Invited tutorial on software for fuzzy computing

Fuzzy systems have been used widely thanks to their ability to successfully solve a wide range of problems in different application fields. However, their replication and application requires a high level of knowledge and experience. Furthermore, few researchers publish the software and/or source code associated with their proposals, which is a major obstacle to scientific progress in other disciplines regarding both academy and industry. In recent years, most fuzzy system software (FSS) has been developed in order to facilitate the use of fuzzy systems. Some software is commercially distributed but most software is available as free and open source software, reducing such obstacles and providing many advantages: quicker detection of errors, innovative applications, faster adoption of fuzzy systems, etc. As advised by the Task Force on Fuzzy Systems Software in the Fuzzy Systems Technical Committee of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, researchers and developers should think carefully about some critical considerations (interoperability, novelty, usability, and relevance) when publishing a new software.
