There is a researh project "Using external knowledge in neural network
training and structure" at Lappeenranta University of Technology
(Finland) <URL:>

They have presented algorithms, where constraints can be stated with
fuzzy-like terms for different order derivatives of the mapping,
allowing a considerable amount of background knowledge to be trained
to the MLP network. Fuzzy-rules have now been incorporated into a
commercial neural network process control tool.

Algorithms are presented in the following two articles:

with Inaccurate Derivative Information", Proc. 1995 IEEE
International Conference on Neural Networks ICNN'95, Perth, WA, Vol.

Regularization of Multilayer Perceptron Learning", Submitted to
International Conference on Artificial Neural Networks, ICANN'96,
Bochum, Germany, 16-19 July, 1996

There is another researh project At Tampere University of Technology
(Finland) "Neuro-Fuzzy Systems"

List of Publications at <URL:>
Most of them are about fuzzy self-organizing maps and neuro-fuzzy
