A computer architecture, implementable in either hardware or software, modeled after biological neural networks. Like the biological system in which the processing capability is a result of the interconnection strengths between arrays of nonlinear processing nodes, computerized neural networks, often called perceptrons or multilayer connectionist models, consist of neuron-like units. A homogeneous group of units makes up a layer. These networks are good at pattern recognition. They are adaptive, performing tasks by example, and thus are better for decision-making than are linear learning machines or cluster analysis. They do not require explicit programming.

Identification of causal relations between haemodynamic variables, auditory evoked potentials and isoflurane by means of fuzzy logic. (1/394)

The aim of this study was to identify a possible relationship between haemodynamic variables, auditory evoked potentials (AEP) and inspired fraction of isoflurane (ISOFl). Two different models (isoflurane and mean arterial pressure) were identified using the fuzzy inductive reasoning (FIR) methodology. A fuzzy model is able to identify non-linear and linear components of a causal relationship by means of optimization of information content of available data. Nine young female patients undergoing hysterectomy under general anaesthesia were included. Mean arterial pressure (MAP), heart rate (HR), end-tidal expired carbon dioxide (CO2ET), AEP and ISOFl were monitored with a sampling time of 10 s. The AEP was extracted using an autoregressive model with exogenous input (ARX model) which decreased the processing time compared with a moving time average. The AEP was mapped into a scalar, termed the depth of anaesthesia index (DAI) normalized to 100 when the patient was awake and descending to an average of 25 during loss of consciousness. The FIR methodology identified those variables among the input variables (MAP, HR, CO2ET, DAI or ISOFl) that had the highest causal relation with the output variables (ISOFl and MAP). The variables with highest causal relation constitute the ISOFl and MAP models. The isoflurane model predicted the given anaesthetic dose with a mean error of 12.1 (SD 10.0)% and the mean arterial pressure model predicted MAP with a mean error of 8.5 (7.8)%.  (+info)

Fuzzy logic and measles vaccination: designing a control strategy. (2/394)

BACKGROUND: The State of Sao Paulo, the most populous in Brazil, was virtually free of measles from 1987 until the end of 1996 when the number of cases started to rise. It reached alarming numbers in the middle of 1997 and local health authorities decided to implement a mass vaccination campaign. METHODS: Fuzzy Decision Making techniques are applied to the design of the vaccination campaign. RESULTS: The mass vaccination strategy chosen changed the natural course of the epidemic. It had a significant impact on the epidemic in the metropolitan area of Sao Paulo city, but a second epidemic in the State's interior forced the public health authorities to implement a second mass vaccination campaign 2 months after the first. CONCLUSIONS: Fuzzy Logic techniques are a powerful tool for the design of control strategies against epidemics of infectious diseases.  (+info)

Which algorithm for scheduling add-on elective cases maximizes operating room utilization? Use of bin packing algorithms and fuzzy constraints in operating room management. (3/394)

BACKGROUND: The algorithm to schedule add-on elective cases that maximizes operating room (OR) suite utilization is unknown. The goal of this study was to use computer simulation to evaluate 10 scheduling algorithms described in the management sciences literature to determine their relative performance at scheduling as many hours of add-on elective cases as possible into open OR time. METHODS: From a surgical services information system for two separate surgical suites, the authors collected these data: (1) hours of open OR time available for add-on cases in each OR each day and (2) duration of each add-on case. These empirical data were used in computer simulations of case scheduling to compare algorithms appropriate for "variable-sized bin packing with bounded space." "Variable size" refers to differing amounts of open time in each "bin," or OR. The end point of the simulations was OR utilization (time an OR was used divided by the time the OR was available). RESULTS: Each day there were 0.24 +/- 0.11 and 0.28 +/- 0.23 simulated cases (mean +/- SD) scheduled to each OR in each of the two surgical suites. The algorithm that maximized OR utilization, Best Fit Descending with fuzzy constraints, achieved OR utilizations 4% larger than the algorithm with poorest performance. CONCLUSIONS: We identified the algorithm for scheduling add-on elective cases that maximizes OR utilization for surgical suites that usually have zero or one add-on elective case in each OR. The ease of implementation of the algorithm, either manually or in an OR information system, needs to be studied.  (+info)

Evaluation of new online automated embolic signal detection algorithm, including comparison with panel of international experts. (4/394)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The clinical application of Doppler detection of circulating cerebral emboli will depend on a reliable automated system of embolic signal detection; such a system is not currently available. Previous studies have shown that frequency filtering increases the ratio of embolic signal to background signal intensity and that the incorporation of such an approach into an offline automated detection system markedly improved performance. In this study, we evaluated an online version of the system. In a single-center study, we compared its performance with that of a human expert on data from 2 clinical situations, carotid stenosis and the period immediately after carotid endarterectomy. Because the human expert is currently the "gold standard" for embolic signal detection, we also compared the performance of the system with an international panel of human experts in a multicenter study. METHODS: In the single-center evaluation, the performance of the software was tested against that of a human expert on 20 hours of data from 21 patients with carotid stenosis and 18 hours of data from 9 patients that was recorded after carotid endarterectomy. For the multicenter evaluation, a separate 2-hour data set, recorded from 5 patients after carotid endarterectomy, was analyzed by 6 different human experts using the same equipment and by the software. Agreement was assessed by determining the probability of agreement. RESULTS: In the 20 hours of carotid stenosis data, there were 140 embolic signals with an intensity of > or =7 dB. With the software set at a confidence threshold of 60%, a sensitivity of 85.7% and a specificity of 88.9% for detection of embolic signals were obtained. At higher confidence thresholds, a specificity >95% could be obtained, but this was at the expense of a lower sensitivity. In the 18 hours of post-carotid endarterectomy data, there were 411 embolic signals of > or =7-dB intensity. When the same confidence threshold was used, a sensitivity of 95.4% and a specificity of 97.5% were obtained. In the multicenter evaluation, a total of 127 events were recorded as embolic signals by at least 1 center. The total number of embolic signals detected by the 6 different centers was 84, 93, 108, 92, 63, and 78. The software set at a confidence threshold of 60% detected 90 events as embolic signals. The mean probability of agreement, including all human experts and the software, was 0.83, and this was higher than that for 2 human experts and lower than that for 4 human experts. The mean values for the 6 human observers were averaged to give P=0.84, which was similar to that of the software. CONCLUSIONS: By using the frequency specificity of the intensity increase occurring with embolic signals, we have developed an automated detection system with a much improved sensitivity. Its performance was equal to that of some human experts and only slightly below the mean performance of a panel of human experts  (+info)

