Abstract / Synopsis

Neuro-fuzzy inference engine and/or system is knowledge based data processing system and can manage the human reasoning course and create decisions based on uncertainty and imprecise situations. Neuro-fuzzy systems are globally employed for pattern recognition, industrial plant control, system predictions, modeling and other decision making purposes. Neuro-fuzzy systems are very popular among researchers in various advanced promising fields to help solve problems with a small number of inputs (three or less). However, there are limitations faced by all popular neuro-fuzzy inference system architectures when they are applied to systems with a large number of inputs (more than three). One of the vital significant issues for constructing a high quality neuro-fuzzy system is the creation of the knowledge base, which mainly consists of membership functions and fuzzy rules. This thesis proposes a framework of modified adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference engine (MANFIE) for a diversity of practical applications in order to resolve the benchmark problems of a large number of inputs datasets. A modified apriori algorithm was employed to reduce the number of clusters effectively on the basis of common data in the clusters of every input to obtain a minimal set of decision rules based on datasets. The Takagi-Sugeno-Kang (TSK) type fuzzy inference system was chosen and constructed by an automatic generation of clusters as well as membership functions and minimal rules through the use of hybrid fuzzy clustering and the modified apriori algorithms respectively. The developed TSK type fuzzy inference engine is called modified adaptive fuzzy inference engine (MAFIE) and its parameters were then adjusted by the hybrid learning algorithm using adaptive neural network architecture towards improved performance which is called MANFIE. The performance of MANFIE was compared with existing methods in a diversity of practical benchmark applications such as pattern classifications, time series predictions, modeling with inverse learning control and mobile robot navigation. The MANFIE has shown the ability to reduce and form the robust minimal rules (Rules reduced on average 97.95% and 96.90% accuracy for pattern classifications, rules reduced on average 97.15%, 75% and 98.43% for time series predictions, modeling with inverse learning control and mobile robot navigation respectively) to make an appropriate structure and minimize the root mean square error (RMSE - 0.024, 0.149 for time series predictions, 0.007 for modeling with learning control, 0.027 for mobile robot navigation) with the best accuracy. The results of benchmark problems have shown improvement, competitiveness and satisfaction by showing a better system performance index with a less number of rules in each high input application. This study suggests that the MANFIE is a suitable modified framework as an adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference engine and is ready to be applied to practical application problems.
