Designing Type-2 Fuzzy Systems Using the Interval Type-2 Fuzzy C-Means Algorithm

Part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence book series (SCI, volume 547)


In this work, the Interval Type-2 Fuzzy C-Mean (IT2FCM) algorithm was used for the design of Type-2 Fuzzy Inference Systems using centroids and fuzzy membership matrices for the lower and upper bound of the interval obtained by the IT2FCM algorithm in each data clustering realized by this algorithm, with these elements obtained by IT2FCM algorithm we design the Mamdani, and Sugeno Fuzzy Inference systems for classification of data sets and time series prediction.