A property concept frame representation for flexible image-content retrieval in histopathology databases. (5/394)

In histopathology databases, images descriptions are collections of properties provided by experts. Image content retrieval implies comparison of such properties. The objective of this work is to enrich the traditional attribute-value representation of properties in order to take into account the polymorphism and subjectivity of properties and to manage the comparison process. In this paper we define a property concept frame (PCF) representation based on fuzzy logic to handle both representation and comparison. Seven quantifiable morphological characteristics were selected from histopathological reports to illustrate the variety of fuzzy predicates and linguistic terms in properties. The PCF representation has been tested in the context of breast pathology. It is concluded that the PCF representation provides a unification scheme to retrieve in images morphological characteristics that are described in different ways. It may enhance the relevancy of applications in various contexts such as image content-based retrieval or case-based reasoning from images.  (+info)

Decision trees and fuzzy logic: a comparison of models for the selection of measles vaccination strategies in Brazil. (6/394)

In 1997, health authorities of the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil designed a vaccination campaign against measles based on a decision model that utilized fuzzy logic. The chosen mass vaccination strategy was implemented and changed the natural course of the epidemic in that state. We have built a model using a decision tree and compare it to the fuzzy logic model. Using essentially the same set of assumptions about this problem, we contrast the two approaches. The models identify the same strategy as being the best one, but exhibit differences in the ranking of the remaining strategies.  (+info)

Prevention of haemodialysis-induced hypotension by biofeedback control of ultrafiltration and infusion. (7/394)

BACKGROUND: Haemodialysis-induced hypotension is still a severe complication in spite of all the progress in haemodialysis treatment. Because of its multifactorial causes, haemodialysis-induced hypotension cannot be reliably prevented by conventional ultrafiltration and sodium profiling in open-loop systems, as they are unable to adapt themselves to actual decreases in blood pressure. METHODS: A blood-pressure-guided closed-loop system, for prevention of haemodialysis-induced hypotension by biofeedback-driven computer control of both ultrafiltration and saline infusion was clinically tested in 237 treatments of seven patients prone to hypotension. As medical knowledge on multifactorial causes of hypotension is characterized by a lack in deterministic knowledge, fuzzy logic and linguistic variables were used to involve clinical experience on hypotension phenomena in terms of fuzzy knowledge. Biofeedback control is based on frequent measurements of blood pressure at 5 min intervals. Blood pressure behaviour is described by linguistic variables and fuzzy sets. Adaptive rule bases were used for the simultaneous fuzzy control of both the ultrafiltration and infusion of hypertonic saline (20% NaCl). Proper adaptation of control features to patient's conditions was provided by the critical borderline pressure, which was set by the physician individually at the beginning of each treatment. During the initial and medium phases of the sessions, ultrafiltration rates up to 150% of the average rates were applied as long as decreases in blood pressure could be compensated by saline infusion. The surplus of ultrafiltrate volume was used for blood pressure stabilization in the final phase in most instances by low ultrafiltration rates. RESULTS: The advantages of biofeedback-controlled haemodialysis were demonstrated by both decreasing the frequency of hypotonic episodes and by increasing or maintaining constant levels of systolic blood pressure during the final phase in 88% of treatments. As saline infusion was applied mainly in the initial and medium phases, blood sodium levels were not significantly higher at the end of the sessions, and interdialytic weight gain was not elevated. CONCLUSION: The application of fuzzy logic in the blood-pressure-guided biofeedback control of ultrafiltration and sodium infusion during haemodialysis is able to minimize haemodialysis-induced hypotension.  (+info)

A web exercise in evidence-based medicine using cognitive theory. (8/394)

Our aim was to improve clinical reasoning skills by applying an established theory of memory, cognition, and decision making (fuzzy-trace theory) to instruction in evidence-based medicine. Decision-making tasks concerning chest pain evaluation in women were developed for medical students and internal medicine residents. The fuzzy-trace theory guided the selection of online sources (e.g., target articles) and decision-making tasks. Twelve students and 22 internal medicine residents attended didactic conferences emphasizing search, evaluation, and clinical application of relevant evidence. A 17-item Likert scale questionnaire assessed participants' evaluation of the instruction. Ratings for each of the 17 items differed significantly from chance in favor of this alternative approach to instruction. We concluded that fuzzy-trace theory may be a useful guide for developing learning exercises in evidence-based medicine.  (+info)

