A novel algorithm for fuzzy rule induction in data mining (2013)
Journal Article
Afifi, A. (2014). A novel algorithm for fuzzy rule induction in data mining. Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part C: Journal of Mechanical Engineering Science, 228(5), 877-895. https://doi.org/10.1177/0954406213492273

Rule induction as a method of constructing classifiers is of particular interest to data mining because it generates models in the form of If-Then rules which are more expressive and easier for humans to comprehend and check. Several induction algori... Read More about A novel algorithm for fuzzy rule induction in data mining.
