This IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS) teaching video introduces Sorite's Paradox, a paradox involving a heap of sand (or some variation) and the question, "When is a heap of sand is considered a heap vs. a non-heap?"

The answer in response to this question is fuzzy logic. Fuzzy logic is logic based on degrees of truth (0-1) rather than 0s and 1s (true or false). What this means is that something can be both black and white (grey) instead of being just one of those two choices. 

For a full introduction to Fuzzy Logic, please see the IEEE CIS Educational Material web page
