This paper presents a classification method based on the KNN-Fuzzy classification algorithm, supported by Genetic Algorithm. It discusses how to consider data clustering according to the Fuzzy logic and its consequences in the area of Data Mining. Analyses are made upon the results obtained in the classification of several data bases in order to demonstrate the proposed theory.
