Abstract: A neuro-fuzzy-combiner (NFC) is proposed to design an efficient multiple classifier system (MCS) with an aim to have an effective solution scheme for difficult classification problems. Although, a number of combiners exist in the literature, they do not provide consistently good performance on different datasets. In this scenario: 1) we propose an effective multiple classifier system (MCS) based on NFC that fuses the output of a set of fuzzy classifiers; 2) conduct an extensive experimental analysis to justify the effectiveness of the proposed NFC. In the proposed technique, we used a neural network to combine the output of a set of fuzzy classifiers using the principles of neuro-fuzzy hybridisation. The neural combiner adaptively learns its parameters depending on the input data, and thus the output is robust. Superiority of the proposed combiner has been demonstrated experimentally on five standard datasets and two remote sensing images. It performed consistently better than the existing combiners over all the considered datasets.
