Because the new world of fuzzy logic more closely mirrors reality, has a rigor all its own, and is paying off in the marketplace. Kosko (Electrical. Fuzzy Thinking has ratings and 34 reviews.

Unfortunately, he decided to make up a subject, and even after he did that, he forgot to stick to it. Fuzzy Logic challenges the old way of thinking. In neural networks, Kosko introduced the unsupervised technique of differential Hebbian learning[11] sometimes called the “differential synapse,” and most famously the BAM or bidirectional associative memory [12] family of feedback neural architectures, with corresponding global stability theorems.

Ein Auto parkt irgendwo auf dem Parkplatz aber nicht im Slot. Hyperion; Reprint edition June 1, Language: Most of the book is a lengthy, lame, boring and fuzzy introduction to the concept of fuzziness. The Whole in the Part.

Hardcoverpages. As a Taoist I find his behaviour truly humane, bordering on etiquette boom boom – a Taoist insult and his lip service to the “void” philosophies irritating. Consequently Western scientists have largely resisted fuzzy logic. I am interested in reading more about fuzzy logic so that I can formally use it in future problem solving but will take the hard text books rather than this “impress the masses” self-promotion pop-science book.


This book took me 20 years to get around to reading.

Japanese and Korean companies already apply fuzzy technology to the tune of billions of dollars a year in such products as air conditioners instead of producing an all-or-nothing blast of cold air, fuzzy air conditioners constantly adjust to the precise temperature in the room and emit a corresponding degree of cooling air ; computers; cameras and camcorders; auto engines, brakes, transmissions, and cruise controls; dishwashers; elevators; washing machines and dryers; microwave ovens; and televisions.

On tap are “smarter” computers and such medical advances as smart artificial body parts. In this chapter Kosko puts Aristotle forward as a champion of bivalent logic which he wasand the Buddha as a champion of fuzzy logic a dubious claim.

A washing machine that gauges each load to determine how much soap to use An air conditioner that constantly adjusts cooling strength based on room temperature These “smart” products are possible with the advent of “fuzzy logic, ” the principle that’s revolutionizing science. But I think the author could have done a better job of arranging the text in a more interesting manner. As near as I could tell, this chapter was completely irrelevant, and I feel that the editor was negligent is his duties for having allowed this chapter into the book at all.


Very good intro to fuzzy logic. So it is with many, many things in the real world. Kosko’s technical contributions have been in three main areas: One person found this helpful. Aug 12, Rohit Shinde rated it it was ok Shelves: AmazonGlobal Ship Orders Internationally.

That’s fine, I can get along with that quite well.

Give it a pass. Bart Kosko is an expert at Fuzzy Engineering, and when he writes about it, he has a lot to teach.