This study vitalized the uncertainty and fuzzy rules consideration in the estimation of phosphorus loadings and eutrophication status of the hydrologic system namely detention pond using Fuzzy Logic (MATLAB). These methods were chosen to cater for the uncertainty of loading factors such as sediment and phosphorus inflow, inflowing discharge and pond storage volume. The average of phosphorus concentrations obtained from site investigation was 0.178 mg/L, hydraulic residence time was 1.77 year and the average annual hydraulic loadings was 694.70 m/yr, obtained based on the 12 years period (2000-2012). The results showed that the maximum and minimum of phosphorus loadings was 2.00 x 10-3 ton/year and 5.00 x 10-3 ton/year. Phosphorus loadings obtained from MATLAB fuzzy logic was 3.9 x 10-3 ton/year. The eutrophication status of the detention pond was investigated using Fuzzy Logic Approach, incorporating various fuzzy rules (MATLAB). This evaluation required the twinning usage of Vollenweider P-Loadings
In recent years, soft computing methods have generated a large research interest. The synthesis of the fuzzy logic and the evolutionary algorithms is one of these methods. A particular evolutionary algorithm (EA) is differential evolution (DE). As for any EA, DE algorithm also requires parameters tuning to achieve desirable performance. In this paper tuning the perturbation factor vector of DE is done with a Fuzzy Logic Controller (FLC) that adjusts this parameter dynamically. We apply the fuzzy logic controlled differential evolution(FLC-DE) to solve the economic load dispatch problem of two test systems consisting of 13 and 40 thermal generators whose non-smooth fuel cost function takes into account the valve-point loading effects. Simulation results indicate that the performance of the FLC-DE present the best results when compared with other optimization approaches in solving economic load dispatch problems.
Fuzzy logic control presents a computationally efficient and robust alternative to conventional controllers for many systems. This paper presents a distributed fuzzy logic controller (FLC) structure for a flexible-link manipulator based on evaluating the importance degrees of the output variables of the system. The two velocity variables, which have higher importance degrees, are grouped together as the inputs of the Velocity FLC. The two displacement variables, which have lower importance degrees, are used as the inputs of the Displacement FLC. The outputs of those two FLCs are summed up to control the joint of the flexible link. The fuzzy rules of the distributed importance-based FLCs are written based on the expert knowledge, and the parameters of the membership functions of the two FLCs are tuned using nonlinear programming. The distributed importance-based FLC structure is further compared with two other commonly used structures: a Linear Quadratic Regulator and a distributed PD-like FLC. The
Professor Merrie Bergmann presents an accessible introduction to the subject of many-valued and fuzzy logic designed for use on undergraduate and graduate courses in non-classical logic. Bergmann discusses the philosophical issues that give rise to fuzzy logic - problems arising from vague language - and returns to those issues as logical systems are presented. For historical and pedagogical reasons, three-valued logical systems are presented as useful intermediate systems for studying the principles and theory behind fuzzy logic. The major fuzzy logical systems - Lukasiewicz, Gödel, and product logics - are then presented as generalisations of three-valued systems that successfully address the problems of vagueness. A clear presentation of technical concepts, this book includes exercises throughout the text that pose straightforward problems, that ask students to continue proofs begun in the text, and that engage students in the comparison of logical systems. ...

Fuzzy sets have been applied in medical field where uncertainty plays a major role. Medicine, often on the borderline between science and art, is an excellent example where vagueness, hesitation, linguistic uncertainty, measurement imprecision, natural diversity and subjectivity are prominently present in medical diagnosis. Medical diagnosis is a problem complicated by many and manifold factors and its solution involve all of a humans abilities including intuition and the subconscious. Fuzzy logic is used in diagnosis of pulmonary embolism, cortical malformations, rheumatic and pancreatic diseases, hepatitides and diabetes. Fuzzy inference system is a linguistic frame work by which human thinking process can be modeled. In this study we are presenting a fuzzy inference system that will diagnose the thyroid disease specially a major disorder known as Hypothyroidism. It is the most common thyroid disorder today. Because of uncertain symptoms, it is very difficult to diagnose the disease. Particularly in
Autonomous vehicles can be used in variety of applications such as hazardous environment or intelligent highway system. Fuzzy logic seems to be an appropriate choice for this area. This paper proposes a fuzzy logic controller for steering an autonomous vehicle toward a target. The controller is divided into separate modules to mimic the way humans think while driving. One module drives the vehicle toward the target while another is used to avoid collision with obstacles. A separate module is designed to drive the vehicle through mazes. The last module adjusts the final orientation of the target. The paper contains several examples to demonstrate the interaction between the several modules of the controller
  Manufacturing flexibility is the ability of a manufacturing system to cope with environmental changes effectively and efficiently. Most operation managers cannot provide exact numerical values to express opinions based on human perception due to ill defined and ambiguity of flexibility assessment. However, fuzzy logic provides a useful tool to deal with problems in which the phenomena are imprecise and vague. The purpose of this study is to measure the flexibility of manufacturing system based on multi-criteria decision making using fuzzy logic approach. In this approach, the performance ratings and importance weights of different flexibility capabilities assessed by experts are expressed in linguistic terms. Fuzzy performance-importance index of each flexibility capability is also devised to help managers identify the main adverse factors and calls for managers to institute an appropriate action plan to improve the flexibility level. An example is also used to illustrate the approach
The use of renewable energy resources has created some problems for power systems. One of the most important of these is load frequency control (LFC). In this study, in order to solve the LFC problem, modern control methods were applied to a two area multi source interconnected power system. A photovoltaic solar power plant (PV-SPP) was also connected, in order to identify the harmful effects on the frequency of the system. A new Genetic-based Fuzzy Logic (GA-FL) controller was designed to control the frequency of the system. For comparison, conventional proportional-integral-derivative (PID), fuzzy logic (FL), and Genetic Algorithm (GA)-PID controllers were also designed. The new control method exhibited a better performance than the conventional and other modern control methods, because of the low overshoot and short settling time. All simulations were realized with the Matlab-Simulink program.
This thesis introduces a novel scheme by which several methods of comparing performance are employed to observe how the output and resulting performance levels change as factors including: controller configuration, task difficulty and environmental variability are varied. These methods are performed over three applications which gradually increase in complexity: a simple tipping example, a more developed simulation based on an autonomous sailing robots application and subsequent real-world experiments, which also involve the autonomous sailing problem. The first method of comparison studies how the rules which fire for a given input set change as the configuration of the fuzzy logic controller is increased. The second comparative technique investigates the control surfaces produced by a selection of fuzzy logic controllers to observe how they change as the internal configuration is changed. Observations such as the smoothing of the transitions between surfaces suggest that controllers with a ...
In this paper, the development of fault detection method for PV modules defective bypass diodes is presented. Bypass diodes are nowadays used in PV modules in order to enhance the output power production during partial shading conditions. However, there is lack of scientific research which demonstrates the detection of defective bypass diodes in PV systems. Thus, this paper propose a PV bypass diode fault detection classification based on Mamdani fuzzy logic system, which depends on the analysis of Vdrop, Voc , and Isc obtained from the I-V curve of the examined PV module. The fuzzy logic system depends on three inputs, namely percentage of voltage drop (PVD), percentage of open circuit voltage (POCV), and the percentage of short circuit current (PSCC). The proposed fuzzy system can detect up to 13 different faults associated with defective and non-defective bypass diodes. In addition, the proposed system was evaluated using two different PV modules under various defective bypass conditions. ...
This thesis describes the model-based development and validation of an advisor for the maintenance of artificially ventilated patients in the intensive care unit (ICU). The advisor employs fuzzy logic to represent an anaesthetists decision making process when adjusting ventilator settings to safely maintain a patients blood-gases and airway pressures within desired limits. Fuzzy logic was chosen for its ability to process both quantitative and qualitative data. The advisor estimates the changes in inspired O2 fraction (FI02), peak inspiratory pressure (PEEP), respiratory rate (RR), tidal volume (VT) and inspiratory time (TIN), based upon observations of the patient state and the current ventilator settings. The advisor rules only considered the ventilation of patients on volume control (VC) and pressure regulated volume control (PRVC) modes. The fuzzy rules were handcrafted using known physiological relationships and from tacit knowledge elicited during dialogue with anaesthetists. The ...

