The Development of Chemical Artificial Intelligence Processing Fuzzy Logic

The Human Nervous System is an outstanding example of natural complex system. Its hierarchical architecture and its basic nonlinear working principles store the secrets of Complexity. Of course, a scrutiny of the Human Nervous System is going to have a profound impact on the challenges to Complexity. In this contribution, we present the first results in our analysis of the human nervous system at the “computational”, “algorithmic” and “implementation” levels. Such analysis will probably bring to the development of a new generation of computing machines imitating the human intelligence that computes with words and solves quite easily computational problems like the recognition of variable patterns.
