Summary The use of the Choquet integral in data fusion processes allows for the effective modelling of interactions and dependencies between data features or criteria. Its application requires identification of the defining capacity (also known as fuzzy measure) values. The main limiting factor is the complexity of the underlying parameter learning problem, which grows exponentially in the number of variables. However, in practice we may have expert knowledge regarding which of the subsets of criteria interact with each other, and which groups are independent. In this paper we study hierarchical aggregation processes, architecturally similar to feed-forward neural networks, but which allow for the simplification of the fitting problem both in terms of the number of variables and monotonicity constraints. We note that the Möbius representation lets us identify a number of relationships between the overall fuzzy measure and the data pipeline structure. Included in our findings are simplified fuzzy measures that generalise both k-intolerant and k-interactive capacities.
