This paper reports on a new approach for automatic learning of general type-2 fuzzy logic systems (GT2FLSs) using simulated annealing (SA). The learning process in this work starts without an initial interval type-2 fuzzy system and has an objective to optimize all membership function parameters involved in the general type-2 fuzzy set in two stages. This is a novel methodology for learning GT2FLSs using the verticalslices representation. The methodology used here is based on a proposed

The first technique is the sampling method, which is nondeterministic. The second technique is the vertical-slices centroid type-reduction (VSCTR), which is deterministic. Both models as well as an interval type-2 fuzzy logic system (IT2FLS) model have been applied to predict a Mackey-Glass time series. A comparison of the results of modeling these problems using the three models showed more accurate modeling for the GT2FLSs when using the VSCTR deterministic defuzzification method. It has also been shown that a GT2FLS with VSCTR defuzzification is more able to handle uncertainty than an IT2FLS, although the latter was faster.
