approximate reasoning

GC: n

CT: International Journal of Approximate Reasoning is dedicated to the dissemination of research results from the field of approximate reasoning and its applications, with emphasis on the design and implementation of intelligent systems for scientific and engineering applications. Approximate reasoning is computational modeling of any part of the process used by humans to reason about natural phenomena.The journal welcomes archival research papers, surveys, short notes and communications, and book reviews. Current areas of interest include, but are not limited to, applications and/or theories pertaining to computer vision, engineering and expert systems, fuzzy logic and control, information retrieval and database design, machine learning, neurocomputing, pattern recognition and robotics.The journal is affiliated with the North American Fuzzy Information Processing Society (NAFIPS).
