About this book

The key idea of this book is that hinging hyperplanes, neural networks and support vector machines can be transformed into fuzzy models, and interpretability of the resulting rule-based systems can be ensured by special model reduction and visualization techniques. The first part of the book deals with the identification of hinging hyperplane-based regression trees. The next part deals with the validation, visualization and structural reduction of neural networks based on the transformation of the hidden layer of the network into an additive fuzzy rule base system. Finally, based on the analogy of support vector regression and fuzzy models, a three-step model reduction algorithm is proposed to get interpretable fuzzy regression models on the basis of support vector regression.

The authors demonstrate real-world use of the algorithms with examples taken from process engineering, and they support the text with downloadable Matlab code. The book is suitable for researchers, graduate students and practitioners in the areas of computational intelligence and machine learning.

Reviews

“This book is very inspiring and provides many detailed motivating examples after each algorithm discussed. This helps theoretically oriented readers to understand the application scenarios, and helps applied readers to better understand the details and power of the algorithms. The book also provides four sections of useful appendixes on cross validation, orthogonal least squares, a model of the pH process, and a model of an electrical water heater.” (Xin Guo, Mathematical Reviews, September, 2017)
