Abstract

The aim of this contribution is to point out the importance of interpretability of fuzzy rule-based systems. We try to approach this key property axiomatically, as a starting point, restricting to interpretability of linguistic variables (in Zadeh’s sense). The proposed approach is underlined with an intuitive example. Finally, the benefits of considering interpretability in design and tuning of fuzzy systems are discussed.
