A Method for Designing Flexible Neuro-fuzzy Systems

  • Krzysztof Cpalka
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 4029)


In the paper we develop a new method for designing and reduction of flexible neuro-fuzzy systems. The method allows to reduce number of discretization points in the defuzzifier, number of rules, number of inputs, and number of antecedents. The performance of our approach is illustrated on a typical benchmark.
