It’s very interesting book.

For a math book this was actually pretty accessible. 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] thinkinb the geometric view of finite fuzzy sets as points in hypercubes and its relationship to the ongoing debate of fuzziness versus probability.

So ist das mit dem fussy thinking. Aug 12, Rohit Shinde rated it it was ok Shelves: But while reading his book i really liked to ask him to cool down.

Jul 19, bup rated it it was amazing. Read, highlight, and take notes, across web, tablet, and phone. Most of the book is a lengthy, lame, boring and fuzzy introduction to the concept of fuzziness.

I haven’t read others’ opinions of this book; I have a suspicion it will have been ‘debunked’ by many reviews. 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. 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.


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.

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.

Jan 21, Mohammad rated it it was amazing Shelves: What is kind of amazing is that modern day neural networks often use a lot of what was presented here in He is a contributing editor of the libertarian periodical Libertywhere he has published essays on “Palestinian vouchers”.

You’ll like it, if you like it, for all of the philosophy, not for the logical system he proposes: While not a fuzzy activist, I recogni Interesting book, but as noted in one other review here review, not particularly well written.

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. He is an attorney licensed in California and federal court, and worked part-time as a law clerk for the Los Angeles District Attorney ‘s Office.

Mar 20, Wendy Yu is currently reading it. Oct 10, Thomas Whitney rated it liked it. Give it a pass.

Rereading a gift from my high school math teacher! Everything is a matter of degree – nothing is absolute. Es ist ein Unterschied, sehe ich ein, ob man einer Aussage eine Wahrscheinlichkeit zuspricht oder fuzziness. That’s what it sounded like to me.


Ein Auto parkt irgendwo auf dem Parkplatz aber nicht im Slot. Many apples really are kind of red.

A waste of time. But modern western logic does not appreciate the gray. Gets a up thumb from me. To see what your friends thought of this book, please kos,o up. Its the singer, not the song Apr 25, Cameron rated it it was ok. Feb 17, James rated it liked it. Thanks for telling us about the problem. What is the fuzzy principle? It was certainly informative. Fights break out when some person or some group or some government 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.

Trivia About Fuzzy Thinking: Unfortunately, “fuzzy logic” was oversimplified thinoing the collective consciousness, and then was dismissed as nothing more than probability. Oct 27, Hollis Thimking marked it as to-read Shelves: Fuzzy logic isused in palmtop computers that recognize and translate handwritten characters. Kosko’s technical contributions have been in three main areas: Jun 07, Meltha rated it it was ok Shelves: Besides, broadening math for its own sake is always valuable.

In fact, you’d say he’s some kind of polymath, throwing maths and philosophy fuzsy the page in wild, untrammelled abandon.
