A new scheme of knowledge-based classification and rule generation using a fuzzy multilayer perceptron (MLP) is proposed. Knowledge collected from a data set is initially encoded among the connection weights in terms of class a priori probabilities. This encoding also includes incorporation of hidden nodes corresponding to both the pattern classes and their complementary regions. The network architecture, in terms of both links and nodes, is then refined during training. Node growing and link pruning are also resorted to. Rules are generated from the trained network using the input, output, and connection weights in order to justify any decision(s) reached. Negative rules corresponding to a pattern not belonging to a class can also be obtained. These are useful for inferencing in ambiguous cases. Results on real life and synthetic data demonstrate that the speed of learning and classification performance of the proposed scheme are better than that obtained with the fuzzy and conventional versions of the MLP (involving no initial knowledge encoding). Both convex and concave decision regions are considered in the process
