Fuzzy Expert System for Identifying the Physical Constituents of a Human Body


Background/Objectives: As every individual has a distinct combination of Physical Constituents (Vatt, Pitt and Kapha), understanding this individuality is the essence of diagnosis and treatment in Ayurveda. The proposed work is a stepping stone in this field. Methods/Statistical Analysis: A fuzzy logic based expert system is designed to calculate the physical constituents (VATT, PITT and KAPHA) of a human body. All the required parameters are finalized after consulting an Ayurvedic Expert during knowledge acquisition phase. Findings: The system is implemented using the Fuzzy Logic Toolbox of MATLAB. The accuracy and veracity of the system is evaluated by comparing the outputs of different defuzzification methods. Data collection is performed by survey method and results were highlighted as true and false after verifying from expert. Maximum results depict that the outputs produced by the proposed system matches with those of Ayurvedic Expert. Application/Improvements: The proposed system will guide the physicians to provide the personalized treatment to their patients. This fuzzy based system will prove itself as a learning kit for Ayurveda and Vedic practitioner.
