Different studies have proposedmethods formining fuzzy association rules fromquantitative data, where themembership functions were assumed to be known in advance. However, it is not an easy task to know a priori the most appropriate fuzzy sets that cover the domains of quantitative attributes for mining fuzzy association rules. This paper thus presents a(More)
Recently, multi-objective evolutionary algorithms have been applied to improve the difficult tradeoff between interpretability and accuracy of fuzzy rule-based systems. It is known that both requirements are usually contradictory, however, these kinds of algorithms can obtain a set of solutions with different trade-offs. This contribution analyzes different(More)
This work proposes the application of Multi-Objective Genetic Algorithms to obtain Fuzzy Rule-Based Systems with a better trade-off between interpretability and accuracy in linguistic fuzzy modelling problems. To do that, we present a new post-processing method that by considering selection of rules together with tuning of membership functions gets(More)
Linguistic fuzzy modeling in high-dimensional regression problems poses the challenge of exponential-rule explosion when the number of variables and/or instances becomes high. One way to address this problem is by determining the used variables, the linguistic partitioning and the rule set together, in order to only evolve very simple, but still accurate(More)
In this paper, we propose an index that helps preserve the semantic interpretability of linguistic fuzzy models while a tuning of the membership functions (MFs) is performed. The proposed index is the aggregation of three metrics that preserve the original meanings of the MFs as much as possible while a tuning of their definition parameters is performed.(More)
Recently, a new linguistic rule representation model was presented to perform a genetic lateral tuning of membership functions. It is based on the linguistic 2-tuples representation model, that allows the symbolic translation of a label considering an unique parameter. It involves a reduction of the search space that eases the derivation of optimal models.(More)
Data mining is most commonly used in attempts to induce association rules from transaction data. Most previous studies focused on binary-valued transaction data. Transaction data in real-world applications, however, usually consists of quantitative values. In the last years, the fuzzy set theory has been applied to data mining for finding interesting(More)
