Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Zadeh introduced fuzzy set theory in 1965, and many researchers have developed improved fuzzy methods to use in various fields of artificial intelligence, such as fuzzy control and multi-criteria decision making.

The goal of this Special Issue is to attract the latest results from researchers working on theoretical advances in fuzzy sets, fuzzy systems, and decision making and the corresponding industry applications. These results can be obtained from the research of new theoretical knowledge on the discipline itself, or via the construction of fuzzy-/hybrid-based solutions to solve various interdisciplinary tasks.

In this Special Issue, we encourage submissions providing new results in the setting of fuzzy systems and their applications in the artificial intelligence field. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the next keywords (see below).

In previous studies, customer preferences were assumed to be static when modeling their preferences based on online reviews. However, in fact, customer preferences for products are dynamic and changing over time. Few research has been conducted to model dynamic customer preferences as the time series data of customer preference are difficult to be obtained. Based on online reviews, an adaptive neuro fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) was introduced to model customer preferences, which can take into account the fuzzy nature of customers’ emotions and the nonlinearity of the model. However, ANFIS is plagued with black box problems, and the nonlinearity of the model cannot be directly demonstrated. To address the above research issues, a multi-objective chaos optimization algorithm (MOCOA)-based ANFIS approach is proposed to generate customer preferences models by using online reviews, which has explicit nonlinear inputs. Firstly, a sentiment analysis approach is used to derive information from online reviews by periods, which is used as the time series data sets of the proposed model. A MOCOA is combined into ANFIS to identify the nonlinear inputs, which include single items, interactive items, and terms of second order and/or higher-order terms. Consequently, the fuzzy rules in ANFIS are expressed in polynomial form, which allows for the explicit representation of the nonlinearity between customer preferences and product attributes. A case study of sweeping robots is used to compare the validation results of the proposed approach with those of ANFIS, subtractive cluster-based ANFIS, fuzzy c-means-based ANFIS, and K-means-based ANFIS. Moreover, the proposed approach provides better performance than the other four approaches in terms of mean relative error and variance of error. Full article

The paper addresses a parameter identification problem for discrete-time stochastic systems models with multiplicative and additive noises. Stochastic systems with additive and multiplicative noises are considered when solving many practical problems related to the processing of measurements information. The purpose of this work is to develop a numerically stable gradient-free instrumental method for solving the parameter identification problems for a class of mathematical models described by discrete-time linear stochastic systems with multiplicative and additive noises on the basis of metaheuristic optimization and singular value decomposition. We construct an identification criterion in the form of the negative log-likelihood function based on the values calculated by the newly proposed SVD-based Kalman-type filtering algorithm, taking into account the multiplicative noises in the equations of the state and measurements. Metaheuristic optimization algorithms such as the GA (genetic algorithm) and SA (simulated annealing) are used to minimize the identification criterion. Numerical experiments confirm the validity of the proposed method and its numerical stability compared with the usage of the conventional Kalman-type filtering algorithm. Full article
