Some Reflections on Information Granulation and its Centrality in Granular Computing, Computing with Words, the Computational Theory of Perceptions and Precisiated Natural Language
The past few years have witnessed what in retrospect may be seen as a turning point in the evolution of fuzzy logic. What I have in mind is the debut of four linked methodologies: granular computing, computing with words, the computational theory of perceptions and precisiated natural language. What follows is a view of the links between the underlying structures of these methodologies — a view which is presented from a personal perspective.
