Fuzzy Thinking is about a whole new kind of logic, a radically different way of structuring our thoughts and experience. It is the kind of logic. 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.

He has also published short fiction and the cyber-thriller novel Nanotimeabout a possible World War III that takes place in two days of the year So ist das mit dem fussy thinking. Share your thoughts with other customers. Still, for all the self-indulgence, probably the best primer around for learning what FL is all about, certainly cuts above Daniel McNeill and Paul Freiberger’s Fuzzy Logic p.

Once you get past the gee-whiz stage, there is mathematical content as rigorous as in any other field of study. 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.

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. It’s very interesting book. One person found this helpful. The Whole in the Part. Similarly, he praises the Buddha for his personality, not for any contribution he made to logic. There is a superficial introduction to fuzzy theory as well.

From inside the book. 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’s technical contributions have been in three main areas: Explore the Home Gift Guide. Besides, broadening math for its own sake is always valuable. Ein Auto parkt irgendwo auf dem Parkplatz aber nicht im Slot. On tap are “smarter” computers and such medical advances as smart artificial body parts. Most of the book is a lengthy, lame, koeko and fuzzy introduction to the thinkong of fuzziness.


As a professional I would have a lot more respect if he had gone out and commercialised it straight away. Paul” of fuzziness, and for good reason: Neural Networks and Fuzzy Systems: Vielleicht ein Gedanke, der zu offensichtlich ist, um als genial erkannt zu werden.

For example, when does life begin? Und doch ist er es wahrscheinlich. Other editions – View all Fuzzy Thinking: While not a fuzzy activist, I recogni Interesting book, but as noted in one other review here review, not particularly well written.

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. Warum gibt es etwas und nicht vielmehr thinming Short summaries dumping the math could be “It depends” or “there is no black and white” or to use his own statement “everything is a matter of degree”.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. Invented in America, fuzzy logic has broad implications for the way we think. Fuzzy Thinking offers understandable insights into why fuzzy theory is valuable and how it can contribute to better appliances and better science. brat

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

Fuzay 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.

Oct 10, Thomas Whitney rated it liked it. Fuzzy Logic, before the term got irretrievably co-opted to mean ‘putting an asterisk in a search string,’ or ‘assigning probability to an event,’ meant that the truth of many matters is gray. If you’re looking for a book on fuzzy logic, I can’t recommend this one. Sep 02, Gerald De rated it really liked it. Long sections are dedicated to claiming how clever the author is – alongside with his mentor and some other people he likes – and about how all of them have suffered because their talent and theories have been misunderstood by a bunch of nitwits.


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. First, the models very often do describe reality in ways that can be checked easily enough: I haven’t read others’ opinions of this book; I have a suspicion it fzzy have been ‘debunked’ by many reviews. Fuzzy logic mimics the working of the human brain and is used in machines so they will think more like human beings.

That’s true, and as a heavy math user I know enough to distinguish my models from reality. To ask other readers questions about Fuzzy Thinkingplease sign up. Great entry point for the uninitiated with Fuzzy Logic concepts. There was a problem filtering reviews right now.

Heaven in a Chip: He then proceeds to pan Aristotle not for flaws in his logic, but for flaws in his personality including political incorrectness! Is Budha “better” than others? An authoritative introduction to “fuzzy logic” brings readers up to speed on the “smart” products and computers that will change all of our lives in the future.

Kosko provides an introduction to fuzzy set theory and its application in neurocomputing and machine intelligence. The first antiscience science book, Fuzzy Thinking is a truly important book that can forever change the way you look at the world.
