Fuzzy linear regression is a method of forecasting in an uncertain environment. Unlike regular (crisp) linear regression, which assumes the deviation between the estimated and actual values is due to observation errors, fuzzy linear regression assumes this deviation is due to the fuzziness of the parameters.

This paper presents a use of a neural network for fuzzy linear regression. This network allows the fuzzy regression to be continually optimized after the initial regression has been completed.
Additionally, this paper discusses some of the areas for additional research.