This paper presents an example of the use of fuzzy logic combined with influence coefficients applied to engine test-cell data to diagnose gas-path related performance faults. The approach utilizes influence coefficients which describe the changes in measurable parameters due to changes in component condition such as compressor efficiency. Such approaches usually have the disadvantages of attributing measurement noise or sensor errors to changes in engine condition, and do not have the ability to diagnose more faults than the number of measurement parameters that exist. These disadvantages usually make such methods impractical for anything but simulated data without measurement noise or errors. However, in this example, the influence coefficients are used in an iterative approach, in combination with fuzzy logic, to overcome these obstacles. The method is demonstrated using eight examples from real-world test-cell data.. Copyright © 2007 by Commonwealth of Australia ...
Sensitivity-based linear learning method (SBLLM) has recently been used as a predictive tool due to its unique characteristics and performance, particularly its high stability and consistency during predictions. However, the generalisation capability of SBLLM is sometimes limited depending on the nature of the dataset, particularly on whether uncertainty is present in the dataset or not. Since it made use of sensitivity analysis in relation to the data sets used, it is surely very prone to being affected by the nature of the dataset. In order to reduce the effects of uncertainties in SBLLM prediction and improve its generalisation ability, this paper proposes a hybrid system through the unique combination of type-2 fuzzy logic systems (type-2 FLSs) and SBLLM; thereafter the hybrid system was used to model PVT properties of crude oil systems. Type-2 FLS has been choosen in order to better handle uncertainties existing in datasets beyond the capability of type-1 fuzzy logic systems. In the proposed hybrid

The complex structure of construction project risks arises from their internal and external interactions with their dynamic nature throughout the life cycle of the project. A system dynamics (SD) approach to construction project risk management is presented, including risk analysis and response process. Owing to the imprecise and uncertain nature of risks, fuzzy logic is integrated into system dynamics modelling structure. Risk magnitudes are defined by a fuzzy logic based risk magnitude prediction system. Zadehs extension principle and interval arithmetic is employed in the SD simulation model to present the system outcomes considering uncertainties in the magnitude of risks resulting from the risk magnitude prediction system. The performance of the proposed method is assessed by employing the method in the risk management plan of a sample project. The impact of a sample risk is quantified and efficiency of different alternative response scenarios is assessed. The proposed approach supports ...

The research described in the report is two-fold. First, the basic approach to developing a fuzzy logic controller (FLC) using genetic algorithms (GAs) is presented. The GA-designed FLC is developed for a specific physical system, a pH titration system. Second, empirical results are presented in which variations in the FLC implementation are compared. Specifically, the effects of altering five aspects of the pH FLC are considered: (1) membership function form, (2) number of fuzzy classes, (3) the center-of-area method, (4) implication operator, and (5) fuzzy rule form. Results indicate that the technique in which GAs are used to design FLCs is effective, and when this technique is used, variations in FLC implementation have little effect on FLC performance in a chosen control problem. - NIOSHTIC-2 ...
In this paper, we propose a hybrid design method for fuzzy logic controller (FLC), where the control objective for unicycle is to achieve velocity control of the wheel while keep the pendulum at the balanced position that is an unstable equilibrium. The hybrid design consists of three phases. First, FLC structure including the number of rules, membership function, inference, and parametric relations, are chosen based on heuristic knowledge about the unicycle. Then, based on a linearized model and linear feedback, the output parameters of FLC are determined quantitatively for the stabilization of the unicycle. Next, fine tuning of FLC output parameters are carried out using an iterative learning tuning (ILT) algorithm, where ILT iteratively minimizes an objective function that specifies the desired unicycle performance. The rationale of introducing the hybrid FLC design is to fully utilize available information, which is achieved by combining model-based and model-free designs, hence improve FLC ...
Air pollution such as particulate matter (PM) emitted from industries result in several thousands of deaths. In recognition of this global threat, a large number of abatement measures have been taken to minimize the emission of this pollutant. Wet scrubber system has been the most widely used control device for PM contaminants. Its operating variables (gas velocity, temperature profile, particle size, liquid droplets size, terminal settling velocity of liquid droplets, particle density and liquid to gas ratio) fluctuates randomly, thus resulting in a non-linear dynamic behavior of the system. This non-linearity generally limits the ability of the scrubber to control PM less than 5μm in diameter. Thus, in this study, intelligent control technique based on fuzzy logic controller (FLC) has been developed to solve the non-linearity in the system by selecting appropriate scrubbing liquid droplet size in order to improve system performance to control PM that are less than 5μm in diameter. The ...

