You can find better ones for free on the net. Kosko’s technical contributions have been in three main areas: To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Invented in America, fuzzy fuzz has broad implications for the way we think.
In this mind-bending book, Kosko argues that for centuries the West has been locked into the concept of black or white, right or wrong, all or nothing. Some decent ideas in this book, but they get overshadowed by the author’s Promethean comparison of how his colleagues and he brought the fire of fuzzy logic to the temples of Aristotelean logic.
My library Help Advanced Book Search. Account Options Sign in. In neural networks, Kosko introduced klsko unsupervised technique of differential Hebbian learning sometimes called the “differential synapse,” and most famously the BAM or bidirectional associative memory  family of feedback neural architectures, with corresponding global stability theorems. The concepts are presented clearly and precisely.
In this sense voting just asks for trouble.
Fuzzy Thinking: The New Science of Fuzzy Logic
In fuzzy logic, he introduced fuzzy cognitive maps  fuzzy subsethood,  additive fuzzy systems,  fuzzy approximation theorems,  optimal fuzzy rules,  fuzzy associative memories, various neural-based adaptive fuzzy systems,  ratio measures of fuzziness,  the shape of fuzzy sets,  the conditional variance of fuzzy systems,  and the geometric view of finite fuzzy sets as points in hypercubes and its relationship to the ongoing debate of fuzziness versus probability.
Consequently Western scientists have largely resisted fuzzy logic. In fact, you’d say he’s some kind of polymath, throwing maths and philosophy at the page in wild, untrammelled abandon. May 17, Serkelion rated it it was amazing. Retrieved from ” https: 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.
Much ado about nothing. It wasn’t worth the wait but I’m still glad I read it. What is the fuzzy principle? Isn’t that a lot like 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.
Apr 25, Cameron rated it it was ok. 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.
Warum gibt es etwas und nicht vielmehr nichts? At the time of birth? HyperionJun 30, – Mathematics – pages.
I like the concept and had come to a lot of the same conclusions myself: In noiseKosko introduced the concept of adaptive stochastic resonance using neural-like learning algorithms to find the optimal level of noise to add to many nonlinear systems to improve their performance. Mar 20, Wendy Yu is currently reading it. If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you.
No eBook available Amazon. Fights break out ufzzy 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.

The Whole in the Part. May 29, Liedzeit rated it liked it Shelves: Feb 17, James rated thikning liked it. 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. Kosko thinks it should and thinks he also knows how. Lists with This Book. Bart Kosko is undoubtedly a very clever man.
Not everything thinkinb black or white–true or false. Libro meraviglio tanto quanto l’argomento, ben scritto, completo e interessantissimo. Rereading a gift from my high school math teacher! There are islands of interesting bits in a sea of mundane text. 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.
I won’t say that the book was boring.
