Fuzzy neural networks: between functional equivalence and applicability.

Author information

Darmstadt University of Technology, Department of Computer Engineering, Germany.


Research in fuzzy neural networks, which started from application oriented fuzzy system tuning, then moving to the automatic generation of fuzzy systems from data, is reaching a more mature stage, especially after the proof of functional equivalence of certain fuzzy models and neural networks. It is essential that the applicability of such developments is explored emphasizing the directions that research should follow. It can be shown that the nearest prototype classifier is functionally equivalent to an alternative fuzzy classifier model. Efficient, hardware friendly training algorithms are developed for dynamic generation of an optimum number of nearest prototypes for neural classifiers which enable the generation of fuzzy systems in real time. These systems are tested with complex applications showing the simulation results.