This weeks developer discussion is all about fuzzy logic. Click here to join the conversation by posting a comment. Have you used fuzzy logic before? If so, how did you apply it to your game AI? If not, why didnt you use fuzzy logic? Nice and Crisp Theres no argument here: discrete logic is the default in the game AI industry. Heres my take on why thats the case: Crisp logic is easier to implement, whether using finite state machines, behavior trees, or planners. Its more efficient to consider the best choice rather than having to calculate probabilities for alternatives. Design is more intuitive when the choices are crisp. Its easier to predict the outcome of an emergent system. Crisp decisions for the behaviors are easier to understand for the player, and less confusing. In a way, these are points against fuzzy logic. Do you agree with them? When to Go Fuzzy? Like any tool, fuzzy logic certainly has its advantages. To name a few: Its easier to write logic for reasoning with
Description Logic is a formalism that is widely used in the framework of Knowledge Representation and Reasoning in Artificial Intelligence. It is based on Classical Logic in order to guarantee the correctness of the inferences on the required reasoning tasks. It is indeed a fragment of First Order Predicate Logic whose language is strictly related to the one of Modal Logic. Fuzzy Description Logic is the generalization of the classical Description Logic framework thought for reasoning with vague concepts that often arise in practical applications. Fuzzy Description Logic has been investigated since the last decade of the 20th century. During the first fifteen years of investigation its semantics has been based on Fuzzy Set Theory. A semantics based on Fuzzy Set Theory, however, has been shown to have some counter-intuitive behavior, due to the fact that the truth function for the implication used is not the residuum of the truth function for the conjunction. In the meanwhile, Fuzzy Logic has ...
Petrophysical properties of petroleum reservoir rocks are usually obtained by laborious core laboratory measurements. The present study investigates the capability of petrographic image analysis applied on thin sections of reservoir rock and fuzzy logic for predicting porosity in carbonate rocks. The proposed methodology comprises two steps: first, the petrographic parameters, including porosity type, grain size, mean geometrical shape coefficient of grains, and texture type, were extracted for each thin section based on image analysis techniques. Consequently, the petrographic parameters were formulated to core porosity using a Takagi and Sugeno fuzzy inference system. Petrographic image analysis is an emerging technology, which provides fast and accurate quantitative evaluation from reservoir rock. The results of single petrographic image analysis showed inaccurate estimation of total porosity in all rocks except those that have an extremely isotropic pore structure. A quantitative evaluation ...

A fuzzy logic system for processing a vector of signals includes a rule partition table stored in an electronic memory, a rule identifier, and a rule processor. The rule partition table is organized to include identifiers, each corresponding to a unique combination of partitions of signal values of the vector of signals, and each identifying fuzzy rules which are preselected to be applied to a corresponding vector of signals having signal values within respective ranges of the partitions corresponding to the identifier. Preselection may include only fuzzy rules which produce non-zero outputs when applied to a vector of signals having signal values within respective ranges of the partitions corresponding to the identifier. The rule identifier accesses a location in the rule partition table corresponding to the vector of signals, and retrieves therefrom a corresponding identifier. The rule processor applies each identified fuzzy rule to the vector of signals to produce a processed vector of signals. The

Maximum power point tracking (MPPT) is one of the key functions of the solar power management system in solar energy deployment. This paper investigates the design of fuzzy-logic-based solar power MPPT algorithms using different fuzzy input variables. Six fuzzy MPPT algorithms, based on different input variables, were considered in this study, namely (i) slope (of solar power-versus-solar voltage) and changes of the slope; (ii) slope and variation of the power; (iii) variation of power and variation of voltage; (iv) variation of power and variation of current; (v) sum of conductance and increment of the conductance; and (vi) sum of angles of arctangent of the conductance and arctangent of increment of the conductance. Algorithms (i)-(iv) have two input variables each while algorithms (v) and (vi) use a single input variable. The fuzzy logic MPPT function is deployed using a buck-boost power converter. This paper presents the details of the determinations, considerations of the fuzzy rules, as ...
Given the important challenges associated with the processing of brain signals obtained from neuroimaging modalities, fuzzy sets and systems have been proposed as a useful and effective framework for the analysis of brain activity as well as to enable a direct communication pathway between the brain and external devices (brain computer/machine interfaces). While there has been increasing interest in these questions, the contribution of fuzzy logic sets and systems has been diverse depending on the area of application. On the one hand, considering the decoding of brain activity, fuzzy sets and systems represent an excellent tool to overcome the challenge of processing extremely noisy signals that are very likely to be affected by non-stationarities. On the other hand, as regards neuroscience research, fuzziness has equally been employed for the measurement of smooth integration between synapses, neurons, and brain regions or areas. In this context, the proposed special session aims at providing ...

In a perfect world, elevators would never do those irritating things elevators do, such as coming late or not at all. Or stopping at every floor between here and there. Or suddenly slamming their doors on a passenger who has been a nanosecond too slow, or generously opening their doors to show a would-be rider an elevator packed tighter than a Broadway local subway car at rush hour. But this is an imperfect world, and that is why Bruce A. Powell, John S. Kendall and David J.

An intelligent machine relies on computational intelligence in generating its intelligent behaviour. This requires a knowledge system in which representation and processing of knowledge are central functions. Approximation is a soft concept, and the capability to approximate for the purposes of comparison, pattern recognition, reasoning, and decision making is a manifestation of intelligence. This paper examines the use of soft computing in intelligent machines. Soft computing is an important branch of computational intelligence, where fuzzy logic, probability theory, neural networks, and genetic algorithms are synergistically used to mimic the reasoning and decision making of a human. This paper explores several important characteristics and capabilities of machines that exhibit intelligent behaviour. Approaches that are useful in the development of an intelligent machine are introduced. The paper presents a general structure for an intelligent machine, giving particular emphasis to its ...
In this chapter, the urban structure will be defined with zero or almost zero energy consumption, followed by pollution parameters. Energy systems are designed as networks of energy-intensive local hubs with multiple sources of hybrid energies, where different energy flows are collected on the same busbar and can be accumulated, delivered, or transformed as needed into the intelligent urban area. For analysis of the purpose function of our energy system, a micro-network of renewable energy sources (RES) is defined by penalization and limitations. By using fuzzy logic, a set of permissible solutions of this purpose function is accepted, and the type of daily electricity consumption diagrams is defined when applying cluster analysis. A self-organising neural network and then a Kohonen network were used. The experiment is to justify the application of new procedures of mathematical and informatics-oriented methods and optimisation procedures, with an outlined methodology for the design of smart areas and

