Fuzzy Rule-Based Systems are appropriate tools to deal with classification problems due to their good properties. However, they can suffer a lack of system accuracy as a result of the uncertainty inherent in the definition of the membership functions and the limitation of the homogeneous distribution of the linguistic labels. The aim of the paper is to improve the performance of Fuzzy Rule-Based Classification Systems by means of the Theory of Interval-Valued Fuzzy Sets and a post-processing genetic tuning step. In order to build the Interval-Valued Fuzzy Sets we define a new function called weak ignorance for modeling the uncertainty associated with the definition of the membership functions. Next, we adapt the fuzzy partitions to the problem in an optimal way through a cooperative evolutionary tuning in which we handle both the degree of ignorance and the lateral position (based on the 2-tuples fuzzy linguistic representation) of the linguistic labels. The experimental study is carried out over a large collection of data-sets and it is supported by a statistical analysis. Our results show empirically that the use of our methodology outperforms the initial Fuzzy-Rule Based Classification System. The application of our cooperative tuning enhances the results provided by the use of the isolated tuning approaches and also improves the behavior of the genetic tuning based on the 3-tuples fuzzy linguistic representation.

Effect of Atanassov's operators on the properties of the intuitionistic fuzzy relations Burillo López, Pedro; Bustince Sola, Humberto (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 1995) Artículo / ArtikuluaIn this paper we study the effect of Atanassov's operator on the properties of properties reflexive, symmetric, antisymmetric, perfect antisymmetric and transitive intuitionistic fuzzy relations. We finish the paper analysing ...
IVTURS: A linguistic fuzzy rule-based classification system based on a new interval-valued fuzzy reasoning method with tuning and rule selection Sanz Delgado, José Antonio; Fernández, Alberto; Bustince Sola, Humberto; Herrera, Francisco (IEEE, 2013) Artículo / ArtikuluaInterval-valued fuzzy sets have been shown to be a useful tool for dealing with the ignorance related to the definition of the linguistic labels. Specifically, they have been successfully applied to solve classification ...
Using the Choquet integral in the fuzzy reasoning method of fuzzy rule-based classification systems Barrenechea Tartas, Edurne; Bustince Sola, Humberto; Fernández Fernández, Francisco Javier; Paternain Dallo, Daniel; Sanz Delgado, José Antonio (MDPI, 2013) Artículo / ArtikuluaIn this paper we present a new fuzzy reasoning method in which the Choquet integral is used as aggregation function. In this manner, we can take into account the interaction among the rules of the system. For this reason, ...
