This paper deals with inference using multiple patterns. Inference among vague information, e.g. patterns, has caused “explosion of vagueness“. This paper proposes a new mechanism to suppress the increase of vagueness. This paper also proposes a modification method for pattern space based on a new concept of vagueness in patterns. Simulations are done to demonstrate the potentiality of the proposed inference method and the pattern space modification method.
