Re: Holiday and New Year: Greetings

As we approach the beginning of New Year, I should like
to extend to all members of the BISC Group -- near and far -- my
warm greetings for the holiday season and best wishes for the
New Year.

During the past year, the literatures of fuzzy logic, fuzzy
logic applications and soft computing have continued to grow at
an accelerating pace. A number of important books have been
published and numerous conferences have been held. However, a
residue of skepticism is still in evidence. In this connection, an
observation by the late Professor Lipman Bers is of pertinence. He
said "Respectability cannot be conferred; it must be earned."

Respectability, acceptance and recognition will come in
due time. In the meantime, I should like to extend to all of you
my best wishes for health, happiness and productive New Year.

With my warm regards,

Lotfi Zadeh
