A fuzzy neural network based on support vector learning mechanism for function approximation is proposed in this paper. Support vector regression (SVR) is a novel method for tackling the problems of function approximation and regression estimation based on the statistical learning theory. SVR has been shown to have robust properties against noise. A novel support-vector-regression based fuzzy neural network (SVRFNN) by integrating SVR technology into FNN is developed. The SVRFNN combines the high accuracy and robustness of support vector regression (SVR) and the efficient human-like reasoning of FNN for function approximation. Experimental results show that the proposed SVFNN for function approximation can achieve good approximation performance with drastically reduced number of fuzzy kernel functions.
