Rule Extraction from neural networks on a medical task

Towsey, Michael W. & Diederich, Joachim (1998) Rule Extraction from neural networks on a medical task. In Downs, T., Frean, M., & Gallagher, M. (Eds.) Preceedings of the Ninth Australian Conference on Neural Networks (ACNN'98), 11-13th February, 1998, QUT, Brisbane, AUstralia.


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.

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.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
