On the expanded information contents for the YUBITSUKIYI system and the Dementia situation taking account of Fuzzy concept of Markov’s information source

Masahiro Aruga, Kiyotaka Takagi, Shuichi Kato

In authors’ previous papers the essential meaning of the ubiquitous system has been presented as it is in the idea that the functions that the today’s ordinary and healthy society lives have lost should be recovered as before or supported up to their ordinary average levels. On the other hand the authors have discussed the design technique and direction of the expanded EMR (Electric or Electronic Medical Record), and at same time, in parallel, have developed the communication system in which the “YUBITSUKIYI (which is the name of communication tool for blind deaf persons. See Fig.3)” system is included. Therefore the authors have proposed that the Life Support System to be developed from the expanded EMR system should be restructured and synthesized and used on the basis of the essential meaning of the ubiquitous concept. And by using this Life Support System the lost functions are able to be recovered as before and supported up to the ordinary average levels. Now when the authors treat the dementia situation, by considering an ontology of the situation it is treated as a kind of handicapped situation from the point of view that the dementia situation is the situation in which the function to be gained before has been lost. As a result it is able to be estimated that the Life Support System can be used to find and support the dementia situation, especially to find and support the early dementia situation not only of the blind deaf persons, but also of the ordinary persons. And also it is able to be estimated that the dementia situation can be treated quantitatively by this Life Support System through the communication process and the consideration of information processing. From the point of views of communication process and information processing the authors have already presented the new information contents able to be applied to the dementia situation, at present it is becoming more clear that the new concepts are able to be applied to a kind of human error situation of the ordinary people. On such new information contents at same time the authors have studied these concepts in parallel for three directions as main directions. The first of them is the direction that such information concepts themselves must be newly considered from the entirely different view point, and the second of them is the direction that such concepts should be studied on the philosophical view point (for example, Peirce’s semiotics and its interpretant etc.), and the third of them is the direction that these concepts are treated on the basis of Fuzzy concepts and expanded from the ordinary Shannon’s information theory by the use of Fuzzy system’s idea. In this paper the discussion of the third one is developed over the discussion which was already described in the authors’ previous papers. From the third one of discussing direction authors have already studied the new information contents on the basis of Fuzzy concepts and have gained some important ideas and relations among the information structures and the meaning and concepts of such factors. At this time, expanding such results it is described that the Fuzzy model expanded from the model of ordinary Markov’s information source is introduced into the object of Fuzzy set model and some relations of the Fuzzy information system derived from the Markov’s information source are described.
