Types of Data
  • Data was precious! Now it is overwhelming ...
  • Statistical data clean, numerical, controlled
    experiments, vector space model.
  • Relational data marketing, finances.
  • Textual data Web, NLP, search.
  • Complex structures chemistry, economics.
  • Sequence data bioinformatics.
  • Multimedia data images, video.
  • Signals dynamic data, biosignals.
  • AI data logical problems, games, behavior

Computational Intelligence

KnowledgeArtificial Intelligence
CI AI definition
  • Computational Intelligence is concerned with
    solving effectively non-algorithmic
    problems.This corresponds to all cognitive
    processes, including low-level ones (perception).
  • Artificial Intelligence is a part of CI concerned
    with solving effectively non-algorithmic problems
    requiring systematic reasoning and symbolic
    knowledge representation. Roughly this
    corresponds to high-level cognitive processes.

Turning data into knowledge
  • What should CI methods do?
  • Provide descriptive and predictive non-parametric
    models of data.
  • Allow to classify, approximate, associate,
    correlate, complete patterns.
  • Allow to discover new categories and interesting
  • Help to visualize multi-dimensional relationships
    among data samples.
  • Allow to understand the data in some way.
  • Facilitate creation of ES and reasoning.

Forms of useful knowledge
  • AI/Machine Learning camp
  • Neural nets are black boxes.
  • Unacceptable! Symbolic rules forever.
  • But ... knowledge accessible to humans is in
  • symbols,
  • similarity to prototypes,
  • images, visual representations.
  • What type of explanation is satisfactory?
  • Interesting question for cognitive scientists.
  • Different answers in different fields.

Data understanding
  • Humans remember examples of each category and
    refer to such examples as similarity-based or
    nearest-neighbors methods do.
  • Humans create prototypes out of many examples
    as Gaussian classifiers, RBF networks, neurofuzzy
    systems do.
  • Logical rules are the highest form of
    summarization of knowledge.
  • Types of explanation
  • visualization-based maps, diagrams, relations
  • exemplar-based prototypes and similarity
  • logic-based symbols and rules.

Visualization dendrograms
  • All projections (cuboids) on 2D subspaces are
    identical, dendrograms do not show the structure.

Normal and malignant lymphocytes.
Visualization 2D projections
  • All projections (cuboids) on 2D subspaces are
    identical, dendrograms do not show the structure.

3-bit parity all 5-bit combinations.
Visualization MDS mapping
  • Results of pure MDS mapping centers of
    hierarchical clusters connected.

3-bit parity all 5-bit combinations.
Visualization 3D projections
  • Only age is continuous, other values are binary

Visualization MDS mappings
  • Try to preserve all distances in 2D nonlinear

MDS large sets using LVQ relative mapping.
Prototype-based rules
C-rules (Crisp), are a special case of F-rules
(fuzzy rules). F-rules (fuzzy rules) are a
special case of P-rules (Prototype). P-rules have
the form
  • IF P arg minR D(X,R) THAN Class(X)Class(P)

D(X,R) is a dissimilarity (distance) function,
determining decision borders around prototype P.
P-rules are easy to interpret! IF XYou are
most similar to the PSupermanTHAN You are in
the Super-league. IF XYou are most similar to
the PWeakling THAN You are in the
Failed-league. Similar may involve different
features or D(X,P).
Euclidean distance leads to a Gaussian fuzzy
membership functions product as T-norm.

distance functions lead to different MF. Ex.

  • Manhattan distance
  • prototypes kept, 4 errors, f2 removed
  • Many other solutions.
  • Prototypes SV clusters.

Complex objects
Vector space concept is not sufficient for
complex object. A common set of features is
AI complex objects, states, subproblems. General
approach sufficient to evaluate similarity
D(Oi,Oj). Compare Oi, Oj define transformation
Elementary operators Wk, eg. substrings
substitutions. Many T connecting a pair of
objects Oi and Oj objects exist. Cost of
transformation sum of Wk costs. Similarity
lowest transformation costs. Bioinformatics
sophisticated similarity functions for
sequences.Dynamic programming finds similarities
in reasonable time. Use adaptive costs and
general framework for SBM methods.

