Article
Fuzzy Logic Systems have been popular in fields such as control, knowledge representation, and modeling. They involve linguistic information to represent a human perception in the form of Fuzzy Sets. Those systems are advantageous in cases where it is desired to have some interpretability. However, there are some processes, such as optimization, wh...
Article
Interpretable machine learning is trending as it aims to build a human-understandable decision process. There are two main types of machine learning systems: white-box and black-box models. White-box models are inherently interpretable but commonly suffer from under-fitting phenomena; on the other hand, black-box models perform quite well in a wide...

This study intends to establish the main relations between topographic characteristics of the watershed and the main parameters of the unit hydrograph measured at the outlet. It looks to remove the subjectivity found in traditional synthetic methods and the trial and error setting of the main parameters of the hydrograph. The work was developed thr...

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) consists of sensors, networks, and services to connect and control production systems. Its benefits include supply chain monitoring and machine failure detection. However, it has many vulnerabilities, such as industrial espionage and sabotage. Furthermore, many IIoT devices are resource-constrained, which im...
Article
Throughout previous design proposals of Interval Type-2 Fuzzy Logic Systems most of the research work concentrates on optimal design to best fit data behavior and rarely focus on the inner model essence of Type-2 Fuzzy Systems, which is uncertainty. In this way, failing to focus on this key aspect, which is how much uncertainty exists within the mo...

Due to the rapid technological evolution and communications accessibility, data generated from different sources of information show an exponential growth behavior. That is, volume of data samples that need to be analyzed are getting larger, so the methods for its processing have to adapt to this condition, focusing mainly on ensuring the computati...
Chapter
This work attempts to contribute to shortening the gap between the original conception of ubicomp and the current state of the art. Thus, the original concept has been analyzed to identify one of the main advances required to achieve this. Authors consider that context-awareness is the key element to accomplish this goal and compare the context-awa...

Chapter
In the search of modeling methodologies for complex systems various attempts have been made, and so far, all have been inadequate in one thing or another leading the pathway open for the next better tool. Fuzzy cognitive maps have been one of such tools, although mainly used for decision making in what-if scenarios, they can also be used to represe...

As Granular Computing has gained interest, more research has lead into using different representations for Information Granules, i.e., rough sets, intervals, quotient space, fuzzy sets; where each representation offers different approaches to information granulation. These different representations have given more flexibility to what information gr...

Mobile ad-hoc networks (MANETs) are dynamic by nature; this dynamism comes from node mobility, traffic congestion, and other transmission conditions. Metrics to evaluate the effects of those conditions shine a light on node’s behavior in an ad-hoc network, helping to identify the node or nodes with better conditions of connection. In this paper, we...

Article
The aim of this paper is to show that a Generalized Type-2 Fuzzy Control System can outperform Type-1 and Interval Type-2 Fuzzy Control Systems when external perturbations are present. A Generalized Type-2 Fuzzy System can handle better uncertainty because of the nature of its membership functions, and as such, they are better tailored for situatio...
