Title: Nonlinear context adaptation in the calibration of fuzzy sets
Author: Pedrycz, W
Gudwin, RR
Gomide, FAC
Abstract: In this note we elaborate on the concept and use of context adaptation. The underlying idea hinges upon a nonlinear transformation of an actual reference unit universe of discourse into a subset of reals, say [a, b], that is implied by actually available data (current context). Assuming a collection of fuzzy sets A = {A(1), A(2),...,A(n)} defined over [0, 1], the context adaptation gives rise to a new frame of cognition A' = (A'(1), A'(2),...,A'(g)) expressed over [a,b]. Owing to the inherent nonlinearity of the developed mapping, different elements (fuzzy sets) of A can be ''stretched'' or ''expanded'' according to the given experimental data. Proposed is a neural network as a relevant optimization tool. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science B.V.
