# Biologically inspired algorithms

- Biologically inspired algorithms
**Biologically inspired algorithms** is a category of algorithms that imitate the way nature performs. This category has been quite popular, since numerous problems can be solved without rigorous mathematical approaches.Fact|date=January 2008

In this category of algorithms fall:

*Artificial neural networks

*Genetic algorithms

*Fuzzy logic

*and others
