建構一個第二型類神經模糊系統包含兩個階段：架構鑑別(structure identification)與參數鑑別(parameter identification)。在架構鑑別階段，一個自建構式模糊分群演算法被用來將輸入-輸出訓練資料分成數個模糊群聚，其概念是利用在輸入及輸出空間上的相似度測試來產生模糊群聚，而每個模糊群聚的歸屬函數則是根據其所包含的資料之平均值及標準差來定義。之後，結合奇異值分解最小平方估計法，每一個模糊群聚可以被萃取出一條第二型TSK型式的模糊“若-則”法則，以組成一個初步的第二型模糊法則庫，此法則庫可以直接使用於第二型模糊推論，也可以根據這些模糊法則來建立一個第二型TSK型式的模糊類神經網路。在參數鑑別階段，我們發展一個混合式學習演算法來對模糊類神經網路進行學習，以調整這些模糊法則。此演算法結合了粒子群優法(particle swarm optimization, PSO)及奇異值分解最小平方估計法，分別用來調整前鑑部參數及後鑑部參數。實驗結果顯示，經由混合式學習演算法修正過的第二型模糊法則可以增加預測精確度，而且本論文所提第二型類神經模糊系統優於區間第二型類神經模糊系統及第一型類神經模糊系統。除此之外，我們應用第二型類神經模糊系統進行台灣股市預測，實驗結果也顯示我們的預測系統優於其他方法。摘要(英)We propose a novel approach for building a type-2 neuro-fuzzy system from a given set of input-output training data. For an input pattern, a corresponding crisp output of the system is obtained by combining the inferred results of all the rules into a type-2 fuzzy set which is then defuzzified by applying a type reduction algorithm. Karnik and Mendel proposed an algorithm, called KM algorithm, to compute the centroid of an interval type-2 fuzzy set efficiently. Based on this algorithm, Liu developed a centroid type-reduction strategy to do type reduction for type-2 fuzzy sets. A type-2 fuzzy set is decomposed into a collection of interval type-2 fuzzy sets by α-cuts. Then the KM algorithm is called for each interval type-2 fuzzy set iteratively. However, the initialization of the switch point in each application of the KM algorithm is not a good one. In this thesis, we present an improvement to Liu's algorithm. We employ the result previously obtained to construct the starting values in the current application of the KM algorithm. Convergence in each iteration except the first one can then speed up and type reduction for type-2 fuzzy sets can be done faster. The efficiency of the improved algorithm is analyzed mathematically and demonstrated by experimental results.

Constructing a type-2 neuro-fuzzy system involves two major phases, structure identification and parameter identification. We propose a method which incorporates self-constructing fuzzy clustering algorithm and a SVD-based least squares estimator for structure identification of type-2 neuro-fuzzy modeling. The self-constructing fuzzy clustering method is used to partition the training data set into clusters through input-similarity and output-similarity tests. The membership function associated with each cluster is defined with the mean and deviation of the data points included in the cluster. Then applying SVD-based least squares estimator, a type-2 fuzzy TSK IF-THEN rule is derived from each cluster to form a fuzzy rule base. After that a fuzzy neural network is constructed. In the parameter identification phase, the parameters associated with the rules are then refined through learning. We propose a hybrid learning algorithm which incorporates particle swarm optimization and a SVD-based least squares estimator to refine the antecedent parameters and the consequent parameters, respectively. We demonstrate the effectiveness of our proposed approach in constructing type-2 neuro-fuzzy systems by showing the results for two nonlinear functions and two real-world benchmark datasets. Besides, we use the proposed approach to construct a type-2 neuro-fuzzy system to forecast the daily Taiwan Stock Exchange Capitalization Weighted Stock Index (TAIEX). Experimental results show that our forecasting system performs better than other methods.關鍵字(中)奇異值分解最小平方估計法 模糊分群演算法 型態降階 KM演算法 粒子群優法 第二型類神經模糊系統 第二型模糊集合 關鍵字(英)SVD-based least-squares estimator particle swarm optimization fuzzy clustering type reduction Type-2 fuzzy set type-2 neuro-fuzzy system Karnik-Mendel algorithm 論文目次論文審定書. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . i
