Technology Lecture: New Approaches to Neuro-Fuzzy Modelling

Date: 04 May 2007 - 04 May 2007

Venue: Auditorium, Tower Block, SIMTech, 71 Nanyang Drive

Over the past decade, artificial intelligence has evolved from a field of laboratory demonstrations to a field of significant commercial value. This invited lecture will introduce new neuro-fuzzy systems (NFS). Firstly, basic NFS structures are presented and flexibility issues are discussed. A high accuracy of flexible neuro-fuzzy systems is emphasised. A new method for designing of such systems is developed. In the second part of the lecture, special neuro-fuzzy systems are studied: two neuro-fuzzy systems, relation neuro-fuzzy systems and rough-neuro-fuzzy systems. Finally, a method for evaluation of neuro-fuzzy systems is described.
