This paper proposes a classification system based on a hierarchical modular architecture. Such an architecture is designed to address high-dimensional classification problems, that are characterized by a high number of input features and a large number of classes. The hierarchical approach decomposes a "many-class" problem into a hierarchy of "few-class" sub-problems, while the {modular approach} allows efficient treatment of high-dimensional input spaces. Specifically, each classifier in the hierarchy has a modular structure. Each module is implemented as a neuro-fuzzy network that operates on a distinct region of the input space. As an application, the proposed architecture is employed to solve the problem of classifying musical instruments from the sound they produce.

Abstract

This paper proposes a classification system based on a hierarchical modular architecture. Such an architecture is designed to address high-dimensional classification problems, that are characterized by a high number of input features and a large number of classes. The hierarchical approach decomposes a "many-class" problem into a hierarchy of "few-class" sub-problems, while the {modular approach} allows efficient treatment of high-dimensional input spaces. Specifically, each classifier in the hierarchy has a modular structure. Each module is implemented as a neuro-fuzzy network that operates on a distinct region of the input space. As an application, the proposed architecture is employed to solve the problem of classifying musical instruments from the sound they produce.
