In the 1950s, the mathematically oriented electrical engineer, Lotfi A. Zadeh, investigated system theory, and in the mid-1960s, he established the theory of Fuzzy sets and systems based on the mathematical theorem of linear separability and the pattern classification problem. Contemporaneously, the psychologist, Frank Rosenblatt, developed the theory of the perceptron as a pattern recognition machine based on the starting research in so-called artificial intelligence, and especially in research on artificial neural networks, until the book of Marvin L. Minsky and Seymour Papert disrupted this research program. In the 1980s, the Parallel Distributed Processing research group requickened the artificial neural network technology. In this paper, we present the interwoven historical developments of the two mathematical theories which opened up into fuzzy pattern classification and fuzzy clustering. View Full-Text
