Abstract: A fuzzy collaborative intelligence system is built in the present work to improve the performance of forecasting the price of a semiconductor product. In the fuzzy collaborative intelligence system, some domain experts are asked to put forward their views on several aspects. These views are incorporated into a fuzzy back propagation network (FBPN) to generate fuzzy-valued price forecasts. To derive a single representative value from these fuzzy price forecasts, the concept of fuzzy group learning tree (FGLT) is proposed. The effectiveness of the fuzzy collaborative intelligence system was validated with a real case.


Keywords: semiconductor prices; fuzzy collaborative intelligence; price forecasting; fuzzy back propagation network; FBPN; semiconductor products; fuzzy group learning tree; semiconductors; fuzzy logic.