Einstein stressed that the most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is comprehensible, but M. Rees at the Academia Europaea Annual Conference in Liverpool in 2008 questioned: Are we capable of understanding the physical universe? Eugene Wigner in his article published in 1960 stressed the unreasonable effectiveness of mathematics in the natural sciences:25 Enormous usefulness of mathematics in natural sciences borders on the mysterious and there is no rational explanation for it. It is not surprising: that physicists were led to introduce fuzzy logic (i.e. certain to some extent), that arguing with a friend N. Bohr said, You are not thinking, you are just being logical!, that K. Gödel showed that there are truths beyond proof and R.

Inductive logic programming is particularly useful in bioinformatics and natural language processing. Gordon Plotkin and Ehud Shapiro laid the initial theoretical foundation for inductive machine learning in a logical setting.[1][2][3] Shapiro built their first implementation (Model Inference System) in 1981:[4] a Prolog program that inductively inferred logic programs from positive and negative examples. The term Inductive Logic Programming was first introduced[5] in a paper by Stephen Muggleton in 1991.[6] Muggleton also founded the annual international conference on Inductive Logic Programming, introduced the theoretical ideas of Predicate Invention, Inverse resolution,[7] and Inverse entailment.[8] Muggleton implemented Inverse entailment first in the PROGOL system. The term inductive here refers to philosophical (i.e. suggesting a theory to explain observed facts) rather than mathematical (i.e. proving a property for all members of a well-ordered set) induction. ...
In this study, we studied the effects of some plant hydrosols obtained from bay leaf, black cumin, rosemary, sage, and thyme in reducing Listeria monocytogenes on the surface of fresh-cut apple cubes. Adaptive neurofuzzy inference system (ANFIS), artificial neural network (ANN), and multiple linear regression (MLR) models were used for describing the behavior of L. monocytogenes against the hydrosol treatments. Approximately 1-1.5 log CFU/g decreases in L. monocytogenes counts were observed after individual hydrosol treatments for 20 min. By extending the treatment time to 60 min, thyme, sage, or rosemary hydrosols eliminated L. monocytogenes, whereas black cumin and bay leaf hydrosols did not lead to additional reductions. In addition to antibacterial measurements, the abilities of ANFIS, ANN, and MLR models were compared with respect to estimation of the survival of L. monocytogenes. The root mean square error, mean absolute error, and determination coefficient statistics were used as ...
SINGLE QUANTIFIER COMPREHENSION by Harvey M. Friedman April 13, 2008 TOPIC: HOW CAN INFINITE SET THEORY BE VIEWED AS AN EXTRAPOLATION OF FINITE SET THEORY THROUGH THE ADDITION OF THE AXIOM OF INFINITY? See posting 324, Here we present an alternative approach through what we call Single Quantifier Comprehension. This approach has its advantages over Existential Comprehension - particularly that the quantifier free parts involve only epsilon, and =, and not inclusion. We take Zermelo set theory to be: extensionality, pairing, union, separation, and the modern axiom of infinity (using x union {x}). The primitives are epsilon and =.

Vagueness has long been illustrated with hair-splitting questions such as: How many grains of sand does it take to make a heap? And how many hairs can a bald man have? But in fact, vagueness is pervasive in human language; without it, communication would hardly be possible. Even seemingly precise expressions such as number words are often used approximately, as for instance when one says that Berlin has 3.4 million inhabitants. We can vary this through the use of more or less exact scales, and signal their granularity with words such as about or exactly. But the apparent inexactness cannot be completely avoided. Or how long can an exactly 10-cm long metal bar actually be? While vagueness has often been regarded as undesirable, the VAAG project is based on a growing recognition that vagueness actually plays an important role in communication. Our focus is not so much on the nuances of the formal representation of vagueness, but rather on addressing questions such as why vagueness exists in the ...
This study presents a novel intelligent Fuzzy Genetic Differential Evolutionary model for the optimization of a fuzzy expert system applied to heart disease prediction in order to reduce the risk of heart disease. To this end, a fuzzy expert system has been proposed for the prediction of heart disease. The proposed model can be used as a tool to assist physicians. In order to: (1) tune the parameters of the membership function of the fuzzy expert system, (2) improve its performance and (3) increase its accuracy, the Genetic Algorithm combined with the Differential Evolution Algorithm has been applied to the fuzzy expert system. The proposed hybrid models, Fuzzy-GA, Fuzzy-DE, and Fuzzy-GA-DE were evaluated using ROC curve analysis and 10- fold cross-validation methods. In order to evaluate and validate the performance of the model, we applied it to a dataset including 380 samples collected from Parsian Hospital in Karaj. According to the results, the accuracy of the fuzzy expert system was 85.52% ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - A cooperative fuzzy game theoretic approach to multiple objective design optimization. AU - Dhingra, A. K.. AU - Rao, S. S.. PY - 1995/6/22. Y1 - 1995/6/22. N2 - The utility and applicability of cooperative game theory in an engineering design process is examined. It is shown how game theory may be used as a tool for solving multiple objective optimization (MOO) problems. The concepts in cooperative game theory and fuzzy set theory are combined to yield a new optimization method referred to herein as cooperative fuzzy games. The concept of cooperative fuzzy games can be applied to solve not only well- and ill-structured single and MOO problems, but also preliminary decision making and design problems where only a feasible solution is sought and no objective functions are specified. A completely general formulation capable of solving decision making problems with partly crisp and partly fuzzy objective functions, as well as partly crisp and partly fuzzy constraints is presented. ...
In conclusion, the scientists acknowledge that evaluating a point risk is difficult and has serious limitations for decision makers. Yet, the use of interval risk values that use variability and estimation reduce the uncertainty for a decision maker. With the use of the 2D FMCA, it uses two forms of uncertainty assessment models, which are the combination of fuzzy set theory and probability theory. The 2D FMCA method reduced more uncertainty than any of the other methods described in the literature review of past studies, making it a stronger piece of support to aiding a decision makers capabilities of making the right decision, particularly in regards to the BEU. Which for the BEU the uncertainty index showed the highest degree of uncertainty for the process condensate system, followed by the solvent regeneration section, benzene stripper column section, and lastly the storage and slop drums when put against the high risk sections (See Table 7 results ...

