    Evolvable Takagi-Sugeno (T-S) models are fuzzy-rule-based models with the ability to continuously learn and adapt to incoming samples from data streams. The model adjusts both premise and consequent parameters to enhance the performance of the model. This paper introduces a new methodology for the estimation of the premise parameters in the evolvable T-S (eTS) model. Incremental updates for the weighted sample mean and inverse of the covariance matrix enable us to construct an evolvable fuzzy rule base that is used to detect outliers and regime changes in the input stream. We compare our model with Angelov s eTS+ model with artificial and real data.
