The commemorative event entitled "The Genius of the Century" dedicated to the memory of Lutfi Zadeh (Lutfi Ragim Aleskerzade), world-renowned scientist, founder of the theory of fuzzy logic in artificial intelligence, a professor emeritus at the University of California Berkley, honorary chairman of the Azerbaijani diaspora organizations in the United States, was held at Azerbaijan University. Professors, teachers, students and guests of the university attended the event.
- The logic of Lutfi Zadeh is also the logic of tolerance
Asif Pashayev, the dean of the School of Information and Communication Technologies, spoke about the life and scientific activity of the prominent scientist. Speaking about the essence of the theory of fuzzy logic, dean noted that in the last years of his life the great scientist engaged in scientific activity has five more theories. His ideas, innovations and theories are aimed at the development of mankind and the improvement of well-being.
Asif Pashayev also informed the participants of the event about the practical importance of the theory of fuzzy logic and its application and emphasized that it is applied to the economy, medicine, all aspects of technology and even to conflict resolution. Dean said: "For this reason, logic of Lutfi Zadeh is also the logic of tolerance".
- Lutfi Zadeh should be proud of every Azerbaijani
Prof. Yusif Gasimov, pro-rector on scientific affairs of the University, shared interesting and informative information about the theory, development and essence of the theory. The vice-rector spoke about the research and propagation of heritage of Lutfi Zadeh, about the work done in the field of "Azerbaijaniization" in the global sense, and also about the interesting moments and hobbies of his daily life.

The event ended with a speech by Reikhan Shikhlinskaya, the guest lecturer, PhD, Associate Professor, Senior Research Fellow, Mathematical Modeling and Automated Systems Department of Applied Mathematical Science Research Institute, who has been working for many years on the theory of fuzzy logic. The guest noted that "Zadeh Logic" was not accepted by the US scientific community for 20 years and attracted the attention of Japanese scientists. All his ideas have already been confirmed, and this theory has penetrated all areas of science and technology all over the world.
Reikhan Shikhlsnaya stated that the problem of artificial intelligence has not been met unequivocally in the world and there were cautious approach to this issue. According to her, there are those who argue that this logic will be the end of humanity, leading to serious arguments. However, in all cases, artificial intelligence has become part of our lives and we are in the high-tech era, and we must accept that reality.
- The book "My friend Mimi" is dedicated to Lutfi Zadeh
Reikhan Shikhlsnaya, as a propagandist of artificial intelligence, has said that she has applied it to literature as well, and for this she has written the book under the title "Dostum Mimi". One of the characters of the book devoted to Lutfi Zadeh - the old professor was thought to be the prologue of Lutfi Zadeh.The contents of the book are as follows: "Professor makes a brain for a mouse, creates artificial intelligence, and the mouse starts to speak like a man. But because of the weak memory of the professor, he forgets the mouse, and the mouse goes out into the street. All the adventures begin after that".
