This paper presents an experimental study on the performance of online fuzzy classifiers. First, a formulation is given for the fuzzy classifier that is used in this paper. Then, online learning techniques that were proposed in the machine learning community are applied for the fuzzy classifier. As there are several parameters that should be specified by humans in the fuzzy classifiers, a series of computational experiments are conducted in order to investigate the effect of those parameters on the classification performance of the online fuzzy classifiers. It is shown that the arrangement of fuzzy if-then rules dramatically improve the on-line classification performance.
