Fuzzy systems play an important role in the development of intelligent systems due to their ability to model nonlinear system behavior, to deal with non-probabilistic uncertainty and to describe model behavior in natural language, making communication with humans, users and decision makers easier. Therefore, fuzzy systems have found applications in many fields ranging from information systems to healthcare, to business analytics, to data science, to engineering solutions. This Master Class focuses on the recent developments in the theory and applications of fuzzy systems. Four international researchers will touch upon different aspects of fuzzy systems. In addition to listening to their lectures, the Master Class will provide ample opportunity to interact with the speakers and other participants for discussing and exchanging ideas on the field.
