Fuzzy CoCo: Balancing accuracy and interpretability of fuzzy models by means of coevolution Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract. In this chapter we present Fuzzy CoCo, a fuzzy modeling technique based on cooperative coevolution, conceived to provide high numeric precision (accuracy) while incurring as little a loss of linguistic descriptive power (interpretability) as possible. The search for interpretability is represented by several constraints taken into account when designing the evolutionary algorithm, which induce the drive for accuracy. Interpretability- oriented fuzzy modeling must conduct two separate but intertwined search processes:(1) …
