A neuro-fuzzy system for isolated hand-written digit recognition using a similarity fuzzy measure is presented. The system is composed of two main blocks: a first block that normalizes the input and compares it with a set of fuzzy patterns, and a second block with a multilayer perceptron to perform a neuronal classification. The comparison with the fuzzy patterns is performed via a fuzzy similarity measure that uses the Yager parametric t-norms and t-conorms. Along this work, several values of the parameters have been studied, in order to obtain the best classification. The simplicity of the method makes it extremely quick and provides a recognition accuracy about 90% in classification of isolated digits, making it an attractive method for practical applications.
