With low computational complexity and relatively short development time, Fuzzy Logic is an indispensable tool for engineering applications. The field is growing at an unprecedented rate, and there is a need for a book that describes essential tools, applications, examples, and perspectives in the field of fuzzy learning. The editors of Fuzzy Learning and Applications fill this need, providing an essential book for researchers, scientists, and engineers alike.
Organized into four parts, this book starts with the simplest learning method and gradually arrives at the most complex. First, it summarizes all the symbols and formulae used in the succeeding chapters and presents a historical overview of fuzzy learning. Next, it deals with current techniques, ranging from deterministic to hybrid methods. It then illustrates the enormous number of possibilities offered by fuzzy learning. Finally, it covers hardware dedicated to fuzzy learning, from digital to analog designs and implementations. With Fuzzy Learning and Applications, readers will discover the enormous possibilities fuzzy learning offers.
