Every time I picked it up and flipped through it absolutely nothing drew me in and prompted me to continue reading. But I think the author could have done a better job of arranging the text in a more interesting manner. On tap are “smarter” computers and such medical advances as smart artificial body parts.
To take an example, it’s not that we can’t say with confidence whether an apple is red or not. Books by Bart Kosko. From inside the book.
Fuzzy Thinking: The New Science of Fuzzy Logic by Bart Kosko
Interesting approach to math and philosophy. Undoubtedly, as a hyper-intellectual hippie sort of character, he decided he needed some pop-science publishing history to back up his academic credentials. I like the concept and had come to a lot of the same conclusions myself: A waste of time.
I am interested in reading more about fuzzy logic so that I can formally use it in future problem solving but will take the hard text books rather than this “impress the masses” self-promotion pop-science book. I tried for years to get into this book. Apr 21, Rob Melich rated it really liked it. Fyzzy Logic, before the term got irretrievably co-opted to mean ‘putting an asterisk in a search string,’ or ‘assigning probability to an event,’ mea I haven’t read others’ opinions of this book; I have a suspicion it will have been ‘debunked’ by many reviews.
Interesting book, but as noted in one other review here review, not ksoko well written.
Long sections are dedicated to claiming how clever the author is – alongside with his mentor and some other people he likes – and about how all of them have suffered because their talent and theories have been misunderstood by a bunch of nitwits.

When the fetus is six months old? He is a contributing editor of the libertarian periodical Libertywhere he has published essays on “Palestinian vouchers”.
In noiseKosko introduced the concept of adaptive stochastic resonance using neural-like learning algorithms to find the optimal thinkinf of noise to add to many nonlinear systems to improve their performance.

Contents Shades of Gray. This is more memoir than edifying.
In neural networks, Kosko introduced the unsupervised technique of differential Hebbian learning sometimes called the “differential synapse,” and most famously the BAM or bidirectional associative memory  family of feedback neural architectures, with thinkin global stability theorems. The New Science of Fuzzy Logic. He is notable as a researcher and popularizer of fuzzy logicneural networksand noise, and author of several trade books and textbooks on these and related subjects of machine intelligence.
As a Taoist I find his behaviour truly humane, bordering on etiquette boom boom – a Taoist insult and his lip service to the “void” philosophies irritating.
Most of the book is a lengthy, lame, boring and fuzzy introduction to the concept of fuzziness. In this sense voting just asks for trouble.
