Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Fuzzy Systems and Artificial Intelligence (AI) has wide applications in different control systems and optimization algorithms. AI is widely used in microgrids, robots, biologic systems, etc. Hence, the current Special Issue on Advanced Computing Methods for Fuzzy systems and Neural Networks comprises topics related to recent developments in Artificial Intelligence including:

  • Machine learning (neural networks, deep nets, reinforcement learning, federated learning);
  • Knowledge representation in machines;
  • Reasoning (rule-based systems, logical systems, fuzzy systems, formal specification and verification);
  • Mathematical analysis, mathematical programming, functional analysis, constraint satisfaction;
  • Heuristic methods (Bio- and nature-inspired computing, theorem proving);
  • Imprecise and uncertain reasoning (Bayesian, fuzzy approaches, etc.);
  • High-performance computing methods, edge, fog, cloud computing, IoT;
  • Distributed ledgers and blockchains.

The engineering applications include:

  • Natural language and speech processing;
  • Computer vision;
  • Distributed multi-agent systems, unmanned vehicles;
  • Agent-based modelling and simulation;
  • Autonomous driving;
  • Renewable energy, smart grids, E-vehicles;
  • Smart homes, smart cities, and smart future;
  • Hazard modelling and mitigation;
  • Manufacturing and Industry 4.0;
  • Remote sensing and operations.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Economic forecasting is crucial since it benefits many different parties, such as governments, businesses, investors, and the general public. This paper presents a novel methodology for forecasting business cycles using an autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA), a popular linear model in time series forecasting, and a neural network with weighted fuzzy membership functions (NEWFM) as a forecasting model generator. The study used a dataset that included seven components of the leading composite index, which is used to predict positive or negative trends in several economic sectors before the GDP is compiled. The preprocessed time series data comprising the leading composite index using ARIMA were used as input vectors for the NEWFM to predict comprehensive business fluctuations. The prediction capability significantly improved through the duplicated refining process of the dataset using ARIMA and NEWFM. The combined ARIMA and NEWFM techniques exceeded ARIMA in both classification and prediction, yielding an accuracy of 91.61%. Full article

Typhoons often cause huge losses, so it is significant to accurately predict typhoon tracks. Nowadays, researchers predict typhoon tracks with the single step, while the correlation of adjacent moments data is small in long-term prediction, due to the large step of time. Moreover, recursive multi-step prediction results in the accumulated error. Therefore, this paper proposes to fuse reanalysis images at the similarly historical moment and predicted images through Laplacian Pyramid and Discrete Wavelet Transform to reduce the accumulated error. That moment is determined according to the difference in the moving angle at predicted and historical moments, the color histogram similarity between predicted images and reanalysis images at historical moments and so on. Moreover, reanalysis images are weighted cascaded and input to ConvLSTM on the basis of the correlation between reanalysis data and the moving angle and distance of the typhoon. And, the Spatial Attention and weighted calculation of memory cells are added to improve the performance of ConvLSTM. This paper predicted typhoon tracks in 12 h, 18 h, 24 h and 48 h with recursive multi-step prediction. Their MAEs were 102.14 km, 168.17 km, 243.73 km and 574.62 km, respectively, which were reduced by 1.65 km, 5.93 km, 4.6 km and 13.09 km, respectively, compared with the predicted results of the improved ConvLSTM in this paper, which proved the validity of the model.
