Abstract

Rule-Based Fuzzy Cognitive Map (RBFCM) is proposed as an evolution of Fuzzy Causal Maps (FCM) to allow more complete and complex representation of cognition so that relations other than monotonic causality are made possible. This paper shows how RBFCM can be viewed in the context of relation algebra, and proposes a novel model for representing and reasoning causal knowledge relation. The mapping model and rules are introduced to infer three kinds of causal relations that FCM can’t support. Capability analysis shows that our model is much better than FCM in emulating real world.
