Fuzzy logic refers to a computer's ability to make decisions involving "grey" or "fuzzy" areas. As linguistics contains numerous "grey" areas, computing with words through the use of fuzzy logic is an extremely hot topic in database and Internet research. This book explores the state of the art in linguistic computation, discussing how current research findings are extending the application of fuzzy logic beyond control engineering and intelligent systems into the use of language on a computer. Fuzzy logic pioneer, Dr. Lofti Zadeh, provides the introduction for this thought-provoking work.
