Soft Computing Methods in Human Sciences - Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing 134 (Paperback)Vesa A. Niskanen (author)
- We can order this
An in-depth look at soft computing methods and their applications in the human sciences, such as the social and the behavioral sciences. Soft computing methods - including fuzzy systems, neural networks, evolutionary computing and probabilistic reasoning - are state-of-the-art methods in theory formation and model construction. The powerful application areas of these methods in the human sciences are demonstrated, including the replacement of statistical models by simpler numerical or linguistic soft computing models and the use of computer simulations with approximate and linguistic constituents.
"Dr. Niskanen's work opens new vistas in application of soft computing, fuzzy logic and fuzzy set theory to the human sciences. This book is likely to be viewed in retrospect as a landmark in its field"

From the reviews:
"Dr. Niskanens work opens new vistas in application of soft computing, fuzzy logic and fuzzy set theory to the human sciences. This book is likely to be viewed in retrospect as a landmark in its field" - Lotfi A. Zadeh, University of California, Berkeley.
"Niskanen ... breaks new ground in soft computing, and his book is one of just a few studies that focus on soft computing methods and fuzzy logic with respect to applications in the human sciences, namely, the social and behavioral sciences. ... Numerous figures and tables provide useful information throughout. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty." (D. J. Gougeon, CHOICE, April, 2004)
