Similarity Reasoning in the presence of vague information is becoming fundamental in several research areas and, in particular, in the Semantic Web. Fuzzy Formal Concept Analysis (FFCA) is a generalization of Formal Concept Analysis (FCA) for modeling uncertainty information. Although FFCA has become very interesting for supporting different activities for the development of the Semantic Web, in the literature it is usually addressed at a technical level and intended for a restricted audience. This paper proposes a similarity measure for FFCA concepts. The key notions underlying the proposed approach are presented informally, in order to reach a broad audience of readers.

    In this paper, the formal triple I inference method based on logic system W*UL is investigated. Firstly, a new complete formal system W*UL , which is the schematic extension of uninorm logic system UL , is given. A complete many-sorted first-order formal system W*UL ms for fuzzy predicate logic...

    We propose a method for modeling uncertainty in dynamical systems which is based on the theory of fuzzy sets. Corresponding models appear in the form of fuzzy differential equations. Such models are interpreted from a probabilistic point of view as generalized models of bounded uncertainty....
