The notion of fuzzy sets has proven useful in the context of control theory, pattern recognition, and medical diagnosis. However, it has also spawned the view that classical probability theory is unable to deal with uncertainties in natural language and machine learning, so that alternatives to probability are needed. One such alternative is what is known as “possibility theory.” Such alternatives have come into being because past attempts at making fuzzy set theory and probability theory work… CONTINUE READING
