An in-depth description of the current state of the art in linguistic computation

Computing with words is a fascinating new way of looking at problems related to knowledge representation, symbolic reasoning, natural language, and intelligent control and systems using the concepts of fuzzy sets and fuzzy logic. Offering important insights into designing a system that can cope with the complexities of the natural world, Computing with Words is the first book to present research with a fuzzy logic description.

Researchers have dubbed the twenty-first century the "century of semantics," and this timely volume is a response to the need and demand for a book on the evolving topic of computing with words. The chapters are written by leading researchers within the fuzzy research community and provide a complete overview of theory, current technology, and potential applications. A larger view of semiotics and intelligence systems as they relate to computing with words is also presented.

Drawing from the foundations of Lotfi Zadeh’s theory of fuzzy sets and fuzzy logic, Computing with Words offers extensive coverage of fuzzy expert systems, while also including substantial materials on related issues in order to increase the fundamental and archival values of Zadeh’s theory. Researchers in fuzzy logic, information science, and linguistic computation will find Computing with Words an essential source of information.
