This book is proposing a hybrid algorithm of two fuzzy genetic-based machine learning approaches - Michigan and Pittsburgh - for designing fuzzy rule-based classification systems. The search ability of each approach is examined to efficiently find fuzzy rule-based systems with high classification accuracy. These two approaches are combined into a single hybrid algorithm. The generalization ability of fuzzy rule-based classification systems, designed by the proposed hybrid algorithm is examined on real data sets. Experimental results show that the hybrid algorithm has higher search ability within a population of individual rules and within a population of rule sets.5272 Руб.

This is a wonderfullly mind-bending book that works on so many levels it would definitely reward a second reading. Its premise is pretty strange: in a post-apocalyptic England, turned into an achipelago by global warming, a brutal and backward society is ruled by a religion based on a holy text of "revealed truth," The Book of Dave. Fast-rewind to the present and it soon becomes clear that The Book is the psychotic rantings of a London cabbie of the same name, engraved on stainless steel plates and buried in his estranged wife's garden. The purpose of this insanity is to pass to his son "The Knowledge" of London streets, routes and points of interest that cabbies need to memorize to get their license. Intewoven with this is Dave's worldview, venomously warped by rage at the ex-wife, longing for his "Lost Boy," and the side-effects of a stew of mis-prescribed drugs.1004 Руб.
