Supervised learning networks based on a decision-based formulation are explored. More specifically, a decision-based neural network (DBNN) is proposed, which combines the perceptron-like learning rule and hierarchical nonlinear network structure. The decision-based mutual training can be applied to both static and temporal pattern recognition problems. For(More)
Keywords: Fuzzy sliding-mode control Ant colony optimization Ball and beam system a b s t r a c t This paper mainly addresses the balance control of a ball and beam system, where a pair of decoupled fuzzy sliding-mode controllers (DFSMCs) are proposed. The DFSMC has the advantage of reducing the design complexity, in which the coupling dynamics of the(More)
Autoimmune disease is a disorder of immune system due to the over-reaction of lymphocytes against one's own body tissues. Anti-Nuclear Antibody (ANA) is an autoantibody produced by the immune system directed against the self body tissues or cells, which plays an important role in the diagnosis of autoimmune diseases. Indirect ImmunoFluorescence (IIF) method(More)
Indirect immunofluorescence technique applied on HEp-2 cell substrates provides the major screening method to detect ANA patterns in the diagnosis of autoimmune diseases. Currently, the ANA patterns are mostly inspected by experienced physicians to identify abnormal cell patterns. The objective of this study is to design a computer-assisted system to(More)
A new design approach of an adaptive fuzzy terminal sliding mode controller for linear systems with mismatched time-varying uncertainties is presented in this paper. A fuzzy terminal sliding mode controller is designed to retain the advantages of the terminal sliding mode controller and to reduce the chattering occurred with the terminal sliding mode(More)
In this paper, an approach of designing adaptive fuzzy controllers is presented to systematically develop efficient and effective rules for fuzzy controllers. The proposed fuzzy controllers are first designed with two basic fuzzy if-then rules. Then according to the design requirements of the fuzzy control system, new fuzzy if-then rules are inserted into(More)
