Neuro-fuzzy Rough Classifier Ensemble
The paper proposes a new ensemble of neuro-fuzzy rough set classifiers. The ensemble uses fuzzy rules derived by the Adaboost metalearning. The rules are used in an ensemble of neuro-fuzzy rough set systems to gain the ability to work with incomplete data (in terms of missing features). This feature is not common among different machine learning methods like neural networks or fuzzy systems. The systems are combined into the larger ensemble to achieve better accuracy. Simulations on a well-known benchmark showed the ability of the proposed system to perform relatively well.
