EMCSR 98 Tutorial:
Applications of Fuzzy Set Theory and Fuzzy Logic in Medicine
Fuzzy set theory and fuzzy logic have a number of characteristics
that make them highly suitable to model uncertain, vague, and incomplete information
upon which medical concept forming, state interpretation, as well as diagnostic
and therapeutic decision making is usually based. First, linguistic medical entities
including entities with temporal properties can be defined as first or second degree
fuzzy sets. Second, fuzzy logic offers reasoning methods capable of drawing certain as
well as approximate inferences. Third, fuzzy automata may be used as high
level monitoring devices.
University of Vienna Medical School, Austria
The tutorial will cover a number of developed knowledge-based systems
