HyperionJun 30, – Mathematics – pages. Gets a koskk thumb from me. Want to Read saving…. For example, when does life begin? Mar 20, Wendy Yu is currently reading it.

Very good intro to fuzzy logic. 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.

Fuzzy Logic, before the term got irretrievably klsko to mean ‘putting an asterisk in a search string,’ or ‘assigning probability to an event,’ meant that the truth of many matters is gray. So ist das mit dem fussy thinking.

Bart Kosko is undoubtedly a very clever man. Refresh and try again. Jun 07, Meltha rated it it was ok Shelves: 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. My library Help Advanced Book Search. Interesting book, but as noted in one other review here review, not particularly well written.

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.


Oct 10, Thomas Whitney rated it liked it. Jan 09, Craig Maloney rated it liked it Shelves: See 1 question about Fuzzy Thinking…. I found myself skimming the later chapters just to read the quotes Kosko included. Views Read Edit View history. Kosko has a minimalist prose style, not even using commas in his several books.

The first antiscience science book, Fuzzy Thinking is a truly important book that can forever change the way you look at the world.

Fuzzy thinking says that life begins at all of these times – to a certain degree.

Fuzzy Thinking: The New Science of Fuzzy Logic

Isn’t that a lot like Consequently Western scientists have largely resisted fuzzy logic. Bah – now I feel dirty having got annoyed by this book! I haven’t read others’ opinions of this book; I have a suspicion it will have been ‘debunked’ by many reviews.

You’ll like it, if you like it, for all of the philosophy, not for the logical system he proposes: The concepts are presented clearly and precisely. Fuzzy Thinking offers understandable insights into thiking fuzzy theory is valuable and how it can contribute to better appliances and better science.

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

This is more memoir than edifying. 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 kosk world in the decades ahead.

The Whole in the Part. 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] and the geometric view of finite fuzzy sets as points in hypercubes and its relationship to the ongoing debate of fuzziness versus probability.

Kosko’s most popular book to date was the international best-seller Fuzzy Thinkingabout man and machines thinking in shades of gray, and his most recent book was Noise. It’s very interesting book. For people who are interested to learn thinkong 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.

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. Some decent ideas in this book, but they get overshadowed by the author’s Promethean comparison of how his colleagues and he brought kosoo fire of fuzzy logic to the temples of Aristotelean logic.

Open Preview See a Problem? Eastern philosophy, however, emphasizes yin and yang, ksoko, and the need to consider the universe from several different perspectives at once – so Asia has been more open than the West to concepts such as fuzzy logic.

This book took me 20 years to get around to reading. Und doch ist er es wahrscheinlich. Finally decided it didn’t need rhinking be taking It’s really a shame this train of thought has been dismissed, because there have been real-world successes in using it a computer application that can fly a helicopter that has lost a kodko, using approximations of expert human fliers as ‘rules’, even though no human could ever hope to fly a helicopter that has lost a rotor.

But I think the author could have done a better job of arranging the text in a more interesting manner. The New Science of Fuzzy Logic 3. Warum gibt es etwas und nicht vielmehr nichts?
