The primary objective of this paper is to put forward a general framework under which clear definitions of immune operators and their roles are provided. To this aim, a novel Population Adaptive Based Immune Algorithm (PAIA) inspired by Clonal Selection and Immune Network theories for solving multi-objective optimization problems (MOP) is proposed. The(More)
The Sheffield Intelligent Ventilator Advisor is a hybrid knowledge-and-model-based advisory system designed for intensive care ventilator management. It consists of a top-level fuzzy rule-based module to give the qualitative component of the advice, and a lower-level model-based module to give the quantitative component of the advice. It is structured to(More)
Intelligent systems have appeared in many technical areas, such as consumer electronics, robotics and industrial control systems. Many of these intelligent systems are based on fuzzy control strategies which describe complex systems mathematical models in terms of linguistic rules. Since the 1980s new techniques have appeared from which fuzzy logic has been(More)
Many synergies have been proposed between soft-computing techniques, such as neural networks (NNs), fuzzy logic (FL), and genetic algorithms (GAs), which have shown that such hybrid structures can work well and also add more robustness to the control system design. In this paper, a new control architecture is proposed whereby the on-line generated fuzzy(More)
OBJECTIVE Part II of this research study is concerned with the development of a closed-loop simulation linking the patient model as well as the fuzzy relational classifier already introduced in Part I with a control algorithm. The overall architecture is in fact a system advisor, which provides information to the anaesthetist about the adequate(More)
In recent years, much research has been done on the use of fuzzy systems in medicine. The fuzzy rule-bases have usually been derived after extensive discussion with the clinical experts. This takes a lot of time from the clinical experts and the knowledge engineers. This paper presents the use of the adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) in(More)
