In this paper, first we present a new explanation for the relation between logical circuits and artificial neural networks, logical circuits and fuzzy logic, and artificial neural networks and fuzzy inference systems. Then, based on these results, we propose a new neuro-fuzzy computing system which can effectively be implemented on the memristor-crossbar structure. One important feature of the proposed system is that its hardware can directly be trained using the Hebbian learning rule and without the need to any optimization. The system also has a very good capability to deal with huge number of input-out training data without facing problems like overtraining.
Terrorism has led to many problems in Thai societies, not only property damage but also civilian casualties. Predicting terrorism activities in advance can help prepare and manage risk from sabotage by these activities. This paper proposes a framework focusing on event classification in terrorism domain using fuzzy inference systems (FISs). Each FIS is a decision-making model combining fuzzy logic and approximate reasoning. It is generated in five main parts: the input interface, the fuzzification interface, knowledge base unit, decision making unit and output defuzzification interface. Adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) is a FIS model adapted by combining the fuzzy logic and neural network. The ANFIS utilizes automatic identification of fuzzy logic rules and adjustment of membership function (MF). Moreover, neural network can directly learn from data set to construct fuzzy logic rules and MF implemented in various applications. FIS settings are evaluated based on two comparisons. The first evaluation is the comparison between unstructured and structured events using the same FIS setting. The second comparison is the model settings between FIS and ANFIS for classifying structured events. The data set consists of news articles related to terrorism events in three southern provinces of Thailand. The experimental results show that the classification performance of the FIS resulting from structured events achieves satisfactory accuracy and is better than the unstructured events. In addition, the classification of structured events using ANFIS gives higher performance than the events using only FIS in the prediction of terrorism events.
User knowledge modeling systems are used as the most effective technology for grabbing new user's attention. Moreover, the quality of service (QOS) is increased by these intelligent services. This paper proposes two user knowledge classifiers based on artificial neural networks used as one of the influential parts of knowledge modeling systems. We employed multi-layer perceptron (MLP) and adaptive neural fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) as the classifiers. Moreover, we used real data contains the user's degree of study time, repetition number, their performance in exam, as well as the learning percentage, as our classifier's inputs. Compared with well-known methods like KNN and Bayesian classifiers used in other research with the same data sets, our experiments present better performance. Although, the number of samples in the train set is not large enough, the performance of the neuro-fuzzy classifier in the test set is 98.6% which is the best result in comparison with others. However, the comparison of MLP toward the ANFIS results presents performance reduction, although the MLP performance is more efficient than other methods like Bayesian and KNN. As our goal is evaluating and reporting the efficiency of a neuro-fuzzy classifier for user knowledge modeling systems, we utilized many different evaluation metrics such as Receiver Operating Characteristic and the Area Under its Curve, Total Accuracy, and Kappa statistics.
This paper describes application of information granulation theory, on the analysis of hydrocyclone perforamance. In this manner, using a combining of Self Organizing Map (SOM) and Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System (NFIS), crisp and fuzzy granules are obtained(briefly called SONFIS). Balancing of crisp granules and sub fuzzy granules, within non fuzzy information (initial granulation), is rendered in an open-close iteration. Using two criteria, "simplicity of rules "and "adaptive threoshold error level", stability of algorithm is guaranteed. Validation of the proposed method, on the data set of the hydrocyclone is rendered.
The system's ability to adapt and self-organize are two key factors when it comes to how well the system can survive the changes to the environment and the plant they work within. Intelligent control improves these two factors in controllers. Considering the increasing complexity of dynamic systems along with their need for feedback controls, using more complicated controls has become necessary and intelligent control can be a suitable response to this necessity. This paper briefly describes the structure of intelligent control and provides a review on fuzzy logic and neural networks which are some of the base methods for intelligent control. The different aspects of these two methods are then compared together and an example of a combined method is presented.
