Diagnosis Wavelet-Neuro-Fuzzy System with Adaptive Wavelet Membership Function for Big Data Analysis Tasks

Introduction. The synthesis of the diagnostic wavelet-neuro-fuzzy system (WNFS) is used for the case, when training set volume is comparable with input patterns dimension. These patterns are fed for processing in on-line mode. An architecture of considered NFS consists of the six sequentially-connected layers. 

Method. In the input (zero, receptive) layer of NFS (nх1)-dimensional vector of input signals-patterns x(k) is fed, where k is observation number in initial data set. In this case, it is supposed that all components xi(k) preliminary are modified so that 0<xi(k)<1, and the binary input features have value 0 or 1. The first hidden layer consists of nh membership function and provides fuzzyfication of input variables, the larger the number h , the better approximating properties of WNFS, although it is enough to have h=2 for the binary features.

The second hidden layer  realizes an aggregation of the membership levels, which are computed in the first layer, and consists of h multiplication  units. The third hidden layer is one of the synaptic weights, which are adjusted during the learning process. The proposed WNFS consists of mh tuning weights, where m is a number of the potential classes, one for each system output. 

The fourth hidden layer consists of m+1  summators, which compute sum of output signal of the second and the third hidden layers. In fifth hidden layer, that consists of m division unit normalization of fourth layer output signals is realized. And finally output (sixth) layer consists of m non-linear activation functions, in diagnosis tasks it is reasonable to use the simplest signum-functions, which takes +1  value in case of right diagnosis, and -1 – otherwise. Therefore output system signals yj(k) can take only two values +1 or -1. Thus, if vector signal x(k) is fed on NFS input, the first layer elements compute membership levels, at that usually the bell-shaped (kernel) construction with as membership function nonstrictly local receptive field is used as membership functions. It allows to avoid the appearing of “gaps” in fuzzyficated space.

Results and Conclusion. The diagnostic wavelet neuro-fuzzy system and its adaptive learning algorithm are introduced for solving the pattern recognition, classification, diagnostics tasks etc., under condition when training set value is comparable with input patterns dimension, and these patterns are fed for processing in on-line mode. The feature of proposed systems is significant smaller number of the tuning parameters comparing with the artificial neural networks that solve the same task. The system is characterized by simplicity of the computational implementation, the high speed of learning process, possibility of processing information, which is described in the different scales (interval, ordinal, binary).
