TITLE

Interval Type-2 Fuzzy Decision Making

SPEAKERBob John, ASAP, LUCID, School of Computer Science, University of Nottingham
PROFILE

Prof. Bob John joined the University of Nottingham in 2013 as the Head of the Automated Scheduling, Optimisation and Planning research group on the LANCS initiative in the School of Computer Science. Bob is a member of the newly formed Lab for Uncertainty in Data and Decision Making. He is a member of the EPSRC Peer Review College and a Senior Member of the IEEE. A leading researcher in type-2 fuzzy logic, he was Co- General Chair of 2007 FUZZ-IEEE International Conference. He is a member of various editorial boards and associate editor of Soft Computing. He won Outstanding IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems paper 2010 (for a paper in 2007). With over 6000 Google scholar citations, and an h-index of 36 Bob has an international research profile in the field of theoretical and practical fuzzy logic. He currently holds grants from the EU and Innovate UK.

ABSTRACTThis talk will start with an introduction to type-2 fuzzy sets and some of the pros and cons of their deployment. The body of the talk will present some new ideas on using interval type-2 fuzzy sets to inform decision making. In particular Bob will discuss how interval type-2 fuzzy sets can be used where risk that the decision maker is prepared to take is reflected in the decision making process. This research is new and he will present two simple examples to show how this approach.
