This paper provides a detailed review of the important and growing role that fuzzy sets of type-2 play in knowledge representation and inferencing with fuzzy systems. As well as an up-to-date review of the work in this area, examples are provided that demonstrate how type-2 sets can help with both knowledge representation and inferencing. The paper also reports on the use of type-2 sets in a medical application and summarizes the other type-2 applications reported in the literature.
