Sigma count measures scalar cardinality of fuzzy sets. A problem with sigma count is that values of scalar cardinality are calculated entirely from many small membership grades or entirely from few large membership grades. Two novel scalar cardinality measures are proposed for the fitness of a genetic algorithm for tuning membership functions prior to fuzzy association rule mining so that individual membership grades are larger. Preliminary results show a decrease in small membership grades and an increase in large membership grades for fuzzy association rules tested on real-world benchmark datasets.
