Introduction to Neuro-Fuzzy Systems

Fuzzy units have been brought by means of Zadeh (1965) as a method of representing and manipulating information that used to be no longer distinct, yet relatively fuzzy. Fuzzy good judgment seasoned­ vides an inference morphology that allows approximate human reasoning services to be utilized to knowledge-based platforms. the idea of fuzzy good judgment offers a mathematical energy to seize the uncertainties associ­ ated with human cognitive techniques, akin to pondering and reasoning.

However, the term processing optimization is less likely to be confused with other attention-related terminologies, and therefore we chose it as the formal term in Boolean map theory. Carefully examining the rationale of Kim and Cave (1995) can help to clarify the conceptual distinction between processing optimization and selection. In their study, the observers performed a primary task of visual search among a set of items and a secondary task of detecting the presence of a probe dot. The most important rationale was that if attention had been paid to the target in the visual search task, then the detection of the probe dot would be better when it resided on the target than when it resided on a distractor.
