I think this takes a very control-oriented view of fuzzy
rule-based systems. The common elements between (most)
artificial neural networks and fuzzy rule-based systems is that
they accept inputs and they deliver (hopefully meaningful)
outputs. Both types of system are associators. Whether they are
used to model system functionality or to build control structures
is a separate issue.
