—This paper presents a novel approach to the representation of type-1 and type-2 fuzzy sets utilising computational geometry. To achieve this our approach borrows ideas from the field of computational geometry and applies these techniques in the novel setting of fuzzy logic. We provide new algorithms for various operations on type-1 and type-2 fuzzy sets… (More)

Abstract—Construction of interval type-2 fuzzy set models is the first step in the Perceptual Computer, an implementation of Computing with Words. The Interval Approach (IA) has been so far the only… (More)
— This paper presents the geometric defuzzifier for generalised type-2 fuzzy sets. This defuzzifier can be executed in real-time and can therefore be applied to control and other real world problems. We believe this to be a significant step forward for generalised type-2 fuzzy logic systems.
²This paper introduces a parallelization of fuzzy logic-based image processing using Graphics Processor Units (GPUs). Using an NVIDIA 8800 Ultra, a 126 time speed improvement can be made to fuzzy edge extraction making its processing real-time. The GPU can process approximately 42 frames per second at 640x480 image resolution, thus 307,200 inference… (More)
Defuzzification of type-2 fuzzy sets is a com-putationally intense problem. This paper proposes a new approach for defuzzification of interval type-2 fuzzy sets. The collapsing method converts an interval type-2 fuzzy set into a representative embedded set (RES) which, being a type-1 set, can then be de-fuzzified straightforwardly. The novel Representative… (More)
For generalised type-2 fuzzy sets the defuzzification process has historically been slow and inefficient. This has hampered the development of type-2 Fuzzy Inferencing Systems for real applications and therefore no advantage has been taken of the ability of type-2 fuzzy sets to model higher levels of uncertainty. The research reported here provides a novel… (More)
