The main idea of this book is to present novel connectionist architectures of neuro-fuzzy systems, especially those based on the logical approach to fuzzy inference. In addition, hybrid learning methods are proposed to train the networks. The neuro-fuzzy architectures plus hybrid learning are considered as intelligent systems within the framework of computational and artificial intelligence. The book also provides an overview of fuzzy sets and systems, neural networks, learning algorithms (including genetic algorithms and clustering methods), as well as expert systems and perception-based systems which incorporates computing with words.
