Tutorial Title: Advances in Fuzzy Min-Max Neural Networks And Applications

Name and Affiliation Speaker:  Dr. Swati Vijay Shinde, Professor and Head of IT Department, Pimpri Chinchwad College of Engineering, Pune

Duration: 2.5 Hrs.

To enable the participants to understand and implement the different fuzzy min-max neural networks.

Participants will understand in detail the architecture and learning mechanism of very interesting and useful kind of hybrid neural network called Fuzzy Min-Max Neural Network. Also, participants will get familiar with the advancements in fuzzy min-max neural network.

Importance of neuro-fuzzy Architectures, Desirable properties of good classifier, Fuzzy Min-max Neural Network: Architecture, Learning Algorithm, Implementation results, briefing of Advanced fuzzy Min-max Neural Network.

A Brief Statement of the Relevance of the proposed workshops/tutorial to ISDA 2017:
As the conference focuses on Intelligent System design and applications, the proposed workshop will discuss the very important kind of Neural Network called Fuzzy Min-Max neural network that has the capability of learning in a single epoch and also has a very important characteristic of online training. Thus, Fuzzy Min-Max Neural Network is a very efficient solution to the design of Intelligent Systems in many applications.
