The purpose of this paper is to propose the novel generalized exponential intuitionistic fuzzy entropy (GIFE) and generalized exponential interval valued intuitionistic fuzzy entropy (GIVIFE) with interval area. First, we propose a novel GIFE. Then we compare the new GIFE with the existing intuitionistic fuzzy entropy (IFE) measures. Second, we define the interval area and the new axioms for the interval valued intuitionistic fuzzy entropy (IVIFE). Third, according to the newly defined axioms for the IVIFE, we use the interval area to construct the new GIVIFE. Finally, the advantages of the new generalized entropy measures are compared with the existing IVIFE measures by some examples. The two novel generalized exponential entropy measures can distinguish the special cases well. We have the conclusion that the two novel generalized entropy measures are reasonable and more flexible than the existing entropy.
