FUZZY LOGIC SUGGESTS inaccuracy and imprecision. Webster's dictionary defines the word fuzzy as " not clear, distinct, or precise; blurred. " In a broad sense, fuzzy logic refers to fuzzy sets, which are sets with blurred boundaries, and, in a narrow sense, fuzzy logic is a logical system that aims to formalize approximate reasoning. Fuzzy logic is an approach to computer science that mimics the way a human brain thinks and solves problems. The idea of fuzzy logic is to approximate human…

Rational Counterfactuals and Decision Making: Application to Interstate Conflict
This chapter introduces the concept of rational counterfactuals which is an idea of identifying a counterfactual from the factual (whether perceived or real), and knowledge of the laws that govern
Fuzzy Sets for Modeling Interstate Conflict
This chapter investigates the level of transparency of the Takagi-Sugeno neuro-fuzzy model and the support vector machines model by applying them to conflict management, an application which is
Type -1 Fuzzy logic based system for predicating the best Combination of Requirements Elicitation Techniques
A type-1 fuzzy logic system which can learn the best combination of requirements elicitation techniques based on factors affecting this process and related to the characteristics of the project and stakeholders to aid novice analysts later on in the selection process is proposed.
An adaptive fuzzy logic based system for improved knowledge delivery within intelligent E-Learning platforms
A fuzzy logic based system that can learn the users' preferred knowledge delivery based on the students characteristics to generate a personalized learning environment and is adaptive where it is continuously adapting in a lifelong learning mode to make sure that the generated models adapt to the students individual preferences.
A fuzzy control system for decision-making about fungicide applications against grape downy mildew
A fuzzy control system (FCS) was developed to determine whether a fungicide application is needed to control Plasmopara viticola, the causal agent of downy mildew, in a vineyard and was able to reproduce the expert reasoning regarding the decision to apply a fungicidal application.
Artificial Intelligence Approaches For Improved Adaptability in an Adaptive E-Learning Environment: a Review
The adaptive model incorporates the adaptive theory of an AES by combining the domain model with the student model, and defines what can be adapted and how and when it is to be adapted.
Artificial Intelligence Techniques for Steam Generator Modelling
The Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference system out performed the other methods in terms of accuracy and ease of implementation, while still achieving a fast execution time as well as a reasonable training time.
