Abstract

In this paper, we present a document categorization method based on the hierarchical fuzzy networks. The proposed model employs the divide-and-conquer principle to resolve documents categorization problem based on a predefined hierarchical structure. The final classification framework can be interpreted as a hierarchical array of non-linear decision tree. Each node in the tree represents one filter. The fuzzy K-nearest-neighbor (KNN)-based filter decides that the unknown document belongs to the corresponding category or not. We use the Reuters-21578 news data set to evaluate the performance of the proposed method.
