Knowledge representation is very important in intelligent systems -e.g. for knowledge discovery, data mining, and machine learning. The human brain, a significant intelligent system, works with a huge number of spiking neurons. Based on spiking neuron models a new generation of spiking neural networks (SNNs) has been developed for artificial intelligence systems. SNNs are computationally more powerful than conventional artificial neural networks. In this paper, the spiking neuron model is applied to represent logic rules and fuzzy rules. Based on the STDP (Spike Timing Dependent Plasticity) principle, a new SNN model is proposed for pattern recognition. An efficient learning rule derived from the STDP is applied for self-organizing the input training set efficiently. An example, Animal-Growth-Record, is used to explain the principle of the SNN model. Benchmark data sets are applied to compare the proposed approach with other approaches. As there are very efficient learning rules in the SNN model, the model can be applied not only for fusion of multi-sensory data, but also for data mining in large databases with large numbers of attributes.
