Abstract: 

Fuzzy Rule-Based Classification Systems (FRBCS) are highly in- vestigated by researchers due to their noise-stability and interpretability. Un- fortunately, generating a rule-base which is sufficiently both accurate and inter- pretable, is a hard process. Rule weighting is one of the approaches to improve the accuracy of a pre-generated rule-base without modifying the original rules. Most of the proposed methods by now, may over- ton training data due to generating complex decision boundaries. In this paper, a margin-based opti- mization model is proposed to improve the performance on unseen data. By this model, fixed-size margins are defined along the decision boundaries and the rule weights are adjusted such that the marginal space would be empty of training instances as much as possible. This model is proposed to support the single-winner reasoning method with a special cost-function to remove unde- sired effects of noisy instances. The model is proposed to be solved by a fast well-known local search method. With this solving method, a huge amount of irrelevant and redundant rules are removed as a side effect. Two artificial and 16 real world datasets from UCI repository are used to show that the proposed method significantly outperforms other methods with proper choice of the margin size, which is the single parameter of this method.
