Hybrid Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System for Diagnosing the Liver Disorders Artificial Intelligence

In this study, a hybrid method based on an Adaptive Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) and Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) for diagnosing Liver disorders (ANFIS-PSO) is introduced. This smart diagnosis method deals with a combination of making an inference system and optimization process which tries to tune the hyper-parameters of ANFIS based on the data-set. The Liver diseases characteristics are taken from the UCI Repository of Machine Learning Databases. The number of these characteristic attributes are 7, and the sample number is 354. The right diagnosis performance of the ANFIS-PSO intelligent medical system for liver disease is evaluated by using classification accuracy, sensitivity and specificity analysis, respectively. According to the experimental results, the performance of ANFIS-PSO can be more considerable than traditional FIS and ANFIS without optimization phase.

Soft Computing Techniques for Diagnostics and Prognostics

AAAI Conferences

This paper presents methods and tools which can be used within the framework of diagnostics and prognostics to accommodate imprecision of real systems. We outline the advantages and disadvantages of the different techniques and show how they can be used in a hybrid fashion to complement each other. We conclude the paper with a number of successful real world examples.

Modular Neuro-Fuzzy Networks Used in Explicit and Implicit Knowledge Integration

AAAI Conferences

A framework of new unified neural and neuro-fuzzy approaches for integrating implicit and explicit knowledge in neuro-symbolic systems is proposed. In the developed hybrid system, training data set is used for building neurofuzzy modules, and represents implicit domain knowledge. On the other hand, the explicit domain knowledge is represented by fuzzy rules, which are directly mapped into equivalent neural structures. Three methods to combine the explicit and implicit knowledge modules are proposed.

A Survey of Artificial Intelligence for Prognostics

AAAI Conferences

Integrated Systems Health Management includes as key elements fault detection, fault diagnostics, and failure prognostics. Whereas fault detection and diagnostics have been the subject of considerable emphasis in the Artificial Intelligence (AI) community in the past, prognostics has not enjoyed the same attention. The reason for this lack of attention is in part because prognostics as a discipline has only recently been recognized as a game-changing technology that can push the boundary of systems health management. This paper provides a survey of AI techniques applied to prognostics. The paper is an update to our previously published survey of data-driven prognostics.

Unsupervised Rule Generation for Maintenance of a Diagnostic System

AAAI Conferences

Phone: (518) 387-7423 Abstract A common limitation of diagnostic systems is their dependence on the training data. It is essential that the diagnostic system should be maintainable over time. In most practical applications the data used for training a diagnostic system does not cover the entire spectrum of faults that a system could encounter. Thus the system should be able to generate rules for new "unknown" faults. An effective methodology for a minimally supervised diagnostic system is developed and explained in this paper.
