A research project conducted by the University of Missouri and
England’s De Montfort University aims to improve seniors’ quality of
life by developing “fuzzy logic” technology. According to a New York
Times report, fuzzy logic uses computational mathematics to reach
conclusions based on vague information, replicating human decision

resident monitoring systems in assisted living—can then utilize fuzzy
logic technology to distinguish between similar-sounding events. For
example, false alarms in resident care can be reduced because the
combined technology can help distinguish between a resident who has
fallen versus a slammed door or other loud noise.
