A Humble Tribute to 50 Years of Fuzzy Sets

2. A Comprehensive Literature Review of 50 Years of Fuzzy Set Theory

Cengiz Kahraman, Basar Öztaysi, Sezi Cevik Onar
Pages: 3 - 24
Fuzzy sets have a great progress in every scientific research area. It found many application areas in both theoretical and practical studies from engineering area to arts and humanities, from computer science to health sciences, and from life sciences to physical sciences. In this paper, a comprehensive...

3. Fuzzy Bi-level Decision-Making Techniques: A Survey

Guangquan Zhang, Jialin Han, Jie Lu
Pages: 25 - 34
Bi-level decision-making techniques aim to deal with decentralized management problems that feature interactive decision entities distributed throughout a bi-level hierarchy. A challenge in handling bi-level decision problems is that various uncertainties naturally appear in decision-making process....

4. From Fuzzy Models to Granular Fuzzy Models

Witold Pedrycz
Pages: 35 - 42
In this study, we offer a general view at the area of fuzzy modeling and elaborate on a new direction of system modeling by introducing a concept of granular models. Those models constitute a generalization of existing fuzzy models and, in contrast to existing models, generate results in the form of...

5. Classifying image analysis techniques from their output

C. Guada, D. Gómez, J.T. Rodríguez, J. Yáñez, J. Montero
Pages: 43 - 68
In this paper we discuss some main image processing techniques in order to propose a classification based upon the output these methods provide. Because despite a particular image analysis technique can be supervised or unsupervised, and can allow or not the existence of fuzzy information at some stage,...

6. A View on Fuzzy Systems for Big Data: Progress and Opportunities

Alberto Fernández, Cristobal José Carmona, María José del Jesus, Francisco Herrera
Pages: 69 - 80
Currently, we are witnessing a growing trend in the study and application of problems in the framework of Big Data. This is mainly due to the great advantages which come from the knowledge extraction from a high volume of information. For this reason, we observe a migration of the standard Data Mining...

7. An Overview on Fuzzy Modelling of Complex Linguistic Preferences in Decision Making

Rosa M. Rodríguez, Álvaro Labella, Luis Martínez
Pages: 81 - 94
Decision makers involved in complex decision making problems usually provide information about their preferences by eliciting their knowledge with different assessments. Usually, the complexity of these decision problems implies uncertainty that in many occasions has been successfully modelled by means...

8. Fuzzy Approaches to Flexible Querying in XML Retrieval

Stefania Marrara, Gabriella Pasi
Pages: 95 - 103
In this paper we review some approaches to flexible querying in XML that apply several techniques among which Fuzzy Set Theory. In particular we focus on FleXy, a flexible extension of XQuery-FT that was developed as a library on the open source engine Base-X. We then present PatentLight, a tool for...
