Abstract

Reasoning with fuzzy sets can be achieved through measures such as similarity and distance. However, these measures can often give misleading results when considered independently, for example giving the same value for two different pairs of fuzzy sets. This is particularly a problem where many fuzzy sets are generated from real data, and while two different measures may be used to automatically compare such fuzzy sets, it is difficult to interpret two different results. This is especially true where a large number of fuzzy sets are being compared as part of a reasoning system. This paper introduces a method for combining the results of multiple measures into a single measure for the purpose..
