Prototype-based rules are an interesting alternative to fuzzy and crisp logical rules, in many cases providing simpler, more accurate and more comprehensible description of the data. Such rules may be directly converted to fuzzy rules. A new algorithm for generation of prototype-based rules is introduced and a comparison with results obtained by neurofuzzy systems on a number of datasets provided.
