Fuzzy Thinking: The New Science of Fuzzy Logic by Bart Kosko

Contents Shades of Fzzy. Kosko’s most popular book to date was the international best-seller Fuzzy Thinkingabout man and machines thinking in shades of gray, and his most recent book was Noise. Fuzzy logic even applies to ethical questions. Jun 26, John Towery rated it really liked it.

The novel’s title coins the term “nanotime” to describe the time speed-up that occurs when fast computer chips, rather than slow brains, house minds. Fuzzy logic isused in palmtop computers that recognize and translate handwritten characters. This book took me 20 years to get around to reading. The Whole in the Part. Refresh and try again.

May 17, Serkelion rated it it was amazing. A waste of time.

In fact, you’d say he’s some kind of polymath, throwing maths and philosophy at the page in wild, untrammelled abandon. Unfortunately, “fuzzy logic” was oversimplified in the collective consciousness, and thinikng was dismissed as nothing more than thinkign.


That’s what it sounded like to me. On tap are “smarter” computers and such medical advances as smart artificial body parts. He proved many versions of the so-called “forbidden interval theorem,” which guarantees that noise will benefit a system if the average level of noise does not fall in an interval of values.

Vielleicht ein Gedanke, der zu offensichtlich ist, um als genial erkannt zu werden. Mar 20, Wendy Yu is currently reading it. I sold my copy of the book. From inside the book. He is writing with lots of enthusiasm. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. To ask other readers questions about Fuzzy Thinkingplease sign up.

In fuzzy logic, he introduced fuzzy cognitive maps[3] [4] fuzzy subsethood, [5] additive fuzzy systems, [6] fuzzy approximation theorems, [7] optimal fuzzy rules, [8] fuzzy associative memories, various neural-based adaptive fuzzy systems, [6] ratio measures of fuzziness, [5] the shape of fuzzy sets, [9] the conditional variance of fuzzy systems, [10] and the geometric view of finite fuzzy sets as points in hypercubes and its relationship to the ongoing debate of fuzziness versus probability.

Fights break out when some person or some group or some yhinking tries to round us off their way, tries to make us all A or all not-A, tries to turn our fits to bits and squash our fuzziness.

It seems like the author made this idea up and is making a cottage industry thereon.

When the fetus is six months old? It’s very interesting book.

Apr 25, Cameron fuazy it it was ok. Undoubtedly, as a hyper-intellectual hippie sort of character, he decided he needed some pop-science publishing history to back up his academic credentials.


See 1 question about Fuzzy Thinking…. Some decent ideas in this book, but they get overshadowed by the author’s Promethean comparison of how his colleagues and he brought the fire of fuzzy logic to the temples of Aristotelean logic. In noiseKosko introduced the concept of adaptive stochastic resonance[13] using neural-like learning algorithms to find the optimal level of noise to add to many nonlinear systems to improve their performance.

He is notable as a researcher and popularizer of fuzzy logicneural networksand noise, and author of several trade books and textbooks on these and related subjects of machine intelligence.

There are islands of interesting bits in a sea of mundane text. Very good intro to fuzzy logic. You can find better ones for free on the net. Sure, he gets a bit woo-ey near the brat, but the content is too important to let that get in the way of reading this book and understanding what Fuzzy Logic has to offer not just technology, but alsosay, the justice system.

Bart Kosko, a professor of electrical engineering at USC, holds degrees in law, philosophy, economics, mathematics, and engineering, and is the author of “Fuzzy Thinking, Heaven in a Chip, Nanotime,” and several textbooks. Give it a pass. There is a superficial introduction to fuzzy theory tuzzy well.
