This paper introduces granular computing (GrC) into formal concept analysis (FCA). It provides a unified model for concept lattice building and rule extraction on a fuzzy granularity base for different granulations. One of the strengths of GrC is that larger granulations help to hide some specific details, whereas FCA in a GrC context can prevent losses due to concept lattice complexity. However, the number of superfluous rules increases exponentially with the scale of the decision context. To… CONTINUE READING
