Abstract

This contribution is intended as a position paper that favors the viewpoint that inference based on deductive rules (i.e., the rules are interpreted using fuzzy implication) can indeed be considered as a valuable inference scheme in real-world applications. For this purpose, we highlight the basic concepts behind the most common fuzzy inference schemes and demonstrate their interpretation by means of illustrative examples. We conclude that, under some reasonable conditions, deductive inference is able to compete with or even outperform the well-known Mamdani-Assilian inference.
