Could it be that it's either a silly idea or the most profound
unrecognized discovery of the century? I've been working in this field
for a number of years now and have never had the need for fuzzy
functions. However, I did hear a presentation on the topic by Dr.
David Brubaker at the Embedded Systems Fuzzy Logic Conerence a few
years ago. You might look for the proceedings.