In recent years, acoustic emission (AE) sensors and AE-based techniques have been developed and tested for gearbox fault diagnosis. In general, AE-based techniques require much higher sampling rates than vibration analysis-based techniques for gearbox fault diagnosis. Therefore, it is questionable whether an AE-based technique would give a better or at least the same performance as the vibration analysis-based techniques using the same sampling rate. To answer the question, this paper presents a comparative study for gearbox tooth damage level diagnostics using AE and vibration measurements, the first known attempt to compare the gearbox fault diagnostic performance of AE- and vibration analysis-based approaches using the same sampling rate. Partial tooth cut faults are seeded in a gearbox test rig and experimentally tested in a laboratory. Results have shown that the AE-based approach has the potential to differentiate gear tooth damage levels in comparison with the vibration-based approach. While
This paper explores and evaluates the application of classical and dominance-based rough set theory (RST) for the development of data-driven prognostic classification models for hospice referral. In this work, rough set based models are compared with other data-driven methods with respect to two factors related to clinical credibility: accuracy and accessibility. Accessibility refers to the ability of the model to provide traceable, interpretable results and use data that is relevant and simple to collect. We utilize retrospective data from 9,103 terminally ill patients to demonstrate the design and implementation RST- based models to identify potential hospice candidates. The classical rough set approach (CRSA) provides methods for knowledge acquisition, founded on the relational indiscernibility of objects in a decision table, to describe required conditions for membership in a concept class. On the other hand, the dominance-based rough set approach (DRSA) analyzes information based on the monotonic

This thesis describes a method for generating semantically motivated antecedent candidates for use in pronominal anaphora resolution. Predicate-argument structures are extracted from a large corpus of text parsed by the NorGram grammar and used as the basis for a fuzzy classification model. Given a pronominal anaphor, the model generates antecedent candidates ranked by the frequency by which they co-occur in the same lexical context as the anaphor. This set of candidates is intersected with the set of nouns gathered from the anaphors recent context. A selection basic heuristics are then introduced to the model in a permutational fashion to gauge their individual and combined effect on the models accuracy. The model reached an accuracy of 56.22% correct predictions. Additionally, in a slightly modified model the correct antecedent was found within the antecedent candidate list for 87.12% of the anaphora ...
TY - CHAP. T1 - The Effects of Preprocessing on Colorectal Polyp Detecting by Fuzzy Algorithm. AU - Sziová, Brigita. AU - Nagy, Szilvia. AU - Kóczy, László T.. PY - 2021. Y1 - 2021. N2 - In the following study the effects of two image preprocessing methods, namely Gaussian filtering and Wiener filtering, is studied on the results of a fuzzy inference method previously developed by the authors, for determining whether a colonoscopy picture segment contains any colorectal polyp. As earlier results show that less blurry, less compressed and less noisy images tend to be better classifiable, the effects of noise suppression with a Gaussian filter, which makes the images also blurrier, was beneficial on noisy, compressed images, and rather maleficent in good quality pictures. The effects of the Wiener filter, which both decreases noise and enhances edges, did not really manifest in classification improvement.. AB - In the following study the effects of two image preprocessing methods, namely ...
An automated control system for a dual-fuel boiler, engine, or other apparatus continuously monitors the consumption of a primary fuel source and automatically switches from the primary fuel source to a secondary fuel source when a predetermined amount of the primary fuel is used in a measured time period, the object of the system being to automatically maintain a 100% load factor of the primary fuel source. A meter continuously monitors consumption of the primary fuel and outputs an electronic flow signal representing consumption of primary fuel. The flow signal is received by a programmable logic controller having a real-time clock whereby consumption of the primary fuel is measured against time. Remote control actuated ball valves mounted in the primary and secondary fuel lines selectively control the flow of primary and secondary fuels to the dual-fuel apparatus. The programmable logic controller is programmed with a measured time period, and a 100% load limit of fuel consumed during the given time

