—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)
Linguistic fuzzy modelling, developed by linguistic fuzzy rule-based systems, allows us to deal with the modelling of systems by building a linguistic model which could become interpretable by human beings. Linguistic fuzzy modelling comes with two contradictory requirements: interpretability and accuracy. In recent years the interest of researchers in(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)
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)
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)
Different studies have proposed methods for mining fuzzy association rules from quantitative data, where the membership 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(More)
One important Artificial Intelligence tool for automatic control is the use of fuzzy logic controllers, which are fuzzy rule-based systems comprising expert knowledge in form of linguistic rules. These rules are usually constructed by an expert in the field of interest who can link the facts with the conclusions. However, this way to work sometimes fails to(More)
This paper focuses on the use of multi-objective evolutionary algorithms to develop smartly tuned fuzzy logic controllers dedicated to the control of heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems, energy performance, stability and indoor comfort requirements. This problem presents some specific restrictions that make it very particular and complex(More)
