This paper presents a fuzzy modeling approach for identification of dynamic systems. In particular, a new fuzzy model, the Dynamic Fuzzy Neural Network (DFNN), consisting of recurrent TSK rules, is developed. The premise and defuzzification parts are static while the consequent parts of the fuzzy rules are recurrent neural networks with internal feedback(More)
This paper investigates the usefulness of applying different learning approaches to a problem of telecommunications fraud detection. Five different user models are compared by means of both supervised and unsupervised learning techniques, namely the multilayer perceptron and the hierarchical agglomerative clustering. One aim of the study is to identify the(More)
Pathological discontinuous adventitious sounds (DAS) are strongly related with the pulmonary dysfunction. Its clinical use for the interpretation of respiratory malfunction depends on their efficient and objective separation from vesicular sounds (VS). In this paper, an automated approach to the isolation of DAS from VS, based on their nonstationarity, is(More)
A novel learning algorithm, the Recurrent Neural Network Constrained Optimization Method (RENNCOM) is suggested in this paper, for training block-diagonal recurrent neural networks. The training task is formulated as a constrained optimization problem, whose objective is twofold: (1) minimization of an error measure, leading to successful approximation of(More)
In this paper, an orthogonal least-squares (OLS) based modeling method is developed, named the constrained OLS (C-OLS), for generating simple and e cient TSK fuzzy models. The method is a two-stage model building technique, where both premise and consequent identi cation are simultaneously performed. The fuzzy system is considered as a linear regression(More)
In this work, a dynamic neurofuzzy system for forecasting outgoing telephone calls in a University Campus is proposed. The system comprises modified Takagi–Sugeno–Kang fuzzy rules, where the rules’ consequent parts are small neural networks with unit internal recurrence. The characteristics of the proposed forecaster, which is entitled recurrent neurofuzzy(More)
An application of fuzzy modeling to the problem of telecommunications data prediction is proposed in this paper. The model building process is a two-stage sequential algorithm, based on the Orthogonal Least Squares (OLS) technique. Particularly, the OLS is first employed to partition the input space and determine the number of fuzzy rules and the premise(More)
This paper proposes an object-based segmentation/classification scheme for remotely sensed images, based on a novel variant of the recently proposed Genetic Sequential Image Segmentation (GeneSIS) algorithm. GeneSIS segments the image in an iterative manner, whereby at each iteration a single object is extracted via a genetic-based object extraction(More)
