Explain the neuro-fuzzy controller with example.
Neuro Fuzzy controller: A
hybrid system that combines a neural network and a rule-based expert system is called
a neural expert system (or a connection is the expert system).
• In neural networks, one cannot select a single synaptic weight as a discrete
piece of knowledge.
• Here knowledge is embedded in the entire network; it cannot be broken
into individual pieces, and any change of a synaptic
weight may lead to unpredictable results.
17 CO4 K6
• The heart of a neural expert system is the inference engine.
• Neuro–fuzzy systems combine the semantic transparency of rule-based
fuzzy systems with the learning capability of neural networks.
• A neuro-fuzzy system is a neural network which is functionally equivalent to
a fuzzy inference model.
• It can be trained to develop IF-THEN fuzzy rules and determine membership
functions for input and output variables of the system.

• It controls the information flow in the system and initiates inference over
the neural knowledge base. A neural inference engine also ensures
approximate reasoning.
• Neural expert systems use a trained neural network in place of the
knowledge base.
• The input data does not have to precisely match the data which is used in
network training. This ability is called approximate reasoning.
• Expert knowledge can be incorporated into the structure of the neuro-fuzzy

18 Explain the gentic algorithm with example
Genetic algorithm and its applications:
 A class of probabilistic optimization algorithms which is inspired by the
biological evolution process.
 Particularly well suited for hard problems where little is known about the
underlying search space.
 Widely-used in business, science and engineering.
 A genetic algorithm maintains a population of candidate solutions for the
CO5 K5
problem at hand, and makes it evolve by iteratively applying a set of
stochastic operators.
 Selection replicates the most successful solutions found in a population at a
rate proportional to their relative quality.
 Recombination (Crossover) decomposes two distinct solutions and then
randomly mixes their parts to form novel solutions.
 Mutation randomly perturbs a candidate solution.
 GA Cycle: (12)
