Fuzzy Logic and Expert Systems

  • Larry R. Medsker


The combination of fuzzy logic and expert systems is a fundamental technique flowing directly from the nature of fuzzy logic. Fuzzy expert systems are currently the most popular use of fuzzy logic with many applications now operational in a diverse range of subjects.
