Fuzzy logic has been instrumental in many technological developments with significant economic impact ranging from unmanned helicopters and subway systems to household appliances. The project aims to develop fuzzy  logic to enhance its fitness as a tool to investigate real-life relations, such as ’favourability’ in the views of a consumer group with respect to a product, that come in grades or degrees. It expects to produce an innovative study of logical languages for databases containing graded information and finite domains. Expected outcomes include new logical methods in the area of many-valued logics which should provide a platform for the enhancement of artificial intelligence applications which implement fuzzy logic in modelling imprecise language.

This project is open to students with a background in logic, philosophy or mathematics (who have some familiarity with the material from MATH3306 and PHIL3110).
