Executive Summary

Computational Intelligence (CI) algorithms, such as those developed by the University of Pretoria, South Africa, require a lot of computing resource to complete simulation and development in reasonable time. In an environment with many students, where each student's workloads can take days to complete, managing workloads and resources can become a full-time challenge. Cloud Computing dynamically provisions, configures, reconfigures, and deprovisions resources as required.
