Introduction to Type-2 Fuzzy Logic in Neural Pattern Recognition Systems

  • Patricia Melin
Part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence book series (SCI, volume 389)


We describe in this book, new methods for building intelligent systems for pattern recognition using type-2 fuzzy logic and soft computing techniques. Soft Computing (SC) consists of several computing paradigms, including type-1 fuzzy logic, neural networks, and genetic algorithms, which can be used to create powerful hybrid intelligent systems [37, 57]. In this book, we are extending the use of fuzzy logic to a higher order, which is called type-2 fuzzy logic [12]. Combining type-2 fuzzy logic with traditional SC techniques, we can build powerful hybrid intelligent systems that can use the advantages that each technique offers in solving pattern recognition problems [59].
