What is fuzzy thinking?What is fuzzy thinking? Experts rely on Experts rely on common sensecommon sense when they solve when they solve

problems. problems. How can we represent expert knowledge that How can we represent expert knowledge that

is used to describe fuzziness. Fuzzy logic is the is used to describe fuzziness. Fuzzy logic is the theory of fuzzy sets, sets that calibrate vagueness.theory of fuzzy sets, sets that calibrate vagueness.

Fuzzy logic is based on the idea that all things Fuzzy logic is based on the idea that all things admit of degrees. Temperature, height, speed, admit of degrees. Temperature, height, speed, distance, beauty distance, beauty all come on a sliding scale. The all come on a sliding scale. The motor is running motor is running really hotreally hot. Tom is a . Tom is a very tallvery tall guy.guy.

Boolean logic uses sharp distinctions. It forces us Boolean logic uses sharp distinctions. It forces us to draw lines between members of a class and nonto draw lines between members of a class and non-- members. For instance, we may say, Tom is tall members. For instance, we may say, Tom is tall because his height is 181 cm. If we drew a line at because his height is 181 cm. If we drew a line at 180 cm, we would find that David, who is 179 cm, 180 cm, we would find that David, who is 179 cm, is short. Is David really a short man or we have is short. Is David really a short man or we have just drawn an arbitrary line in the sand?just drawn an arbitrary line in the sand?

Fuzzy logic reflects how people think. It attempts Fuzzy logic reflects how people think. It attempts to model our sense of words, our decision making to model our sense of words, our decision making and our common sense. As a result, it is leading to and our common sense. As a result, it is leading to new, more human, intelligent systems.new, more human, intelligent systems.

In 1965 In 1965 LotfiLotfi ZadehZadeh, published his famous paper , published his famous paper “Fuzzy sets”. “Fuzzy sets”.

ZadehZadeh extended the work on possibility theory into extended the work on possibility theory into a formal system of mathematical logic, and a formal system of mathematical logic, and introduced a new concept for applying natural introduced a new concept for applying natural language terms. language terms.

This new logic for representing and manipulating This new logic for representing and manipulating fuzzy terms was called fuzzy terms was called fuzzy logicfuzzy logic, and , and ZadehZadeh became the became the Master/Father Master/Father of of fuzzy logicfuzzy logic..

Fuzziness rests on fuzzy set theory, and fuzzy logic Fuzziness rests on fuzzy set theory, and fuzzy logic is just a small part of that theory. is just a small part of that theory.

Fuzzy logic is a set of mathematical principles Fuzzy logic is a set of mathematical principles for knowledge representation based on degrees for knowledge representation based on degrees of membership of membership rather than on crisp membership of rather than on crisp membership of classical binary logicclassical binary logic..

Unlike twoUnlike two--valued Boolean logic, fuzzy logic is valued Boolean logic, fuzzy logic is multimulti--valuedvalued. It deals with . It deals with degrees of degrees of membershipmembership and and degrees of truthdegrees of truth. .

The classical example in fuzzy sets is The classical example in fuzzy sets is tall mentall men. The . The elements of the fuzzy set “tall men” are all men, elements of the fuzzy set “tall men” are all men, but their degrees of membership depend on their but their degrees of membership depend on their height. height.
