Hi,

I do not know whether this is the appropriate forum, but this is best which
I know for this question. Kindly excuse me if it is not suited for this group.

I believe there is a field of science which deals with calculations where
accuracy is not very important. For example our brains do lot of calculations
in our daily life. But most of them are not very accurate, but great accuracy
is also not needed in daily life. Take the case of applying brakes while
driving a car. The brain calculates when to start braking, the amount to
which the brake pedals must be pushed etc. These calculations are not accurate
they are just a guess. These values are calculated and repeated adjusted in
a closed loop control fashion.

I want to know more about the field which deals in this. Is there a
relationship between fuzzy logic and what I am talking about?.
Any information relating to this would be of great help.

I am a newbie to AI. So pardon me if the above does not make any sense.

S.Satyanath
