Referring to various definitions, we first examine the identity issue of intelligent control and, have tried to explain the nature and attributes of intelligent control in terms of two categories of positions, that is, the Noumenalist's position and the Phenomenologist's position. And then, we give detailed descriptions for (1) FUZZY-based intelligent control and (2) learning control. Finally, as a noticeable new technique of intelligent control for robotic applications, we present (3) Cognitive control.