Connection of CI with AI
AI/CI division is harmful for science! GOFAI
operators, state transformations and search
techniques are basic tools in AI solving problems
requiring systematic reasoning. CI methods may
provide useful heuristics for AI and define
metric relations between states, problems or
complex objects.
Example combinatorial productivity in AI systems
and FSM. Later decision tree for complex
Electric circuit example
Answering questions in complex domains requires
reasoning. Qualitative behavior of electric
circuit 7 variables, but Ohms law VIR, or
Kirhoffs law VtV1V2
Train a NeuroFuzzy system on Ohms and Kirhoffs
laws. Without solving equations answer questions
of the type If R2 grows, R1 Vt are constant,
what will happen with the current I and voltages
V1, V2 ? (taken from the PDP book, McClleland,
Rumelhart, Hinton)
Electric circuit search
AI create search tree, CI provide guiding
intuition. Any law of the form ABC or ABC,
ex VIR, has 13 true facts, 14 false facts and
may be learned by NF system.
Geometrical representation increasing, -
decreasing, 0 constant Find combination of Vt,
Rt, I, V1, V2, R1, R2 for which all 5
constraints are fulfilled. For 111 cases put of
Search and check if X can be , 0, -, laws are
not satisfied if F(Vt0, Rt, I, V1, V2, R10,
R2) 0
Heuristic search
If R2 grows, R1 Vt are constant, what will
happen with the current I and voltages V1, V2 ?
We know that R2 , R1 0, Vt 0, V1?, V2?,
Rt?, I ? Take V1 and check ifF(Vt0,
Rt?, I?, V1, V2?, R10, R2) gt0 Since for
all V1, 0 and the function is F()gt0 take
variable that leads to unique answer, Rt
Single search path solves the problems. Useful
also in approximate reasoning where only some
conditions are fulfilled.
Logical rules
  • Crisp logic rules for continuous x use
    linguistic variables (predicate functions).

sk(x) s True XkL x L X'k, for example
small(x) Truexx lt 1 medium(x)
Truexx Î 1,2 large(x) Truexx gt
2 Linguistic variables are used in crisp
(prepositional, Boolean) logic rules IF
small-height(X) AND has-hat(X) AND has-beard(X)
THEN (X is a Brownie) ELSE IF ... ELSE ...
Crisp logic decisions
  • Crisp logic is based on rectangular membership

True/False values jump from 0 to 1. Step
functions are used for partitioning of the
feature space.
Very simple hyper-rectangular decision borders.
Severe limitation on the expressive power of
crisp logical rules!
DT decisions borders
  • Decision trees lead to specific decision borders.
  • SSV tree on Wine data, proline flavanoids

Decision tree forests many decision trees of
similar accuracy, but different selectivity and
Logical rules - advantages
  • Logical rules, if simple enough, are preferable.
  • Rules may expose limitations of black box
  • Only relevant features are used in rules.
  • Rules may sometimes be more accurate than NN and
    other CI methods.
  • Overfitting is easy to control, rules usually
    have small number of parameters.
  • Rules forever !? A logical rule about logical
    rules is

Logical rules - limitations
  • Logical rules are preferred but ...
  • Only one class is predicted p(CiX,M) 0 or 1
  • black-and-white picture may be inappropriate in
    many applications.
  • Discontinuous cost function allow only
    non-gradient optimization.
  • Sets of rules are unstable small change in the
    dataset leads to a large change in structure of
    complex sets of rules.
  • Reliable crisp rules may reject some cases as
  • Interpretation of crisp rules may be misleading.
  • Fuzzy rules are not so comprehensible.

Rules - choices
  • Simplicity vs. accuracy.
  • Confidence vs. rejection rate.

p is a hit p- false alarm p- is a miss.
Accuracy (overall) A(M) p p--
Error rate L(M) p- p-
Rejection rate R(M)prp-r 1-L(M)-A(M)
Sensitivity S(M) p p /p
Specificity S-(M) p-- p-- /p-
Neural networks and rules
Myocardial Infarction
Knowledge from networks
  • Simplify networks force most weights to 0,
    quantize remaining parameters, be constructive!
  • Regularization mathematical technique
    improving predictive abilities of the network.
  • Result MLP2LN neural networks that are
    equivalent to logical rules.

