THE MAMDANI CONTROLLER IN PREDICTION OF THE SURVIVAL LENGTH IN ELDERLY GASTRIC PATIENTS

Hang Zettervall, Elisabeth Rakus-Andersson, Henrik Forssell

Abstract

Strict analytic formulas are the tools derived for determining the formal relationships between a sample of independent variables and a variable which they affect. If we cannot formalize the function tying the independent and dependent variables then we will utilize fuzzy control actions. The algorithm is particularly adaptable to support the problem of prognosticating the survival length for gastric cancer patients. We thus formulate the objective of the current paper as the utilization of fuzzy control action for the purpose of making the survival prognoses.