Its very useful to getting started or to ensuring that members of a team are on the same page regarding logic models. The graphic on the first page of Chapter 1 is also a perfect illustration on which to base description of a Lesson Learned and some Hot Tips that inform the Conditional Logic Model approach.. Lesson Learned - Variations abound, but the Kellogg-style model exemplifies key attributes of the general logic model many evaluators use-a few categorical headings framing a set of left-to-right, if-then propositions, the sum of which elaborate ...
New techniques for the prediction of tumour behaviour are needed since statistical analysis has low accuracy and is not applicable to the individual. Artificial intelligence (AI) may provide suitable methods. We have compared the predictive accuracies of neuro-fuzzy modelling (NFM), artificial neural networks (ANN) and traditional statistical methods for the prediction of bladder cancer. Experimental molecular biomarkers, including p53 expression and gene methylation, and conventional clinicopathological data were studied in a cohort of 117 patients with bladder cancer. For all 3 methods, models were produced to predict the presence and timing of tumour progression. Both methods of AI predicted progression with an accuracy ranging from 88-100%, which was superior to logistic regression, and NFM appeared to be better than ANN at predicting the timing of progression.
11. Certainty. Logic has outer limits; thee are many things it cant give you. But logic has no inner limits: like math, it never breaks down. Just as 2 plus 2 are unfailingly 4, so if A is B and B is C, then A is unfailingly C. Logic is timeless and unchangeable. It is certain. It is not certain that the sun will rise tomorrow (it is only very, very probable). But it is certain that it either will or wont. And it is certain that if its true that it will, then its false that it wont.. In our fast-moving world, much of what we learn goes quickly out of date. He who weds the spirit of the times quickly becomes a widower, says G.K. Chesterton. But logic never becomes obsolete. The principles of logic are timelessly true.. Our discovery of these principles, of course, changes and progresses through history. Aristotle knew more logic than Homer and we know more logic than Aristotle, as Einstein knew more physics than Newton and Newton knew more physics than Aristotle.. Our formulations of ...
Second, theres a long history on this issue and its not just atheists who are holding God to the bounds of logic. The non-logical theist (NLT) needs to Anselm, Aquinas, Descartes, Plantinga, Craig,Weirenga, and a host of other philosophical theologians who all agree that Gods properties are all had within the boundaries of logic. Without logic, there wont be any way to say it is true that God is X, because logic is what allows us to demarcate between true and false. Logic and reason are not things you simply discard when the fancy strikes you. Without them, youve got no way to even make an assertion. Without them, human speech acts are just gibberish. To make an assertion, even one like, God is beyond logic, is to assert that there is some state of affairs that obtains in the world. A sentence of the form, X is . . . . says that something-X-is one way and not another. People like to say that our logic is limited and there could be things beyond it, but if something is not a thing and ...
Figure 1- Lip Seal vs. Labyrinth Seal. Labyrinth style seals are most often associated with pump applications. The move to these types of seals for gearboxes is becoming more of a common decision as industry learns of the overall destructive nature of contamination and the superior performance of labyrinth seals.. One other source of contaminant ingress is through the process of oil level checking. Unfortunately, the two most common methods for checking oil levels in gearbox application include either using the supplied dipstick or via a level port that must be removed for level confirmation. Both of these methods have the potential to introduce unwanted contamination to the system. Modifications that may be considered for level checking include the addition of a bulls eye style sight glass into those areas where a level port exists or adding a stand pipe style level gauge to the drain or auxiliary side port of the gearbox. Simply adding a stand pipe level gauge does not fully address the ...

If in a moist environment, then the use of desiccating breathers is recommended. There are two schools of thought on desiccating breathers. Some believe that the exhausted air should be directed straight to the atmosphere, while others believe the warm, dry air can be used to regenerate the desiccant. However, on gearboxes (as compared to hydraulic reservoirs), there is little air flow through the breather. Their general purpose is to allow for changes in volume as a result of top-ups, leakage and temperature-related volume changes (usually during start-up and shutdown). For applications where volume changes are minimal, such as in a gearbox, the bladder type (also known as expansion chamber) of breather is an option. This effectively seals the inside of the gearbox from the atmosphere. The bladder allows for expansion and contraction of the air within the casing as a result of temperature changes. These are especially ideal where high levels of particulate or moisture occur in the environment ...

Gödels speed-up theorem implies that some proofs can get significantly shortened when allowing extra axioms. There are concrete examples of this phenomenon for instance when moving from Peano arithmetic (PA) to PA + consistency(PA), or when moving from PA to second-order arithmetic, see for instance this question.. However, I am not aware of concrete examples of such a dramatic shortening when moving from constructive logic to classical logic. So, is there a known example of a statement that is both true in constructive and classical logic, that has a reasonably short proof in classical logic, but such that any proof in constructive logic would be gigantic (and thus not human-readable)? Ideally, an example would be a statement that would feel concrete enough for the average mathematician, i.e. a statement involving numbers, graphs, algebraic structures, etc. (Friedmans examples on Kruskals tree theorem fit the bill). (I would also be interested in an example that has a simple proof in ...
Kinetics model ENB is a combination of the KinetSync-NB digital logic controller and annunciation module and Kinetics KNB1 brushless motor exciter regulator.
A field programmable gate array includes a programmable routing network, a programmable configuration network integrated with the programmable routing network; and a logic cell integrated with the programmable configuration network. The logic cell includes four two-input AND gates, two six input AND gates, three multiplexers, and a delay flipflop. The logic cell is a powerful general purpose universal logic building block suitable for implementing most TTL and gate array macrolibrary functions. A considerable variety of functions are realizable with one cell delay, including combinational logic functions as wide as thirteen inputs, all boolean transfer functions for up to three inputs, and sequential flipflop functions such as T, JK and count with carry-in.
The Logic of possibility is a peculiarly imaginative, inventive mode of argument. Unlike conventional logic, where the compound of possibilities does not result in a greater possibility or probability, but in a lesser one, the logic of possibility is one by which possibilities are assumed to add up to probability.[1][note 1] Effectively, the logic of possibility replaces one unknown mystery with another.[3][note 2] Darwin was criticised for using this method in The Origin of Species for there in it is assumed that the mere possibility of imagining a series of steps of transition from one condition of organs to another is to be accepted as a reason for believing that such transition has taken place.[5][note 3] Adopting the logic of possibility is an unscientific way of avoiding criticism of a hypothesis and attempt to free it from the burden of proof because a critic could reply to conjecture and imagination only with conjecture of his or her own, what would pointlessly lead nowhere.[1][note 4] ...

In set theory and its applications throughout mathematics, a class is a collection of sets (or sometimes other mathematical objects) that can be unambiguously defined by a property that all its members share. The precise definition of "class" depends on foundational context. In work on Zermelo-Fraenkel set theory, the notion of class is informal, whereas other set theories, such as von Neumann-Bernays-Gödel set theory, axiomatize the notion of "proper class", e.g., as entities that are not members of another entity. A class that is not a set (informally in Zermelo-Fraenkel) is called a proper class, and a class that is a set is sometimes called a small class. For instance, the class of all ordinal numbers, and the class of all sets, are proper classes in many formal systems. Outside set theory, the word "class" is sometimes used synonymously with "set". This usage dates from a historical period where classes and sets were not distinguished as they are in modern set-theoretic terminology. Many ...
