What is Fuzzy logic or the fuzzy world?

Fuzzy logic is simply the idea of a "logic" that can take on a continuous range of values from 0 to 1 instead of only 0 or 1. This models the real world much better.


FUZZY logic is not new.....but for some reason many of the younger computer data-heads have forgotten the world of the Analog computers of the 50's and 60's. These computers were exceedingly powerful, and also very, very temperamental. Fuzzy logic is an attempt to get back to the power of analog computing without the headaches. It has been somewhat successful.
