A pseudo-outer product based fuzzy neural network using the compositional rule of inference and singleton fuzzifier [POPFNN-CRI(S)] is proposed in this paper. The correspondence of each layer in the proposed POPFNN-CRI(S) to the compositional rule of inference using standard T-norm and fuzzy relation gives it a strong theoretical foundation. The proposed POPFNN-CRI(S) training consists of two phases; namely: the fuzzy membership derivation phase using the novel fuzzy Kohonen partition (FKP) and pseudo Kohonen partition (PFKP) algorithms, and the rule identification phase using the novel one-pass POP learning algorithm. The proposed two-phase learning process effectively constructs the membership functions and identifies the fuzzy rules. Extensive experimental results based on the classification performance of the POPFNN-CRI(S) using the Anderson's Iris data are presented for discussion. Results show that the POPFNN-CRI(S) has taken only 15 training iterations and misclassify only three out of all the 150 patterns in the Anderson's Iris data.
