Symbolical Reasoning about Numerical Data: A Hybrid Approach

Christoph S. Herrmann

By combining methods from artificial intelligence and signal analysis, we have developed a hybrid system for medical diagnosis. The core of the system is a fuzzy expert system with a dual source knowledge base. Two sets of rules are acquired, inductively from given examples and deductively formulated by the physician. A fuzzy neural network serves to learn from sample data and allows to extract fuzzy rules for the knowledge base. A complex signal transformation preprocesses the digital data a priori to the symbolic representation. Results demonstrate the high accuracy of the system in the field of diagnosing electroencephalograms where it outperforms the visual diagnosis by a human expert for some phenomena.
