Today hybrid computing is a popular framework for solving complex problems. If we have knowledge expressed in rules, we can build an Expert System, and if we have data, or can learn from stimulation (training) then we can use Artificial Neural Networks. In this paper we present the FUzzy NEUrule System (FUNEUS) which is a Neuro Fuzzy approach based on fuzzy Adaline neurons and uses Differential Evolution for optimization of membership functions. According to previous Neuro-fuzzy approaches and a well-defined hybrid system HYMES, FUNEUS is an attempt to the direction for integration of neural and fuzzy components with Differential evolution. Despite the fact that it remains difficult to compare neurofuzzy systems conceptually and evaluate their performance, early experimental results proved a promising performance and the need for further evaluation in other application domains.
