Soft Techniques for Bayesian Classification

  • Robert Nowicki
  • Leszek Rutkowski
Part of the Advances in Soft Computing book series (AINSC, volume 19)


In this paper we present a neuro-fuzzy classifier performing a Bayes decision function. The classifier is based on a neuro-fuzzy structure. The rough set theory is incorporated into this structure. It will be shown that a new hybrid system, i.e. rough-neuro-fuzzy classifier, is able to perform classification in the case of missing features.
