Abstract: We show that two probabilistic interpretations of fuzzy sets via random sets and large deviation principles have a common feature: they regard the fuzzy set as a depth function of a random object. Conversely, some depth functions in the literature can be regarded as the fuzzy sets of central points of appropriately chosen random sets.
