We present results for rule extraction from a neural network using the RULEX algorithm. Performance is compared to C4.5 and to an MLP. The task is to classify electroencehalogram (EEG) waveforms according to presence or not of an artefact. The RULEX algorithm yielded just one rule which outperformed both C4.5 and the MLP. Methods are described to estimate limiting performance of any classifier whatsoever on the EEG data set. This provides an independent benchmark to assess RULEX.
