Human behavioral modeling requires an ability to represent and manipulate imprecise cognitive concepts. It also needs to include the uncertainty and unpredictability of human action. We discuss the appropriateness of fuzzy sets for representing human centered cognitive concepts. We describe the technology of fuzzy systems modeling and indicate its the role in human behavioral modeling. We next introduce some ideas from the Dempster-Shafer theory of evidence. We use the Dempster-Shafer theory to provide a machinery for including randomness in the fuzzy systems modeling process. This combined methodology provides a framework with which we can construct models that can include both the complex cognitive concepts and unpredictability needed to model human behavior.
