In this thesis we will present a model for an adaptive intelligent system that is able to handle the irrational sets and with it takes on the challenge. The model will show how we can have a set of hypotheses to which we assign certain beliefs to create a belief profile and with it predict the state of the world. For the belief profile we can intelligently create new hypotheses to predict even better or to compensate for the irrational behavior of the world. The world changes under time and context, so the system needs to keep track of it by modeling the irrational sets and provide a mechanism for handling them.
