CISC 490 Topics in Computing Science

A topic for the winter term of the 2015-2016 academic year is Fuzzy Theory and Fuzzy Algorithms. Since its first formalization in the 1960's, fuzzy theory has developed as a coherent mathematical theory of uncertainty. Fuzzy algorithms have been shown to be practical, easy to develop, implement and maintain, and in many cases superior in performance to more traditional algorithms.

Course Summary

History of fuzzy theory; fundamental concepts of fuzzy theory: sets, relations, and logic operators. Approximate reasoning, fuzzy inference, possibility theory. Fuzzy control systems. Advanced topics may include fuzzy pattern recognition, fuzzy expert systems, financial systems, graph theory, optimization.
Prerequisites: (CISC-204/3.0 and CISC-365/3.0) or permission of the instructor (Robin Dawes).
