Computing with Perceptions for the Linguistic Description of Complex Phenomena through the Analysis of Time Series Data

A. Ramos-Soto, A. Bugarín, S. Barro

Abstract

We are living in a world which is increasingly flooded with vast amounts of data. As a consequence, the use of techniques allowing to exploit and explain the information contained in this raw data has become mandatory. In this context, more human-friendly alternatives to standard techniques like statistics or data mining approaches are being considered. Among them, the soft computing field provides a set of tools allowing the creation of linguistic descriptions of data. These are automatically generated textual explanations that comprise the most relevant information that is implicit in the data, providing linguistic concepts which deal with the imprecision and ambiguity of language through the use of fuzzy sets. Following this research line, the Ph.D. we propose explores the potential of this field by providing real solutions employing linguistic descriptions and also extending the current theoretical base to consider a higher expressiveness.
