Multi-sphere Support Vector Data Description (MS-SVDD) has been proposed in our previous work. MS-SVDD aims to build a set of spherically shaped boundaries that provide a better data description to the normal dataset and an iterative learning algorithm that determines the set of spherically shaped boundaries. MS-SVDD could improve classification rate for one-class classification problems comparing with SVDD. However MS-SVDD requires a small abnormal data set to build the spherically shaped boundaries for the normal data set. In this paper, we propose a new fuzzy MS-SVDD that can be used when only the normal data set is available. Experimental results on 14 well-known datasets and a comparison between fuzzy MS-SVDD and SVDD are also presented.
