Fuzzy Thinking: The New Science of Fuzzy Logic Its the singer, not the song and I didn t finish this book after the basic concept had been explained and it got repetitive I like the concept and had come to a lot of the same conclusions myself reading philosophy when I should have been studying harder for engineering getting bitterly disappointed with AI andinterested in ANN getting totally disillusioned with academicsBut then I built a bridge, got over it and used my fuzzy insight for getting on with a career in engineering Its the singer, not the song and I didn t finish this book after the basic concept had been explained and it got repetitive I like the concept and had come to a lot of the same conclusions myself reading philosophy when I should have been studying harder for engineering getting bitterly disappointed with AI andinterested in ANN getting totally disillusioned with academicsBut then I built a bridge, got over it and used my fuzzy insight for getting on with a career in engineering, system design and system modelling This guy decided to stay in the academic trenches and bleat about how muchmature he is than the old school, while carrying on with all the nasty academic in fighting crap he supposedly looks down upon In short he comes across as an A Grade, multiple PhD, FIGJAM wanker As a professional I would have a lotrespect if he had gone out and commercialised it straight away As a person with a postgraduate research degree I respect a DE or DSc a lotthan 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 As a Taoist I find his behaviour truly humane, bordering on etiquette boom boom a Taoist insult and his lip service to the void philosophies irritating.I am interested in readingabout 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.Bah now I feel dirty having got annoyed by this book 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 Most of the book is a lengthy, lame, boring and fuzzy introduction to the concept of fuzziness 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.There is a superficial introduction to fuzzy theory as well You can find better ones for free on the net. Probablyor less ok This book took me 20 years to get around to reading It wasn t worth the wait but I m still glad I read it. I haven t read others opinions of this book I have a suspicion it will have been debunked by many reviews This book explained a very valuable metaphor for thinking about imperfect information and uncertainty Unfortunately, fuzzy logic was oversimplified in the collective consciousness, and then was dismissed as nothingthan probability.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 This book explained a very valuable metaphor for thinking about imperfect information and uncertainty Unfortunately, fuzzy logic was oversimplified in the collective consciousness, and then was dismissed as nothingthan probability.Fuzzy Logic, before the term got irretrievably co opted to mean putting an asterisk in a search string, or assigning probability to an event, meant that the truth of many matters is gray To take an example, it s not that we can t say with confidence whether an apple is red or not Many apples really are kind of red So it is with many, many things in the real world Fuzzy logic, properly, is a framework for expressing that mathematically precisely as math insists , and modeling it in software.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 rotor, using approximations of expert human fliers as rules , even though no human could ever hope to fly a helicopter that has lost a rotor A washing machine that recognizes how clean is clean, and washes until it gets there Besides, broadening math for its own sake is always valuable Mostly boring If you are into electronics, you might find this book interesting There are islands of interesting bits in a sea of mundane text.I won t say that the book was boring It was certainly informative But I think the author could have done a better job of arranging the text in ainteresting manner.Also, I felt the repeated comparisons between the Buddha and Aristotle seemed contrived He could certainly have done with less comparisons. Bart Kosko is undoubtedly a very clever man In fact, you d say he s some kind of polymath, throwing maths and philosophy at the page in wild, untrammelled abandon Undoubtedly, as a hyper intellectual hippie sort of character, he decided he needed some pop science publishing history to back up his academic credentials Unfortunately, he decided to make up a subject, and even after he did that, he forgot to stick to it. . the author Bart Kosko is a bright active mind He is writing with lots of enthusiasm But while reading his book i really liked to ask him to cool down.Gets a up thumb from me.
