Publication Open Access VCI-LSTM: Vector choquet integral-based long short-term memory(IEEE, 2022) Ferrero Jaurrieta, Mikel; Takáč, Zdenko; Fernández Fernández, Francisco Javier; Horanská, Lubomíra; Pereira Dimuro, Graçaliz; Montes, Susana; Díaz, Irene; Bustince Sola, Humberto; Estadística, Informática y Matemáticas; Estatistika, Informatika eta MatematikaShow more Choquet integral is a widely used aggregation operator on one-dimensional and interval-valued information, since it is able to take into account the possible interaction among data. However, there are many cases where the information taken into account is vectorial, such as Long Short-Term Memories (LSTM). LSTM units are a kind of Recurrent Neural Networks that have become one of the most powerful tools to deal with sequential information since they have the power of controlling the information flow. In this paper, we first generalize the standard Choquet integral to admit an input composed by $n$-dimensional vectors, which produces an $n$-dimensional vector output. We study several properties and construction methods of vector Choquet integrals. Then, we use this integral in the place of the summation operator, introducing in this way the new VCI-LSTM architecture. Finally, we use the proposed VCI-LSTM to deal with two problems: sequential image classification and text classification.Show more Publication Open Access Explainable classification methods for fish species detection using hydroacoustic data(IEEE, 2021) Costa, Lucas Tubino Bonifacio; Lucca, Giancarlo; Pereira Dimuro, Graçaliz; Borges, Eduardo N.; Emmendorfer, Leonardo R.; Weigert, Stefan Cruz; Estadística, Informática y Matemáticas; Estatistika, Informatika eta MatematikaShow more This work aims to evaluate explainable classification methods for the detection of fish species from hydroacoustic data acquired by echo sounders at a region near the coastline of south and southeastern Brazil. Decision trees and fuzzy rule-based methods were adopted. The fitted models were evaluated by quality measures based on the performance of the classifiers and also by an expert which analyzed the usefulness of the rules on describing the schools. The models learned by the algorithms performed well for the available data and were able to represent the documented behavior of the species considered in the studied region, according to the literature.Show more Publication Open Access Aggregation functions based on the Choquet integral applied to image resizing(Atlantis Press, 2019) Bueno, Jéssica C. S.; Dias, Camila A.; Pereira Dimuro, Graçaliz; Santos, Helida; Bustince Sola, Humberto; Estatistika, Informatika eta Matematika; Institute of Smart Cities - ISC; Estadística, Informática y MatemáticasShow more The rising volume of data and its high complexity has brought the need of developing increasingly efficient knowledge extraction techniques, which demands efficiency both in computational cost and in accuracy. Most of problems that are handled by these techniques has complex information to be identified. So, machine learning methods are frequently used, where a variety of functions can be applied in the different steps that are employed in their architecture. One of them is the use of aggregation functions aiming at resizing images. In this context, we introduce a study of aggregation functions based on the Choquet integral, whose main characteristic in comparison with other aggregation functions is that it considers, through fuzzy measure, the interaction between the elements to be aggregated. Thus, our main goal is to present an evaluation study of the performance of the standard Choquet integral the and copula-based generalization of the Choquet integral in relation to the maximum and mean functions, looking for results that may be better than the aggregation functions commonly applied. The results of such comparisons are promising, when evaluated through image quality metrics.Show more Publication Open Access On the generalizations of the Choquet integral for application in FRBCs(Springer, 2021) Lucca, Giancarlo; Borges, Eduardo N.; Berri, Rafael A.; Emmendorfer, Leonardo R.; Pereira Dimuro, Graçaliz; Da Cruz Asmus, Tiago; Estadística, Informática y Matemáticas; Estatistika, Informatika eta MatematikaShow more An effective way to cope with classification problems, among others, is by using Fuzzy Rule-Based Classification Systems (FRBCSs). These systems are composed by two main components, the Knowledge Base (KB) and the Fuzzy Reasoning Method (FRM). The FRM is responsible for performing the classification of new examples based on the information stored in the KB. A key point in the FRM is how the information given by the fired fuzzy rules is aggregated. Precisely, the aggregation function is the component that differs from the two most widely used FRMs in the specialized literature. In this paper we provide a revision of the literature discussing the generalizations of the Choquet integral that has been applied in the FRM of a FRBCS. To do so, we consider an analysis of different generalizations, by t-norms, copulas, and by F functions. Also, the main contributions of each generalization are discussed.Show more Publication Open Access Abstract homogeneous functions and consistently influenced/disturbed multi-expert decision making(IEEE, 2021) Santiago, Regivan; Callejas Bedregal, Benjamin; Pereira Dimuro, Graçaliz; Fernández Fernández, Francisco Javier; Bustince Sola, Humberto; Fardoun, Habib; Estadística, Informática y Matemáticas; Estatistika, Informatika eta MatematikaShow more In this paper we propose a new generalization for the notion of homogeneous functions. We show some properties and how it appears in some scenarios. Finally we show how this generalization can be used in order to provide a new paradigm for decision making theory called consistent influenced/disturbed decision making. In order to illustrate the applicability of this new paradigm, we provide a toy example.Show more Publication Open Access Enhancing LSTM for sequential image classification by modifying data aggregation(IEEE, 2021) Takáč, Zdenko; Ferrero Jaurrieta, Mikel; Horanská, Lubomíra; Krivonakova, Nada; Pereira Dimuro, Graçaliz; Bustince Sola, Humberto; Estadística, Informática y Matemáticas; Estatistika, Informatika eta MatematikaShow more Recurrent Neural Networks (RNN) model sequential information and are commonly used