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.
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.
For the past few decades, man has been trying to create an intelligent computer which can talk and respond like he can. The task of creating a system that can talk like a human being is the primary objective of Automatic Speech Recognition. Various Speech Recognition techniques have been developed in theory and have been applied in practice. This paper discusses the problems that have been encountered in developing Speech Recognition, the techniques that have been applied to automate the task, and a representation of the core problems of present day Speech Recognition by using Fuzzy Mathematics.
Fault diagnosis and failure prognosis are essential techniques in improving the safety of many manufacturing systems. Therefore, on-line fault detection and isolation is one of the most important tasks in safety-critical and intelligent control systems. Computational intelligence techniques are being investigated as extension of the traditional fault diagnosis methods. This paper discusses the Temporal Neuro-Fuzzy Systems (TNFS) fault diagnosis within an application study of a manufacturing system. The key issues of finding a suitable structure for detecting and isolating ten realistic actuator faults are described. Within this framework, data-processing interactive software of simulation baptized NEFDIAG (NEuro Fuzzy DIAGnosis) version 1.0 is developed. This software devoted primarily to creation, training and test of a classification Neuro-Fuzzy system of industrial process failures. NEFDIAG can be represented like a special type of fuzzy perceptron, with three layers used to classify patterns and failures. The system selected is the workshop of SCIMAT clinker, cement factory in Algeria.
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.
