abstract = {Multicriteria genetic algorithms can produce fuzzy models with a good balance between their precision and their complexity. The accuracy of a model is usually measured by the mean squared error of its residual. When vague training data is used, the residual becomes a fuzzy number, and it is needed to optimize a combination of crisp and fuzzy objectives in order to learn balanced models. In this paper, we will extend the NSGA-II algorithm to this last case, and test it over a practical problem of causal modeling in marketing. Different setups of this algorithm are compared, and it is shown that the algorithm proposed here is able to improve the generalization properties of those models obtained from the defuzzified training data.},

abstract = {When questionnaires are designed, each factor under study can be assigned a set of different items. The answers to these questions must be merged in order to obtain the level of that input. Therefore, it is typical for data acquired from questionnaires that each of the inputs and outputs are not numbers, but sets of values. In this paper, we represent the information contained in such a set of values by means of a fuzzy number. A fuzzy statistics-based interpretation of the semantic of a fuzzy set is used for this purpose, as we consider that this fuzzy number is a nested family of confidence intervals for the value of the variable. The accuracy of the model is expressed by means of an interval-valued function, derived from a definition of the variance of a fuzzy random variable. A multicriteria genetic learning algorithm, able to optimize this interval-valued function, is proposed. As an example of the application of this algorithm, a practical problem of modeling in marketing is solved},

abstract = {For certain problems of casual modeling in marketing, the information is obtained by means of questionnaires. When these questionnaires include more than one item for each observable variable, the value of this variable can not be assigned a number, but a potentially scattered set of values. In this paper, we propose to represent the information contained in this set of values by means of a fuzzy number. A novel fuzzy statistics-based interpretation of the semantic of a fuzzy set will be used for this purpose, as we will consider that this fuzzy number is a nested family of confidence intervals for a central tendency measure of the value of the variable. A genetic learning algorithm, able to extract association fuzzy rules from this data, is also proposed. The accuracy of the model will be expressed by means of a fuzzy-valued function. We propose to jointly minimize this function and the complexity of the rule based model with multicriteria genetic algorithms, that in turn will depend on a fuzzy ranking-based ordering of individuals.},

abstract = {Tuning fuzzy rule-based systems for linguistic modeling is an interesting and widely developed task. It involves adjusting the membership functions composing the knowledge base. To do that, changing the parameters defining each membership function as using linguistic hedges to slightly modify them may be considered. This paper introduces a genetic tuning process for jointly making these two tuning approaches. The experimental results show that our method obtains accurate linguistic models in both approximation and generalization aspects.},
