Retrieved from ” https: Japanese and Korean companies already apply fuzzy technology to the tune of billions of dollars a year in such hhinking as air conditioners instead of producing an all-or-nothing blast of cold air, fuzzy air conditioners htinking 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.
But while reading his book i really liked to ask him to cool down. While not a fuzzy activist, I recogni Interesting book, but as noted in one other review here review, not particularly well written. This guy decided to stay in the academic trenches and bleat about how much more mature he is than the old school, while carrying on with all the nasty academic in-fighting crap he supposedly looks down upon.
Return to Book Page. Many apples really are kind of red. What is the fuzzy principle? Sure, he gets a bit woo-ey near the end, 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.
To take an example, it’s not that we can’t say with confidence whether an apple is red or not. Oct 23, Kurt Schwind rated it it was amazing. Kosko has a minimalist prose style, not even using commas in his several books.
Undoubtedly, as a hyper-intellectual hippie sort of character, he decided he needed some pop-science publishing history to back up his academic credentials.
There are islands of interesting bits in a sea of mundane text. No trivia or quizzes yet. Dec 08, Badger rated it did not like it Shelves: As a professional I would have a lot more respect if he fuzzzy gone out and commercialised it straight away.
As a person with a postgraduate research degree I respect a DE or DSc a lot more than multiple PhDs which, if you have the discipline to nut out problem, are a matter of time, financial backing and access to the academic publishing world, rather than a show of superior skill. I tried for years to get into this book. Sep 07, Peter rated it liked it. Isn’t that a lot like Kosko’s technical contributions have been in three main areas: The Whole in the Part.

Kosko thinks it should and thinks he also knows how. Jan 21, Mohammad rated it it fizzy amazing Shelves: Aug 12, Rohit Shinde rated it it was ok Shelves: I found myself skimming the later chapters just to read the quotes Kosko included.
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. But I think the author could have done a better job of arranging the text in a more interesting manner.
Curious about the future, Kosko says that he’ll opt for freezing at death. He is a contributing editor of the libertarian periodical Libertywhere he has published essays on “Palestinian vouchers”. This book took me 20 years to get around to reading. Still, for all the self-indulgence, probably the best primer around for learning what FL koxko all about, certainly cuts above Daniel McNeill and Paul Freiberger’s Fuzzy Logic p.
For a math book this was actually pretty accessible.
There is a superficial introduction to fuzzy theory as well. But modern western logic does not appreciate the gray. He’s also good in extending these ideas to neural nets in hypothesizing how brains change, learn, get smart. 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.
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. He could certainly have done with less comparisons. The first antiscience science book, Fuzzy Thinking is a truly important book that can forever change the way you look at the world.
