Abstract

The Matrix Controlled Inference Engine (MACIE) style expert system uses a knowledge base automatically generated from a set of crisp training examples. However, when viewed from a fuzziness perspective, it is seen that the Pocket Algorithm which generates the knowledge base operates nondeterministically. Thus we have the fuzzy generation of a crisp expert system, rather than the usual crisp generation of a fuzzy expert system. It is also shown how MACIE can directly implement fuzzy expert systems.
