A short survey of main historical developments of systems of fuzzy logic in narrow sense, today under the umbrella of the discipline called Mathematical Fuzzy Logic, arising from teducation-teaching-fuzzy_math-fuzzy_mathematics-fuzzy_set_theory-mathematicians-math_teacher-rmon4614_low.jpghe birth of Zadeh’s fuzzy sets in 1965. Particular attention is devoted to show how the tools of mathematical logic have allowed to define logical systems which form the core of Mathematical Fuzzy Logic and allow for a formalization of some topics included in Zadeh’s agenda spanning from fuzzy sets to approximate reasoning and probability theory of fuzzy events.

My contribute paper titled “Logics for strict coherence and Carnap-regular probability functions” has been recently accepted to be presented at the 17th International Conference on Information Processing and Management of Uncertainty in Knowledge-Based Systems – IPMU 2018.  that will take place in Cádiz, Spain.

Ramón y Cajal

On January 16, I started my Ramón y Cajal research grant at the Artificial Intelligence Research Institute of the Spanish National Research Council placed in UAB campus in Bellaterra, Barcelona. My research activity will be mainly concerned with the development of logics for AI and in particular with logical foundations of uncertainty (the usual thing).

That’s the good news. The bad one is: I need to find a house in Barcelona, and it ain’t easy.
