Not Exactly

In Praise of Vagueness

Kees van Deemter

  • Explores a basic but often unnoticed aspect of our lives - the vagueness inherent in many of our expressions and concepts
  • Uses familiar everyday examples in a wide-ranging discussion touching on symbolic logic, game theory, computing, and biology
  • Demonstrates why the concept of vagueness is both useful and unavoidable in human behaviour
  • Looks at challenges arising from this very human way of thinking and expression in various areas, including speech recognition and designing more human-seeming robots
