Fuzzy Cognitive Map as a generally recognized intelligent tool has been widely used in the data mining and the machine leaning fields. This paper reviewed the present research situation of Fuzzy Cognitive Map at home and abroad in recent years. Firstly, it reviewed the development progress of Fuzzy Cognitive Map with its advantage over other fuzzy learning methods, followed by the research papers indexed by EI database, ACM database and the SCI database. Then it summarized the classification and the learning methods of Fuzzy Cognitive Map. Furthermore, the applications of Fuzzy Cognitive Map are analysed finally. We hope our work help the people to have a general understanding and push the Fuzzy Cognitive Map forward.
