1. Some Measures Relating Partitions Useful for Computational Intelligence

Ronald R. Yager
Pages: 1 - 18
SOME MEASURES RELATING PARTITIONS USEFUL FOR COMPUTATIONAL INTELLIGENCE We investigate a number of measures relating partitions. One class of measures we consider are congru- ence measures. These measures are used to calculate the similarity between two partitionings. We provide a number of examples...

2. Word Similarity from Dictionaries: Inferring Fuzzy Measures from Fuzzy Graphs

Vicenc Torra, Yasuo Narukawa
Pages: 19 - 23
WORD SIMILARITY FROM DICTIONARIES: INFERRING FUZZY MEASURES FROM FUZZY GRAPHS The computation of similarities between words is a basic element of information retrieval systems, when retrieval is not solely based on word matching. In this work we consider a measure between words based on dictionaries....

3. Assessment of Strategic R&D Projects for Car Manufacturers Based on the Evidential Reasoning Approach

Xin-Bao Liu, Mi Zhou, Jian-Bo Yang, Shan-Lin Yang
Pages: 24 - 49
Assessment of strategic R&D projects is in essence a multiple-attribute decision analysis (MADA) prob- lem. In such problems, qualitative information with subjective judgments of ambiguity is often provided by people together with quantitative data that may be imprecise or incomplete. A few approaches...

4. Team Situation Awareness Using Web-based Fuzzy Group Decision Support Systems

Jie Lu, Guangquan Zhang, Fengjie Wu
Pages: 50 - 59
Situation awareness (SA) is an important element to support responses and decision making to crisis problems. Decision making for a complex situation often needs a team to work cooperatively to get consensus awareness for the situation. Team SA is characterized including information sharing, opinion...

5. From Fuzzy Clustering to a Fuzzy Rule-Based Classification Model

Enrico Zio, Piero Baraldi, Irina Crenguta Popescu
Pages: 60 - 76
The applicability in practice of a diagnostic tool is strongly related to the physical transparency of the un- derlying models, for the interpretation of the relationships between the involved variables and for direct model inspection and validation. In this work, a methodology is developed for transforming...

6. Intelligent Interaction for Human-Friendly Service Robot in Smart House Environment

Z. Zenn Bien, Hyong-Euk Lee, Jun-Hyeong Do, Yong-Hwi Kim, Kwang-Hyun Park, Seung-Eun Yang
Pages: 77 - 93
The smart house under consideration is a service-integrated complex system to assist older persons and/or people with disabilities. The primary goal of the system is to achieve independent living by various robotic devices and systems. Such a system is treated as a human-in-the loop system in which human-...

7. Current Computational Trends in Equipment Prognostics

J. Wesley Hines, Alexander Usynin
Pages: 94 - 102
CURRENT COMPUTATIONAL TRENDS IN EQUIPMENT PROGNOSTICS The article overviews current trends in research studies related to reliability prediction and prognostics. The trends are organized into three major types of prognostic models: failure data models, stressor models, and degradation models. Methods...
