Artificial neural networks (ANN) have demonstrated good predictive performance in a wide variety of practical problems. However, due to poor comprehensibility of the learned ANN, and the inability to represent explanation structures, ANNs are not considered sufficient for the general representation of knowledge. This paper details a methodology that represents the knowledge of a trained network in the form of restricted first-order logic rules, and subsequently allows user interaction by interfacing with a knowledge based reasoner.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
