    "Fuzzy logic" is a way of designing computer products to think more like a human. Today, computers mostly look at information very literally and can't go outside the path of information that it now has. For example, if someone's name was spelled "McCarthy," and another name came up that was spelled "McCatrhy," a computer today would assume those were two completely different names. With fuzzy logic, the computer would look outside the raw data and possibly see that the second name was misspelled.

    This sort of "humanistic" thinking could save us a lot of time and effort by finding information and performing actions that are not exactly in line with the data. Imagine a computer flying an airplane that can take all the data, look at the weather and terrain around it, and make decisions about how and where to fly next. It is also the way that computers can become more like thinking machines.

    In regular logic something is true or false. In fuzzy logic something can be partially true or false.
