Selection and correction of weighted rules based on \L ukasiewicz's fuzzy logic with evaluated syntax

Jiří IvánekDOI: 10.14736/kyb-2017-1-0113


The core of the expert knowledge is typically represented by a set of rules (implications) assigned with weights specifying their (un)certainties. In the paper, a method for hierarchical selection and correction of expert's weighted rules is described particularly in the case when Łukasiewicz's fuzzy logic with evaluated syntax for dealing with weights is used.
