Nonlinear systems are difficult to analyze and control due to their intrinsic complexity. During the past decades, Fuzzy-Model-Based (FMB) control strategy has been recognized as one of the most effective control approaches for nonlinear systems. Takagi–Sugeno (T–S) fuzzy model plays an important role in FMB control systems and it has demonstrated a wide range of successful industrial applications. Thanks to its rigorous mathematical foundation, the stability analysis and control synthesis of T-S FMB control systems can be conducted in a systematic way. Prof. Kazuo Tanaka has made pioneering significant contribution to investigate the stability issues of T-S FMB control systems and relaxed the stability conditions by proposing the well-known parallel distributed compensation (PDC) method, which is the most popular method adopted to deal with (type-1) T-S FMB control systems.

Considering the ability of dealing with uncertainty directly, the importance and development of type-2 fuzzy sets and theory have been highly noticed and promoted by Prof. Jerry M. Mendel. Many researchers have devoted to contributing to the field of type-2 fuzzy set and its control applications. Just name a few, Prof. Jerry M. Mendel and Prof. Robert I. Bob John made significant contribution to advertize the necessity of (interval) type-2 fuzzy set; Prof. Dongrui Wu and Prof. Jerry M. Mendel developed the enhanced Karnik-Mendel algorithms for type-reduction; Prof. Woei Wan Tan utilized type-2 fuzzy logic to design the practical controllers; Prof. Tufan Kumbasar and Prof. Hani Hagras successfully applied the type-2 fuzzy set in control of mobile robots subject to uncertainty.

Introducing type-2 fuzzy sets into control strategies is a promising way to push the FMB control techniques to a new frontier. Beginning with the first attempt on the stability analysis and control synthesis of (interval) type-2 FMB control system by Dr. H.K. Lam in 2008 (Lam, H.K. and Seneviratne, L.D., 2008. Stability analysis of interval type-2 fuzzy-model-based control systems. IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics, Part B (Cybernetics), 38(3), pp.617-628), recently, the research on interval type-2 FMB control systems has drawn the attention of researchers. It is also worth mentioning that Prof. William Melek and Prof. Hao Ying have contributed excellent research works to the type-2 T-S/TSK FMB control field. Nonlinearity and uncertainty are generally considered as challenging components to be addressed during the system analysis and control design. The merit of type-2 FMB control techniques is to deal with nonlinearity/uncertainty in the system through type-2 fuzzy sets. Recent research outcomes of type-2 FMB have verified that type-2 FMB control strategy can be successfully applied to real-world nonlinear systems subject to uncertainty. Although there were already some seminal works on type-2 FMB control systems that can be found in the literature, there are still many interesting related topics await.

The potential research topics for type-2 FMB control systems can be the relaxation of stability/stabilization conditions, control methodologies, design of robust type-2 fuzzy controller, performance realization of type-2 fuzzy controller, applications of type-2 fuzzy control theory, etc. Inspired by the great research potential of type-2 FMB control systems, we believe that further efforts are worth to be devoted into these areas, which can promote the development of type-2 FMB control research and take it into next level.

This special issue is to serve as a vehicle to promote some focused frontier topics in the field of type-2 FMB control systems. A collection of high-quality type-2 fuzzy control related papers in a special issue will lead to the long-term impact that the accepted papers will serve as an indicator of the most influential topics, highlight the unique advantages of type-2 fuzzy control techniques, and provide reference and driving force in support of the research development.

  • principles and theories of development and learning;
  • development of skills in biological systems and robots;
  • nature vs nurture, developmental stages;
  • models on the contributions of interaction to learning
  • models on active learning
  • architectures for lifelong learning;
  • emergence of body and affordance perception;
  • analysis and modelling of human motion and state

Over the last five decades fuzzy optimization have found numerous successful applications in diverse fields including operational research, manufacturing, information technology, energy optimization, data science and smart cities, big data analytics and the list goes on. Fuzzy optimization has strongly influenced research and development in other areas of intelligent computing leading to many hybrid and deep learning systems. It has opened up new horizons in thinking, research and development and it will certainly guide us into another half century of progress. Actually, fuzzy optimization is one kind of the approximation of nonlinear optimization techniques, which has basically formed some systematic but not unified theory of fuzzy systems and other fuzzy-sets based methodologies. Fuzzy Optimization and Decision Making is an interdisciplinary area focusing upon methodologies for extracting useful knowledge and experiences from data technology. Specific topics include fuzzy sets, rough sets, statistical methods, parallel/distributed data mining, hybrid fuzzy optimization such as hybrid evolutionary and swarm intelligence methods and human interaction, big data optimization, IoTs, flexibility, reliability and robustness, smart systems in specific domains, high-dimensional data, energy optimization and software engineering, data science, analytics, etc.

The high complexity of neural systems and the large number of constituents with an often unknown functional interconnections lead to significant computational challenges. An important consideration is the development of mathematical models incorporating the many influences of randomness, noise, uncertainty and fuzziness in both their static and time-dependent versions. The quality of prediction by a model highly depends on the integration of imprecise data and the quantification of uncertain structural parameters. A sophisticated analysis of the influence of all types of randomness, uncertainty and noise is indispensable for the development of reliable computational and neural models and programs.
