Fuzzy Neural Nets

Part of the Studies in Fuzziness and Soft Computing book series (STUDFUZZ, volume 25)


This chapter, and the next three chapters, are a fuzzification of Chapters 3, 4 and 5. In this chapter we fuzzify neural nets (Chapter 3). In the next chapter we fuzzify the first approximation results (Chapter 4) into the second approximation results. Hybrid neural netsh (Chapter 5) are fuzzified into hybrid fuzzy neural nets in Chapters 9 and 10.

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
