In the paper, the hybrid clustering-classification neural network is proposed. This network allows to increase a quality of information processing under the condition of overlapping classes due to the rational choice of learning rate parameter and introducing special procedure of fuzzy reasoning in the clustering-classification process, which occurs both with external learning signal (“supervised”), and without one (“unsupervised”). As similarity measure neighborhood function or membership one, cosine structures are used, which allow to provide a high flexibility due to self-learning-learning process and to provide some new useful properties. Many realized experiments have confirmed the efficiency of proposed hybrid clustering-classification neural network; also, this network was used for solving diagnostics task of reactive arthritis.
