Fuzzy Thinking offers understandable insights into why fuzzy theory is bagt and how it can contribute to better appliances and better science.


Fuzzy Thinking: The New Science of Fuzzy Logic by Bart Kosko

In neural networks, Kosko introduced the unsupervised technique of differential Hebbian learning[11] sometimes called the “differential synapse,” and most famously the BAM or bidirectional associative memory [12] family of feedback neural architectures, with corresponding global stability theorems.

In this sense voting just asks for trouble.
