Summary and Info
This book presents new concepts and implementations of Computational Intelligence (CI) systems (based on neuro-fuzzy and fuzzy neural synergisms) and a broad comparative analysis with the best-known existing neuro-fuzzy systems as well as with systems representing other knowledge-discovery techniques such as rough sets, decision trees, regression trees, probabilistic rule induction etc. This presentation is preceded by a discussion of the main directions of synthesizing fuzzy sets, artificial neural networks and genetic algorithms in the framework of designing CI systems. In order to keep the book self-contained, introductions to the basic concepts of fuzzy systems, artificial neural networks and genetic algorithms are given. This book is intended for researchers and practitioners in AI/CI fields and for students of computer science or neighbouring areas.
