Soft Computing and the Life Sciences - Philosophical Remarks

  title={Soft Computing and the Life Sciences - Philosophical Remarks},
  author={Rudolf Seising},
  journal={2007 IEEE International Fuzzy Systems Conference},
The core of soft computing consists of "fuzzy sets and systems" (FSS) "computing with words" (CW) and the "computational theory of perceptions" (CTP). These methodologies found first applications in the life sciences. One part of this paper presents some aspects of the history of philosophy of life sciences. The second part focuses on a generalization in a sense of meta-scientific reflections: FSS, CW, and CTP build a stack of methodologies to help bridge the gap between systems and phenomena… CONTINUE READING
