Abstract: This paper describes an optimization of interval type-2 and type-1 fuzzy integrators in ensembles of ANFIS models with genetic algorithms (GAs), this with emphasis on its application to the prediction of chaotic time series, where the goal is to minimize the prediction error. The Mackey-Glass time series was considered to validate the proposed ensemble approach. The methods used for the integration of the ensembles of ANFIS are: type-1 and interval type-2 Mamdani fuzzy inference systems (FIS). Genetic Algorithms are used for optimization of the membership function parameters of the FIS in each integrator. In the experiments we changed the type of the membership functions for each type-1 and interval type-2 FIS, thereby increasing the complexity of the training, The output (Forecast) generated by each integrator is calculated with the RMSE (root mean square error) to minimize the prediction error, therefore we compared the performance obtained by each FIS.