  • Converts MLP neural networks into a network
    performing logical operations (LN).

Input layer
Output one node per class.
Aggregation better features
Rule units threshold logic
Linguistic units windows, filters
Learning dynamics
Decision regions shown every 200 training epochs
in x3, x4 coordinates borders are optimally
placed with wide margins.
Neurofuzzy systems
Fuzzy m(x)0,1 (no/yes) replaced by a degree
m(x)?0,1. Triangular, trapezoidal, Gaussian ...
M.f-s in many dimensions
  • Feature Space Mapping (FSM) neurofuzzy system.
  • Neural adaptation, estimation of probability
    density distribution (PDF) using single hidden
    layer network (RBF-like) with nodes realizing
    separable functions

Heterogeneous systems
  • Homogenous systems one type of building
    blocks, same type of decision borders.
  • Ex neural networks, SVMs, decision trees, kNNs
  • Committees combine many models together, but lead
    to complex models that are difficult to

Discovering simplest class structures, its
inductive bias requires heterogeneous adaptive
systems (HAS). Ockham razor simpler systems are
better. HAS examples NN with many types of
neuron transfer functions. k-NN with different
distance functions. DT with different types of
test criteria.
GhostMiner Philosophy
  • GhostMiner, data mining tools from our lab.
  • Separate the process of model building and
    knowledge discovery from model use gt
    GhostMiner Developer GhostMiner Analyzer.
  • There is no free lunch provide different type
    of tools for knowledge discovery. Decision tree,
    neural, neurofuzzy, similarity-based, committees.
  • Provide tools for visualization of data.
  • Support the process of knowledge discovery/model
    building and evaluating, organizing it into

  • MMPI (Minnesota Multiphasic Personality
    Inventory) psychometric test.
  • Printed forms are scanned or computerized version
    of the test is used.
  • Raw data 550 questions, exI am getting tired
    quickly Yes - Dont know - No
  • Results are combined into 10 clinical scales and
    4 validity scales using fixed coefficients.
  • Each scale measures tendencies towards
    hypochondria, schizophrenia, psychopathic
    deviations, depression, hysteria, paranoia etc.

Scanned form
Computer input
  • There is no simple correlation between single
    values and final diagnosis.
  • Results are displayed in form of a histogram,
    called a psychogram. Interpretation depends on
    the experience and skill of an expert, takes into
    account correlations between peaks.

Goal an expert system providing evaluation and
interpretation of MMPI tests at an expert level.
Problem agreement between experts only 70 of
the time alternative diagnosis and personality
changes over time are important.
Psychometric data
  • 1600 cases for woman, same number for men.
  • 27 classes norm, psychopathic, schizophrenia,
    paranoia, neurosis, mania, simulation,
    alcoholism, drug addiction, criminal tendencies,
    abnormal behavior due to ...

Psychometric Expert
  • Probabilities for different classes. For greater
    uncertainties more classes are predicted.
  • Fitting the rules to the conditions
  • typically 3-5 conditions per rule, Gaussian
    distributions around measured values that fall
    into the rule interval are shown in green.
  • Verbal interpretation of each case, rule and
    scale dependent.

MMPI probabilities
MMPI rules
MMPI verbal comments
  • Probability of classes versus input uncertainty.
  • Detailed input probabilities around the measured
    values vs. change in the single scale changes

  • Interactive multidimensional scaling zooming on
    the new case to inspect its similarity to other

Class probability/uncertainty
Class probability/feature
MDS visualization
  • Data understanding is challenging problem.
  • Classification rules are frequently only the
    first step and may not be the best solution.
  • Visualization is always helpful.
  • P-rules may be competitive if complex decision
    borders are required, providing different types
    of rules.
  • Understanding of complex objects is possible,
    although difficult, using adaptive costs and
    distance as least expensive transformations
    (action principles in physics).
  • Great applications are coming!

  • Fully automatic universal data analysis systems
    press the button and wait for the truth
  • Discovery of theories rather than data models
  • Integration with image/signal analysis
  • Integration with reasoning in complex domains
  • Combining expert systems with neural networks
  • .

We are slowly getting there. More more
computational intelligence tools (including our
own) are available.
