I have used what amounts to Fuzzy Logic in medicine, using the
fuzzy principles in building a system which measures the quality
of medical care. Because medical records are incomplete, inaccurate,
illogical, and inconsistent, we had to revert to fuzzy principles in
getting quantitative measures of quality. Classical statistical
approaches simply did NOT work.
