'Fuzzy Logic' revolutionises problem-solving
Two Australian academics have edited a new book
that has the potential to dramatically change the way people look at information
Vladimir Dimitrov from the University of Western
Sydney and Victor Korotkich from Central Queensland University, have edited
'Fuzzy Logic: A Framework for the New Millennium' (Heidelberg and New York:
|Dr Dimitrov believes fuzzy
logic opens a "new challenging perspective in information processing".
"This perspective emerges out of the ideas of
the founder of fuzzy logic, Lotfi Zadeh, to develop 'soft' tools for direct
computing with human perceptions," he says.
The papers included in the book focus on the knowledge
and experience of the researchers in relation both to the engineering applications
of 'soft' (fuzz logic based) computing and to its social and philosophical
implications at the dawn of the third millennium..
new branch of human-centred research called social fuzziology has been
brought into life to respond to the multiple challenges of today's ever-accelerating
social complexity," Dr Dimitrov says
Fuzziology is the study of the sources, the nature
and the dynamics of uncertainty (fuzziness) inherent in human understanding
and dealing with complex systems, be they natural or artificial, real or
