------------------------------------
This paper proposes a hybrid, genetic algorithm (GA)-based approach to create a fuzzy neural network implementing Takagi-Sugeno fuzzy models. An automatically generated structure is subsequently optimised by a new evolving winner GA based method, where the GA optimises the number of neurons. A hybrid parameter learning approach then adjusts the parameter matrix and the parameters of the membership functions. The importance of the approach is that it can generate a more compact structure than alternative methods, at the expense of being used offline, and is shown to be superior to the OBS (optimal brain surgeon) technique.
