Artificial Intelligence


The nature magazine was in the past a well respected general purpose scientific journals which covered a wide variety of topics from physics, biology and medicine. But in the last year the situation has become worse and many low quality submissions which are dealing with uncertainty were accepted. Mostly from the subject of Fuzzy logic[1] and Fuzzy mathematics[2] which is rejected by serious researchers as a pseudo science.

It's important to make clear that the fuzzy boom from the early 1990s is over and the subject doesn't convinced the Artificial Intelligence community anymore. Unfortunately, the peer review system of Nature for checking the quality of incoming submissions is working different. One possible reason is, that the magazine is using a Fuzzy system to check if a fuzzy paper should be accepted ..., but this is only a hypothesis.
