[Pharo-users] R: Fuzzy Thinking in Smalltalk

Hi Cedrick,


this version is an evolution of an application that I presented maybe at 3° or 4° ESUG held and promoted in Università Cattolica di Brescia, were I was professor of O.R.

After that, I implemented 3 or 4 new versions using some algorithms I created.

I have been very lucky becouse I found a real application in foot-ball major league in Italy and I undersood the importance this field.

Than, I added genetic algorithm to my implementation in order to optimize the application and (as I had experince in stock exchange field) I developed  the application I have sent to Richard.

If you are interested to the application, I should be pleased to share my experience with everyone could be interested, but only if we can SHARE our experiences and, possibly to create commercial application to be sold.

Anyway, if you want to work in this field, I will be happy to share my experience with you

Anyway, if I can say my opinion, the observation ridicolous.

Even though the article is interesting, there is no mention of the word 'Pharo' anywhere in the article, nor in any of the 3 slide presentations. Nor is there any Pharo or even Smalltalk code to be seen.



It is interesting indeed and I also agree that at least, if we had some code to see, that would be ok to me, because people can decide to port eventually.


I’m interested in all tool that manage uncertainty. Instead of Fuzzy Logic, I chose The Transferable Belief Model [1] 10y ago, (a derivative of Dempster Shafer Theory). 

But this is probably different in essence, also it seems that it goes further that fuzzy logic since I see some genetic algorithms mentions. 


I’d be interested though to look and try your system (and eventually port it to pharo if the licence is MIT).  The term fuzzy world sounds nice to me.

It is very well possible that you have an application in Pharo, if so, I and everybody on this list would be *very* interesting is learning more about it.


Sure, also the thread was not easy to get. Do not take it personally, but mailing-list have to be friendly moderated ;-)


Is your code open source ?
