Soft Computing as its name implies is an evolutionary approach to produce intelligent system which do have human like expertise. The mind of human is incomparable to anything. Human mind does not work on hard and fast rules i. e. it behaves according to the situation. Soft Computing follows the same approach. It is a breakthrough in science and engineering fields as it can solve problems that have not been to be solved by conventional approaches. It yields rich knowledge which enable intelligent systems to be constructed at low cost. This remarkable idea of producing machines which behave like human minds comes to L. A. Zadeh in 1965 when he proposed the fuzzy sets. After this, enhancement towards this field never stops. These emerging ideas changed the whole world. Today we have microwave ovens and washing machines that can decide how to perform the tasks optimally. The main objective of this paper is to introduce about the latest trends in soft computing as well as hybrid computing to leverage the advantage of two or more than two models.
