Fuzzy Logic Reservoir


Make sure your air tanks are full and take a deep breath before diving into this reservoir. Also be sure to string a return line during your exploration or you might never find your way back home. Gems located at this site are marked by a treasure chest -- all others will take you on a cyberdive. Enjoy your trip.

Our Coral Reefs

This portion of the reservoir contains links to the major universities around the world with laboratories or programs dedicated to fuzzy logic. Like coral reefs, these sites are colorful and teeming with life.

Center for Fuzzy Logic, Robotics, and Intelligent Systems Texas A&M University's CFL coordinates research activities at TAMU on fuzzy logic and its application in engineering systems. It also organizes the annual IFIS conference.
BISC Berkely Initiative into Soft Computing at the University of California at Berkeley. BISC has a comprehensive schedule of Conferences around the world.
MSOE Milwaukee School of Engineering Fuzzy Logic Laboratory uses TILShell 3.0 as their primary development tool.
ISIS Image, Speech and Intelligent Systems research group at the University of Southampton, Hampshire, UK.
Fuzzy Systems and Soft Computing at the University of Magdeburg. Available both in English and German.
Signal and Image Processing Institute at the University of University of Southern California.
VLSI & Fuzzy Logic Research Group at The University of Bologna in Bologna, Italy.

The Lost Continent of Atlantis

Well maybe they aren't as exciting as a lost continent but these societies and organizations can help open up new worlds to their members.

ERUDIT European fuzzy information network.
IFSA International Fuzzy Systems Association.
NAFIPS North American Fuzzy Information Processing Society

Underwater Caverns

Finding a resource to assist with the development and demonstration of a new concept can sometimes be as difficult and intimidating as exploring an underwater cavern. The organizations listed here try to light the way.

FLLL - Fuzzy Logic Laboratorium Linz/Hagenberg Fuzzy Logic Pilot and Demonstration Workplace serving the Upper Austrian economy.

Visit With Other Divers

After your dive, relax a while and visit with other cyberdivers. The best place to start is at the comp.ai.fuzzy newsgroup. The resources and archives listed here should help you find some new acquaintences.

Watch Out for the Sharks

Naturally we think the fuzzy logic products manufactured and sold by Ortech Engineering and Togai InfraLogic are the best on the market. However, in case our products don't address your particular application, we are including links to other commercial vendors on the Internet. Just remember to watch out for sharks in these waters.

(As you check out our competitors, be especially wary of claims such as " ...the only tool that..." or "...the first tool to ...". Keep in mind that Togai InfraLogic has been building fuzzy logic development tools since 1988 and see how many of our competitors are bold enough to provide a cross link to our site and invite a comparison with their tools.)
