Some of what you describe, I'd say, is heuristics as well. My understanding
is fuzzy logic is more used in a static environment, and uses a set of
rules, and isn't predictive, but heuristics is predictive.
Here's a decent description of fuzzy logic:
To keep it on topic ;-) I don't know how fuzzy logic could really be
incorporated into the scanning process...in the scanner focusing?...but it's
a pretty easy task, since it's a fixed scanner point, and doesn't need to be
Scanning is pretty deterministic, so I don't believe it would benefit from
any AI technologies...though I believe GF claims to use "AI" in their
algorithms, but that isn't really in the scanning of the images though.
