Fuzzy Neural Network with a Fuzzy Learning Rule Emphasizing Data Near Decision Boundary

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 5552)


A fuzzy LVQ (Learning Vector Quantization), which is based on the fuzzification of LVQ, is proposed. This new fuzzy LVQ puts more emphasis on the input vector near decision boundary than on the input vector far from decision boundary. It prevents the outlier from deteriorating the decision boundary. The proposed fuzzy LVQ is used in the neural network, which has the control structure similar to that of ART(Adaptive Resonance Theory)-1 neural network. The result shows that Supervised IAFC (Integrated Adaptive Fuzzy Clustering) Neural Network 6 yielded fewer misclassifications than LVQ algorithm and backpropagation neural network.
