Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) refers to wireless technology that is used to seamlessly and automatically track various amounts of items around an environment. This technology has the potential to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of tasks such as shopping and inventory saving commercial organisations both time and money. Unfortutely, the wide scale adoption of RFID systems have been hindered due to issues such as false-negative and false-positive anomalies that lower the integrity of captured data. In this chapter, we propose the utilisation three highly intelligent classifiers, specifically a Bayesian Network, Neural Network and Non-Monotonic Reasoning, to handle missing, wrong and duplicate observations. After discovering the potential from using Bayesian Networks, Neural Networks and Non-Monotonic Reasoning to correct captured data, we decided to improve upon the origil approach by combining the three methodologies into an integrated classifier. From our experimental evaluation, we have shown the high results obtained from cleaning both false-negative and false-positive anomalies using each of our concepts, and the potential it holds to enhance physical RFID systems.
