The Importance of Being Fuzzy By using fuzzy logic and related concepts, programmers have been able to sidestep the traditional and often cumbersome search for perfect mathematical solutions to embrace instead solutions that are good enough. If mathematicians want their work to be relevant to the problems of the modern world, Sangalli shows, they must increasingly recognize the importance of being fuzzy.As Sangalli explains, fuzzy logic is a technique that allows computers to work with imprecise terms--to answer question

DESCRIPTION:

The Importance of Being Fuzzy is clear and easy to read, and yet it provides enough mathematical detail to give some appreciation for the meaning behind the metaphors."--Mark Johnson, The Mathematical Association of America Online Book Review. The book presents an excellent, clear written, and easy-to-understand advertisement for fuzzy computing."--H. Winner of the 1998 Award for Best Professional/Scholarly Book in Computer Science, Association of American Publishers"I know quite a few books on the fuzzy set theory and neuro-fuzzy systems, but this work is unique. Toth, Computing Reviews"Sangalli's goal is to describe this recent work to a broad audience; he succeeds quite admirably. No other book have I found so pleasant to read and, at the same time, no other book seems so informative for the fuzzy or soft computing newco

By using fuzzy logic and related concepts, programmers have been able to sidestep the traditional and often cumbersome search for perfect mathematical solutions to embrace instead solutions that are "good enough." If mathematicians want their work to be relevant to the problems of the modern world, Sangalli shows, they must increasingly recognize "the importance of being fuzzy."As Sangalli explains, fuzzy logic is a technique that allows computers to work with imprecise terms--to answer questions with "maybe" rather than just "yes" and "no." The practical implications of this flexible type of mathematical thinking are remarkable. Similar techniques have been used in fields as diverse as medical diagnosis, image understanding by robots, the engineering of automatic transmissions, and the forecasting of currency exchange rates. He shows us how "genetic algorithms" can solve problems by an evolutionary process in which cha

Wonderful After floundering trying to understand abstract computer science issues such as computability, NP-complete, Turing machines, with very basic math skills, I came across this book. I thought it would just introduce concepts of fuzzy logic, neural nets, and genetic programming. Pleasantly surprised that, in doing the above, the fundamental concepts are quite lucidly explained. A real mathematician wo. Great intro to fuzzy logic, computability, neural nets, & GA After reading this book, I would echo the mostly positive reviews of this book offered by others below. As noted by others, *The Importance of Being Fuzzy* is an accessible intro to fuzzy logic, issues surrounding the limitations of computability (Godel/Turing/NP-completeness), neural networks, and genetic algorithms.Arturo Sangalli tries to give just enough of a taste of the technical details of . Where Fuzzy is Clear If you want to find out how a computer works, you won't get much help by taking a look under the cover. What you see is a floor of chips, a maze of wires and a little fan to keep things cool - not a pretty sight, but then neither is the box itself. When Steve Jobs decided to colour his iMACs and use transparent perspex so that we can see the innards, he was responding to this drab ugliness with a
