Reviews and Testimonials

Targeting scientists, doctors, engineers, physicians, and researchers, and the infrastructure that supports them, this book incorporates various disease diagnosing techniques using fuzzy expert systems (FES), which converts user-supplied human language rules to their mathematical equivalents, thus providing quicker and cheaper solutions to problems involving ambiguity and uncertainty. Twelve chapters are divided into three sections: concepts and approaches; innovations and technologies; applications and cases.
