Fuzzy Logic

A type of logic that recognizes more than simple true and false values. With fuzzy logic, propositions can be represented with degrees of truthfulness and falsehood. For example, the statement, today is sunny,might be 100% true if there are no clouds, 80% true if there are a few clouds, 50% true if it’s hazy and 0% true if it rains all day.

Fuzzy logic has proved to be particularly useful in expert system and other artificial intelligence applications. It is also used in some spell checkers to suggest a list of probable words to replace a misspelled one.
