Many independent component analysis (ICA) algorithms have been proposed for blind source separation. These algorithms belong to the LMS-type algorithm in natural. Hence, the choice of the step-size reflects a tradeoff between misadjustment and the speed of convergence. Based on the separation state of outputs of the neural network for ICA, the paper develops a fuzzy inference-based step-size selection algorithm. The fuzzy inference system consists of two inputs (the second- and higher order correlation coefficients of output components) and one output (the fuzzy learning rate). In this way, the ICA algorithms become more efficient, which is verified by simulation results.
