HyFIS: HyFIS model building


This is the internal function that implements the hybrid neural fuzzy inference system (HyFIS). It is used to solve regression tasks. Users do not need to call it directly, but just use frbs.learn and predict


HyFIS(data.train, num.labels, max.iter = 10, step.size = 0.01,
  type.tnorm = "MIN", type.snorm = "MAX", type.defuz = "COG",
  type.implication.func = "ZADEH")



a matrix (\(m \times n\)) of normalized data for the training process, where \(m\) is the number of instances and \(n\) is the number of variables; the last column is the output variable. Note the data must be normalized between 0 and 1.


a matrix (\(1 \times n\)), whose elements represent the number of labels (linguistic terms); \(n\) is the number of variables.


the maximal number of iterations.


step size of the gradient descent method.


the type of t-norm. For more detail, please have a look at inference.


the type of s-norm. For more detail, please have a look at inference.


the type of aggregation function. For more detail, please have a look at defuzzifier


a value representing type of implication function. For more detail, please have a look at WM


This method was proposed by J. Kim and N. Kasabov. There are two phases in this method for learning, namely the knowledge acquisition module and the structure and parameter learning. The knowledge acquition module uses the techniques of Wang and Mendel. The learning of structure and parameters is a supervised learning method using gradient descent-based learning algorithms. This function generates a model which consists of a rule database and parameters of the membership functions. The rules of HyFIS use the Mamdani model on the antecedent and consequent parts. Futhermore, HyFIS uses a Gaussian membership function. So, there are two kinds of parameters that are optimized, mean and variance of the Gaussian function.
