For me a computer is only a medium in which to play out a series of
instructions (the algorithm or the program), some of which are mathematical
The fact that a computer is binary based (derived from its gate or switching
architecture) does not exclude its application to a program that has a fuzzy
The program is in itself a virtual computer, a layer sitting on top of the
hardware layer underneath. In this regard there is no relation at all
between the logic of the hardware and the logic employed by the program.
A more interesting question might be could there be fuzzy hardware ?
