Professor Pedrycz serves as an Editor-in-Chief of Information Sciences, Editor-in-Chief of WIREs Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery (Wiley), and Co-editor-in-Chief of Int. J. of Granular Computing (Springer) and J. of Data Information and Management (Springer).
This lecture covers selected fundamentals of Machine Learning and Granular Computing to establish a conceptual and algorithmic setting for new synergistic developments at the junction of these two highly visible technologies of design and analysis of intelligent systems.
Main architectures, learning models, and learning paradigms encountered in Machine Learning are presented in a concise and focused manner. The concepts of information granules and Granular Computing are presented by focusing on the origin and motivating factors behind the emergence of information granules. It is demonstrated how various ways of conceptualization of information granules in terms of fuzzy sets, sets, rough sets, among others lead to the realization of efficient and enhanced synergistic solutions to the classification and prediction problems encountered in Machine Learning. The design aspects of information granules are discussed.