for the analysis of time series. The most usual operation to fuse information in RNNs is the sum. In this work, we use a RNN extended type, Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) and we use it for image classification, to which we give a sequential interpretation. Since the data used may not be independent to each other, we modify the sum operator of an LSTM unit using the n-dimensional Choquet integral, which considers possible data coalitions. We compare our methods to those based on usual aggregation functions, using the datasets Fashion-MNIST and MNIST.Show more Publication Open Access d-XC integrals: on the generalization of the expanded form of the Choquet integral by restricted dissimilarity functions and their applications(IEEE, 2022) Wieczynski, Jonata; Fumanal Idocin, Javier; Lucca, Giancarlo; Borges, Eduardo N.; Da Cruz Asmus, Tiago; Emmendorfer, Leonardo R.; Bustince Sola, Humberto; Pereira Dimuro, Graçaliz; Automática y Computación; Automatika eta Konputazioa; Estadística, Informática y Matemáticas; Estatistika, Informatika eta MatematikaShow more Restricted dissimilarity functions (RDFs) were introduced to overcome problems resulting from the adoption of the standard difference. Based on those RDFs, Bustince et al. introduced a generalization of the Choquet integral (CI), called d-Choquet integral, where the authors replaced standard differences with RDFs, providing interesting theoretical results. Motivated by such worthy properties, joint with the excellent performance in applications of other generalizations of the CI (using its expanded form, mainly), this paper introduces a generalization of the expanded form of the standard Choquet integral (X-CI) based on RDFs, which we named d-XC integrals. We present not only relevant theoretical results but also two examples of applications. We apply d-XC integrals in two problems in decision making, namely a supplier selection problem (which is a multi-criteria decision making problem) and a classification problem in signal processing, based on motor-imagery brain-computer interface (MI-BCI). We found that two d-XC integrals provided better results when compared to the original CI in the supplier selection problem. Besides that, one of the d-XC integrals performed better than any previous MI-BCI results obtained with this framework in the considered signal processing problem.Show more Publication Open Access On the normalization of interval data(MDPI, 2020) Santiago, Regivan; Bergamaschi, Flaulles; Bustince Sola, Humberto; Pereira Dimuro, Graçaliz; Da Cruz Asmus, Tiago; Sanz Delgado, José Antonio; Estadística, Informática y Matemáticas; Estatistika, Informatika eta MatematikaShow more The impreciseness of numeric input data can be expressed by intervals. On the other hand, the normalization of numeric data is a usual process in many applications. How do we match the normalization with impreciseness on numeric data? A straightforward answer is that it is enough to apply a correct interval arithmetic, since the normalized exact value will be enclosed in the resulting 'normalized' interval. This paper shows that this approach is not enough since the resulting 'normalized' interval can be even wider than the input intervals. So, we propose a pair of axioms that must be satisfied by an interval arithmetic in order to be applied in the normalization of intervals. We show how some known interval arithmetics behave with respect to these axioms. The paper ends with a discussion about the current paradigm of interval computations.Show more Publication Open Access Fuzzy integrals for edge detection(Springer, 2023) Marco Detchart, Cedric; Lucca, Giancarlo; Pereira Dimuro, Graçaliz; Da Cruz Asmus, Tiago; López Molina, Carlos; Borges, Eduardo N.; Rincon, J. A.; Julian, Vicente; Bustince Sola, Humberto; Estadística, Informática y Matemáticas; Estatistika, Informatika eta MatematikaShow more In this work, we compare different families of fuzzy integrals in the context of feature aggregation for edge detection. We analyze the behaviour of the Sugeno and Choquet integral and some of its generalizations. In addition, we study the influence of the fuzzy measure over the extracted image features. For testing purposes, we follow the Bezdek Breakdown Structure for edge detection and compare the different fuzzy integrals with some classical feature aggregation methods in the literature. The results of these experiments are analyzed and discussed in detail, providing insights into the strengths and weaknesses of each approach. The overall conclusion is that the configuration of the fuzzy measure does have a paramount effect on the results by the Sugeno integral, but also that satisfactory results can be obtained by sensibly tuning such parameter. The obtained results provide valuable guidance in choosing the appropriate family of fuzzy integrals and settings for specific applications. Overall, the proposed method shows promising results for edge detection and could be applied to other image-processing tasks.Show more Publication Open Access Exploring the relationships between data complexity and classification diversity in ensembles(SciTePress, 2021) Formentín Garcia, Nathan; Tiggeman, Frederico; Borges, Eduardo N.; Lucca, Giancarlo; Santos, Helida; Pereira Dimuro, Graçaliz; Estadística, Informática y Matemáticas; Estatistika, Informatika eta MatematikaShow more Several classification techniques have been proposed in the last years. Each approach is best suited for a particular classification problem, i.e., a classification algorithm may not effectively or efficiently recognize some patterns in complex data. Selecting the best-tuned solution may be prohibitive. Methods for combining classifiers have also been proposed aiming at improving the generalization ability and classification results. In this paper, we analyze geometrical features of the data class distribution and the diversity of the base classifiers to understand better the performance of an ensemble approach based on stacking. The experimental evaluation was conducted using 32 real datasets, twelve data complexity measures, five diversity measures, and five heterogeneous classification algorithms. The results show that stacked generalization outperforms the best individual base classifier when there is a combination of complex and imbalanced data with diverse predictions among weak learners.Show more
