Neuro-fuzzy modeling is a computing paradigm of soft computing and very efficient for system modeling problems. It integrates two well-known modeling approaches of neural networks and fuzzy systems, and therefore possesses advantages of them, i.e., learning capability, robustness, human-like reasoning, and high understandability. Up to now, many approaches have been proposed for neuro-fuzzy modeling. However, it still exists many problems need to be solved. In this chapter, the authors firstly give an introduction to neuro-fuzzy system modeling. Secondly, some basic concepts of neural networks, fuzzy systems, and neuro-fuzzy systems are introduced. Also, they review and discuss some important literatures about neuro-fuzzy modeling. Thirdly, the issue for solving two most important problems of neuro-fuzzy modeling is considered, i.e., structure identification and parameter identification. Therefore, the authors present two approaches to solve these two problems, respectively. Fourthly, the future and emerging trends of neuro-fuzzy modeling is discussed. Besides, the possible research issues about neuro-fuzzy modeling are suggested. Finally, the authors give a conclusion.
