuse given classifers of diverse types to
    > produce a combined classifer whose Receiver
    > Operating Characteristics (ROC) are better than
    > [scott:1998:BMVC]'s "Maximum Realisable Receiver
    > Operating Characteristics" (MRROC). I.e. better than
    > their convex hull. Here our technique is used in a blind
    > trial where artifcial neural networks. are trained by
    > Clementine on P450 pharmaceutical data. Using just the
    > networks GP automatically evolves a composite
    > classifer.
