He is notable as a researcher and popularizer of fuzzy logic, neural networks. 27 Feb 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. Fuzzy Thinking has ratings and 34 reviews. Ahmad said: Fuzzy Thinking: The New Science of Fuzzy Logic, Bart Koskoتاریخ نخستین خوانش: نهم جولای سال 1.

Jun 07, Meltha rated it it was ok Shelves: The concepts are presented clearly and precisely.

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”. Interesting approach to math and philosophy. 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.

However, this is also me. What is the fuzzy principle?

Quite eye opening when I first read it. Finally decided it didn’t need to be taking Fuzzy Logic, before the term got irretrievably co-opted to mean ‘putting an asterisk in a search string,’ or ‘assigning probability to an event,’ mea I haven’t read others’ opinions of this book; I have a suspicion it will have been ‘debunked’ by many reviews.

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. What is kind of amazing is that modern day neural networks often use a lot of what was presented here in The first antiscience science book, Fuzzy Thinking is a truly important book that can forever change the way you look at the world. It seems like the author made this idea up and is making a cottage industry thereon.


The New Science of Fuzzy Logic Bart Kosko HyperionJun 30, – Mathematics – pages 2 Reviews Fuzzy Thinking is the first popular book to explain clearly and provocatively how fuzzy logic is changing our lives – and how it will revolutionize the world in the decades ahead. 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.

Bah – now I feel dirty having got annoyed by this book! No eBook available Amazon. For example, when does life begin? Gets a up thumb from koako. This book took me 20 years to get around to reading. This page was last edited on 4 Novemberat Apr 25, Htinking rated it it was ok. 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, fhinking and the geometric view of finite fuzzy sets as points in hypercubes and its relationship to the ongoing debate of fuzziness versus probability.

At the time of birth? Kosko is a political and religious skeptic. Warum gibt es etwas und nicht vielmehr nichts?

So ist das mit dem fussy thinking. Other editions – View all Koso Thinking: To take an example, it’s not that we can’t say with confidence whether an apple is red or not.

Fuzzy logic, properly, is a framework for expressing that mathematically precisely as math insistsand modeling it in software. Return to Book Page. Thanks for telling us about the problem. This is more memoir than edifying. Jun 26, John Fuzy rated it really liked it.

Kosko suggests that in order to compete we in the West will have to open ourselves to new ways of thinking – fuzzy ways of thinking.

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.


For people who are interested to learn how fuzzy set theory is used in the social sciences, I would give Kosko’s book a skip and head straight to Charles Ragin’s Fuzzy-Set Social Science – an extremely enjoyable and illuminating read. Also, I felt the repeated comparisons between the Buddha and Aristotle seemed contrived. Ein Kosok parkt irgendwo auf dem Parkplatz aber nicht im Slot.

Besides, broadening math for its own sake is always valuable. Fuzzy logic isused in palmtop computers that recognize and translate handwritten characters.

Splendid introduction to fuzzy logic. But while reading his book i really liked to ask him to cool down. You’ll like it, if you like it, for all of the philosophy, not for the logical system he proposes: Don’t koosko how to explain but I learned a thing and two about it. That’s what it sounded like to me. Books by Bart Kosko. Oct 10, Thomas Whitney rated it liked it.

Fuzzy Thinking: The New Science of Fuzzy Logic

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 fzzy 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.

If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you. Undoubtedly, as a hyper-intellectual hippie sort of character, he decided he needed some pop-science publishing history to back up his academic credentials.
