Fuzzy cognitive maps (FCMs) form a class of graph-oriented fuzzy models describing causal relationships among concepts. In this study, we augment these models by introducing their generalization coming in the form of granular FCMs. In contrast with FCMs, in the granular FCMs, the connections between the nodes (states) are described in the form of information granules, especially intervals and fuzzy sets. Key scenarios in which granular models (and granular FCMs) arise are presented in order to… CONTINUE READING
