An alternative entropy-based approach to evolving fuzzy neural network growth


Owheo G34 - 1:00 pm, Friday 31 July


In this seminar we present an alternative method for how entropy can be used to regulate the growth of a particular type of evolving connectionist system, namely the Evolving Fuzzy Neural Network (EFuNN). Previous work conducted showed promising results but there were areas identified where improvements could be made in terms of the eventual size of the resulting EFuNN as compared with its accuracy and increasing the role that entropy plays in governing how the EFuNN learns.

We present some preliminary results from experiments using two benchmark classification data sets. The results of this work attempt to provide further insights into approaches for incremental learning systems.
